    Would these tires fit on a stock 4X4 db cab with or without wheel spacers

    I've been running BFG ATs 275-70-16s for about 4 years on my 2001 Tacoma Double cab 4x4 at stock suspension.

    I'll have to pay attention next tank full. I don't remember it being much different when I first got them, at least not enough to notice.

    and I'm thinking about getting Method Racing Wheels, so I Photoshoped them on. Not sure if I like the black or raw finish.

    Yes, that's correct.

    Thanks for the pic's and a great looking truck. For no lift that tire size(275-70-16) looks awesome on your truck. I think that tire size and tire will be my tire choice when my rugged trails r shot .

    Tires look great. That's the size and tire I'm planning to run once these wear out. How bad do they rub? I was even thinking of possibly even running 275/75/16's, but I'm sure I'd run into some serious rubbing being that tall on the stock lift.

    Never had any rubbing issues with my 275/70s, but I also don't wheel this thing, so I don't know if you wheel over boulders at full droop. I'm in the Chicago area, and like the cabbie in Seattle said, "Chicago... flat like pancake."

    I had to take a heat gun to the plastic under the bumper to keep this size tire from rubbing. I think it was becuase of my wider Dick Cepek DC-1 rims though.

    got those Methods finally since I needed new tires :)
    I went with 265/75/16s, and they rub ever so slightly at full turn on the mud flaps in front.

    Those tires look great. Keep me in touch with the mileage. I 'm also considering that tire and size. I think those tires are 53 lbs each. If possible can you send a picture of the tires width. I do not want those tires if those tires look slimmer than the stock 265/70-16. Thanks

    I'm not aware of any tires coming in this size... If they did, I imagine many of us might be interested, being that there is always the infamous debate between the 265s and 285s.
