    Should be able to get a 265/75 with no problem. Maybe some minor rubbing.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Tons of threads with this question but, yes a 265/75R16 is the max size, or an equivalent like a 265/70R17, etc. with aftermarket wheels you may have to either trim or remove your mudflaps to keep from rubbing depending on the backspace/offset, on a stock wheel i dont think there's an issue with it.

    I installed BFG A/T KO tires 265/70/17's on MotoMetal 955's and there is a lot of rubbing. I'm gonna remove the mud flaps, at least until I install Bilstein 5100's.

    Well, I removed the mud flaps. No dice. Still rubs quite a bit. I guess I'm gonna have to take it easy until I can get a couple of Bilstein 5100's installed up front.

    Might be your backspacing that's causing the rubbing. Do you know what it is? Wheel spacers might help depending on what the backspacing already is.

    My friend has TRD Sport with BFG TA KO 265/70/17 on stock 17 x 7.5" alloys. Really fills the wheel well, no rubbing of any kind.
