    I wanted to add bigger tires to my 4cylinder but I don't want to lose power. Any ideas on what I should get?

    its a Toyota truck and that's all the modifications needed
    I wouldn't go bigger than p265/70/16 or your performance will go down, also look into getting the lightest weight tire that will meet your driving neeeds

    In touch with reality.

    Or.

    Bigger tires and re-gear your truck at the same time.

    Been running these heavy ass 295's for about a month now. Normal driving is fine, pulling hills isn't that fun, but doable. They measure out to 33 1/8"

    I have a 3in front leveling kit, 1in back leveling kit, and 1.25in tire spacers and I just wanted to make my truck look a little better. I was told bigger tires would do that.

    Sure.

    But that comes at a price. Performance will take a hit and so will fuel economy.

    I went from 245/75/16 to 265/75/16 and lost 20% of my economy and my truck is a bit of a dog.

    I went from the original steel wheels with 245/75-16 Dunlops to a set of 16" TRD Off-Road wheels with 265-70 Firestone Destination LE2s. I don't notice any difference in power in normal driving, but my mileage has dropped by 1 1/2 mpgs in town and 1 mpg on the road. But the look? Worth it.

    Is there a tire that is like the stock size but a bit more rugged looking? To add a more fierce look

    Yes just select mud terrain and pick factory size or an inch bigger. It's still going to be rough especially if your an auto. When I had my 4 banger 4x4 reg cab I put 265/75/16 and hills pissed me off like no other.

    I'm sure there are. Do a little research at a place like tirerack.com, that was mentioned. You can either enter your vehicle specifics or tire size and see what they have available.

    One of the neat things about the site is that you can compare tire specs, weight or diameter, and check reviews.

    There's no difference in power between 4x4 and 4x2.

    Those are E rated right?

    That will be the largest performance loss you can find in that size.

    Not sure I'm trying to do some research. But I'm all new to this stuff.
