    and as far as that goes, you can go up to 265/70/17 on stock suspension without rubbing.

    Thanks, this is helpful. Do you see any benefit in doing this as far as off roading goes? It certainly will look better.

    Also, will this decrease my gas mileage considerably?

    Thanks, a lot!

    For offroading, the 17's would be slightly less desirable than 16's, because there would be more rim and less sidewall.

    If you are staying with he same tire diameter, the new wheels will have very little effect on gas mileage, unless they are considerably heavier than stock.

    Thanks a lot man. Would you just stick with 16's if you were in my shoes?

    Can you recommend a good tire to use? I do some beach and trail off roading. Maybe once or twice/week.

    I was looking at these ATX Chamber wheels. I think they would look sweet on my magnetic grey reg cab. They seem like a good quality wheel too. They are 16X9's.

    The recommended tire size for that wheel is 265/70 R16. Do you think I'll have any rub problems with this set up? Do you know anything about ATX?

    I appreciate your insight and helping me out.

    265/70/16 is the same size as stock. you can get away with up to 265/75/16 without any issues.

    I am happy with the tires I have, Hankook Dynapro ATMs, but there are other good tires out there.

    Ok, I thought stock was 245/75-16?

    Oh I see. I have Sr5. Looks like it has good clearance and space to house 265/70 R16. What do you think?

    They will fit fine, what the other guy was saying was you can fit 265/75/16 with out rubbing issues, that's what I would go with if I was in your shoes.
