    Well i got a 2007 Tacoma, reg cab, 5 lug, 4 banger, hes a little guy. The tires that came with the truck are tiny little passenger tires 215/70R15. I work at a tire shop and i can get a good price on 235/75R15 BFG All Terains. Ive been looking to beef him up just a little, and theres beach access where i live, and i like parking on the beach to surf and Q it up, ya knaw.
    Anyway... Alright so my question is Has anybody put this size tire on the same model tacoma? if so does it rub? etc. etc.. Im almost positive that they'll fit nicely without having to get a lift, all the guys i work with agree. But i figured some feedback woudlnt hurt right?

    There is a guy paul gallardo who was running 235/75R15 (not BFGoodrich Ties) on his Tacoma before he lifted his 5 lug. I am not too sure if he had to do some cutting so there will be no rubbing inside the wheel well. Here is a link to his post.

    Here is my 5 lug w/ 215/75R15 BFGoodrich. No lift or cutting required.
