    My 2012 std cab base model 5 lug originally came from the factory with 215/70 tires on 15x6 rims.

    I found that I could go to 235/60 tires on 16x7 rims while keeping the speedometer error down to less than 1%. The difference in circumference is only 3/4" .:)

    The Enkei alloy wheels are arriving next week.

    I also discovered that you can run passenger car tires on 5 lugs that you can't on 6 because the safety load ratings are lower. So I'm running fuel efficient rated Yokohama YK 580's. They're warranted for 60,000 miles.

    Treadwear 580
    Traction A
    Temperature A.

    That's true. :)
    I live in a rural area that has a potential for seasonal flooding, so I need some decent ground clearance. The Enkei Compe wheels arrive tomorrow. I'll post pics when they're on.
