    I have a 1995 tacoma with the 31/10.5/15 tires on factory alloys. I have bought a set of the 17x7.5 inch TRD sport wheels off a 2009 tacoma. I've ordered a set of four the 1.25 inch spidertrax spacers to compensate for the difference in backspacing and rim width. Right now I've foud a great deal on a set of 4 Goodyear Silent Armor tires in size 255/75/17. According to the tire calculator, these are 1.08 inches taller and 0.47 inches more narrow. Can I run these on my tacoma without a lift?

    I'd like to order these tires tonight before they go off sale.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You should be OK. Any rubbing you have will be minimal, if any.
