    Hi. I'm new to the forum but I have been reading up for about a month now. I have a 1998 Tacoma SR5 with stock rims and 31 inch Firestone Destination A/Ts. I'm thinking about ordering 16x8 Dick Cepek DC-2s. I know the maxium tire for stock suspension is 26.5/75/16. I was wondering would I have to cut for these or should I step down to 25.5? Thanks! (Im going to go with Mickey Thompson Baja ATz tires if that helps):confused:

    Welcome to TW. The first 3 numbers are the width of the tire in mm, and do not contain a decimal.
