    I have an 07 tacoma TRD offrd pkg 4x4 with original bf goodrich rugged trail 265/70R/16 on stock alloy rims. I want to replace them with goodyear wrangler dynatrac which comes in 265/75R/16. My tire dealer says tire will "balloon out" if I install 265/75R/16 on stock rims. I dont see any difference other than the diameter. Will 265/75R/16 fit ok on stock rims?Does anyone have any experience with goodyear wrangler dynatrac?

    Duratracs? Shouldn't be a problem on a 7" wide wheels. The tires has the same width just about ~1" taller.

    No, they will not balloon anymore than 265/70/16. Your tire guy is smoking crack.

    i have 265/75/16 coopers and there is no balloon. the only difference is the diameter...maybe he's used to the types of balloons that you use to make balloon animals?

    I have the 265/75/R16 duratracs and they definitely are a little wider maybe just due to the tread. At full turn there is a slight rub on the uca's

    You can see here the differences between the two tire sizes.

    I did a little more research. According to the manuf specs the duratrac in 265/75R/16 C has a rim width range of 7-8" and a measured or standard rim width of 7.5". The OEM Goodrich Rug Trail T/A in 265/70R/16 has a rim width range of 7-9" and a standard rim width of 8".

    If the TRD offrd pkg rims are 16x7 then the duratrac in 265/75R/16 should actually fit the 7" wide rims better than the OEM tire or at most the cross section width will be decreased by 2/10" (not increased:D) by mounting it on a 7" rim. (I read a 1/2" change in rim width causes a 2/10" change in cross section width).

    It also seems that the manuf is mounting the OEM tire on the narrowest possible rim which is decreasing the cross section width by almost 1/2".

    I'm going with the duratrac on the OEM rims and a new tire guy.:)

    Update: bought a set of the 265/75/16 C Duratracs from Tirerack and they fit the 16" OEM alloy rims, no problems. The tire pressure is different so the TPMS warning light stays on. Rather than pay the dealer to reset it I think I'll put a :) sticker over the light and ignore it. They ride better than the long trails and perform well in sand and mud. On the street they make a low hum. If you are looking for tire thats half way between an AT and an MT this is it.
