    none - only up-sized tires
    Have looked thru Tacoma World when considering upsizing stock tires on my '05' reg. cab 4-cyl, 5-spd Tacoma. You know... fill up the wheel wells.
    FYI... original tires were 215/70/15; have now fitted 225/75/15's (got at COSTCO.... BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A's.
    I live in the foothills of the Sierra's; so, just for gen'l info., yes, I can tell the difference from the stock/smaller tires to these larger tires. It does make a difference (beyond changes in speedo/odometer) in power when pulling uphill and such. I've seen guys put on 235/75/15's - might look better, but it'll have you dropping down a gear when you're pulling up a long grade. For me, the 225/75/15's (on stock rims) are a good middle of the road; look better than those "roller skate tires", but also allow for power (relative to the 5-speed gearing). That's my 2-cents!
