    I just saw a tacoma at my work, with 265/75/16. The problem is it wasn't lifted any. It was sitting stock. That's the problem. I was told those tires would be fine with a 3inch lift. But if those tires fit on a stock yota than won't I need 285's? This is what I heard, 285's will require spacers and fender trimming and would still rub if I turn sharp. I want the tall tire look with the lesser amount of money spent. I'm not the only one huh? Any advice would help so much. I'm torn between the two.

    I'm kind of confused by your question. If the 265/75's fit on a stock truck (which they do), then of course they would fit a lifted truck.

    What do you mean by you "needing" 285's, and the 265's fitting is a "problem".

    Are you wanting the most aggressive look, and are worried that 265's with a 3 inch lift will look too small? If that's the case, it wasn't clear from your question.

    Yep, people are right when they say that 285's will rub with a 3" lift. But if you have the correct backspacing on your wheels, like a 4.5", then you will only need to do some fender trimming and you should be fine. The 265's will fit without trimming, thats all people mean by, "they fit better"

    More a Wheels and Tires question.

    With a 3 inch lift you can get either 265 or 285s under there. You can also consider staying with 265's and upping the aspect ratio. The first number indicates how WIDE the tread is...the SECOND indicates the sidewall height.

    If you go larger than like a 31 inch total wheel/tire you'll need the lift...IIRC. 3 inch lift will fit you 33's with minor rubbing depending on the backspace and what not.

    I have 265/75/16 Duratracs on my stock suspension 4x4 no rubbing at all.

    Do you have a lift already?

    Sorry guys for the confusing question. I'm buying a 3inch lift in a couple weeks and was told 265's would fit with no problems. But I just saw them on a stock toyota this morning. So I believe I'll need a bigger tire for the lift. Like a 285, but just wondering if they are worth the trouble for spacers and trimming. There going on my stock trd 16's.

    Just to throw it out there, you could get some 255/85/16s if you want the height and no spacers.

    if your using the stock trd wheels you will have a lot of rubbing issues with 285 from what ive heard, but you can stay with a 265 but just go taller with no rubbing issues

    Im in the same boat as you! I had my 265/75/16's on my stock tacoma and they only rubbed on full turn and only when i hit a bump. I really want 285's because they just look so much better!
