    Hey guys,

    I searched but couldn't find a good answer. I have a 96 xtra cab 4x4 2.7L all stock suspension. I need to get some tires and due to financial constraints I resorted to craigslist and looked at 2 sets. The first being 235/75/15 Michelin LTX's with 90% tread for $200. Second set is 265/75/15 Toyo Open Country AT's with 1000 miles for $300. Will I have issues in terms of needing to re-gear or rubbing with the 265's on stock suspension and 15 inch rims? What would you choose? I do a fair amount of on road driving but I'm headed to Michigan Tech in the fall so I also need something good in the snow/off road. Thanks for the help, Hayden.

    sorry i should have worded that differently. i did some further searching and saw that the 265's will fit, but will i have any issues with wear and tear or sluggishness on my lil 2.7L?
