    so its time for new tires. badly
    heres the deal, im only 18 and in college so im a little short on personal cash as i am jobless right now.
    my dad has agreed to buy me new tires, but i want new rims.
    i just got a 3inch lift on my 2002 prerunner.
    since i do not have money to get rims right now but i need tires.
    could i mount new 285/75R16 on my stock wheels with the lift while i save for new wheels. then later switch them onto my new wheels. id rather not have to buy new tires and wait for them to go bad so i can get the ones i want..
    my plans are to eventually get ProComp 1069 16x8's
    right now i think my stocks are 16x7, could i run 285/75R16s on these wheels?

    You should be able to, but to be absolutely sure, just give Discount a call, and they'll be happy to look it up for you. One inch of wheel width ought to be know problem, but it never hurts to hear it from an expert.

    Keep in mind though, having them move tires from one set of wheels to another is going to run in the neighorhood of $50 per wheel.

    thanks man, anyone else have an idea? id like to hear from multiple people just to make my confidence better.
    i am aware that i may rub on the UCA and the fenders at a full turn, but i can deal with this for a while.
    thanks Dustin03 for your input

    Your gonna rub pretty bad. I dont think the tires will even fit. The clearance between the UCA and the tires when not turned will be close to 1/32", if not touching.

    thanks chris4x4. so if i get the new procomp wheels. with the 4.5 BS, would there be any rubbing? what is the BS on my stock wheels?
    they are the crappy stock steel wheels.
    i would like wider tires. right now i have 165/75R16, what would be an equivilant maybe a little taller but 1-1.5 inch wider tire. i would really like up to 12" wide.

    IIRC, the stock bs for your truck is 4.5". You may want to mesure just to be sure. the BS can be found by mesuring the distance from the back of the lug mounting surface to the rear lip of the wheel.

    You can put them on stock wheels but your gonna need wheel spacers to push the wheel out a bit. When you get wheels get a 4 BS and itll work great

    Do you wheel often?


    I'm thinking maybe get a nice set of ATs now (Revos, Terra Grapplers, etc) and then save more money up and get a dedicated MT setup.

    This would keep down wear on your MT's from everyday driving, and you'll have better tires whenever you go wheeling.

    You'll also have to watch your tire pressure....

    The width of the rim (16x7") versus the width of the tire (11.2" - 285/75R16)

    The recommended tire pressure might be too high - thus causing uneven tire wear (over time). You'll have to do some chalk tests to check tire pressure for even tire wear.
