    They are 16x7.5 so they aren't very wide. You can fit 31" or 33" tires. With the tacoma if you go 33" you'll most likely need at least a 3" lift. I have the toytec ultimate lift kit with 33"s on 17x9 rims. See what you think. do you 4 wheel alot?

    I've just got 265s but from what I've heard you're gonna need a 3" front and 2" rear to run 285s. Something like the Old Man Emu kit. You'll probably also have to use wheel spacers and/or trim under the wheel wells. Someone may correct me though...good luck, 285s definitely look better than 265s IMO
