    Good posts guys, I think I would rather have function over aesthetics (for my everyday needs). I may just meet in the middle and do the 275/70's; why not stand on both sides of the fence? Besides oddball sizing, heavier, and limited tire selection, I had 3 pairs of the BFG's on my silverado and got 50,000+ everytime. I can't find another con to that size, just need to make sure and grab an extra.

    If youre still thinking about the trail teams, I have them with 285/75/16 and all that it rubbed was the little flap in front of the wheel. It rubs no where else for else, maybe it was because I got enough caster so it wouldnt rub the the back?

    Yea everyone is different with the trimming and rubbing, and I don't mind trimming at all, don't know why I'm so indecisive, I guess I've never went beyond a +1 sized tire from stock and just don't want to affect my everyday ride much.

    I vasilated for months on what to get and doing it right. Loving my Toytec ULK and the ride. Still getting damn near 20 MPG overall too which is a nice factor as well.
    No rubs, good ride and off road capable when called upon. What's not to like

    I'm keeping my 265/70/17s. As long as you have decent off road tires I think they look good in that size and you won't have to cut up your new truck.

    Yep, I don't mind the heavier tire and I've had good experiences with the BFG's, functional and aesthetic.

    I run Hankook Dynapro ATm's in 275/70/17 and I think TW member Teamfast runs the BFG in 275/70/17

    Because I thought I made my mind up, but keep on reading through TW, I decided to add a poll to this thread to aid, and ulitmately decide which tires I will be adding to my newly ordered 3" lift (with UCA's). I decided to run stock sport 17" wheels and I do not want spacers. A little trimming is ok, and please, don't recommend 285s, not interested, hopefully this will help some other people. Here are the links to each specific tire in order from poll:

    I would go with the third choice. You are running a 33" tire but it won't be so wide that it will require extreme amounts of trimming and will probably give you decent gas mileage compared to a wide tire.

    255 km2s, duratracs would be my second choice, and probably a more practical choice for on road driving.

    Well 75% is on road driving, but the KM2's wouldn't be too bad on road, from the reading, looking like at most a .5 mpg drop with that size, the only question is endurance...

    My T4R on 255/85/16. I used a 1.25 wheel spacer to push the wheel out of the wheel well more. It looked like the tires were tucked WAY inside the fender without the spacer.

    Even with the spacer the tires tuck into the fender. But without the spacers the truck looked...kinda top heavy. Like a giant with really small feet.

    Interesting , looks like the tires are well outside the fenders in your pics

    I wonder if they would tuck as well with spacers on a Tacoma
