    Hey guys, I in the process of getting new rims/tires since the tires that came on my truck are starting to get slick. Could I fit 265/70/17s on 17x8 rims and get them under my 2010 Tacoma Sport WITHOUT any lift? I don't mind cutting a little if necessary. Don't get me wrong, I'm not asking for a handout, I've spent a good while trying to figure this out myself with the other posts/stickies...but I can't seem to grasp the sizes and understand exactly what I can and can't fit. Someone please enlighten me.

    Thanks in advance,
    Brandon

    Those will fit no problem. May have to trim or remove front mud flaps, but other than that you're good.

    Remove the front mudflaps, and you're golden.

    Thanks for the advice guys. After some more research...I think I may actually step up to a 17x9 wheel. I want a little more agressive look, but I really don't want to get the 285 tires for gas mileage, etc. Will 265/70/17s fit on a 17x9 wheel?

    Yes they will work but your rim will most likely be wider than the tread on your tires. Making it look kinda stretched.

    I have 265's on a 9" rim and they aren't stretched at all. 265's are 10.5" wide.

    I personally don't like the bead of the tire to be wider than the contact patch or tread width. A 265 will have around a 8-8.5" tread width.

    I have 16x8's with 265's and they look ok. I miss the 285's, but oh well I think I'll go back to the wider tires next time.
