    Hi i am new to this site. I live on Cape Cod and i just got my new 2011 Tacoma Double Cab. I bought rims on ebay but i need help picking out tires. Here is the link to the rims they are 17 x 7

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyo...Accessories&hash=item5ae2060453#ht_744wt_1167

    My first question is what is the biggest tires i can put on without any rubbing ? and my second is i want to put 31 inch tires on and if they will not fit what lift would i have to put in for there to be no rubbing ?

    Thnx for any help, Ben

    Congrats on the new truck. Is it 2 or 4 wheel drive? What size are your stock wheels and tires?

    Your truck came with 31's. Either 265.65.17 if a trd sport, 265/75/16 if a trd offroad, or 245/75/16 if a sr5 or base model.

    So you'll have absolutely no issues running a 31. Lots of folks on here step up to 32's 265/70/17 in your case. No issues there either.

    It's really up to you, everyone is going to tell you to get the tire they have :laugh:

    Popular choices on this site include BFG A/T's, Goodyear Duratracs, NItto Terra Graplers, Hankook Dynapro AT-m's.

    KPT makes a great suggestion with the 265/70R17. There are a lot of great options in this size. If you are looking for lot of bang for your buck I'd recommend the Falken Rocky Mountains, this is a great tire for your money. I've ran these off-road in 7 states in everything from highway, gravel, dirt, mud, sand, snow and slick rock, with the exception of deep mud they have done excellent for me.

    If you want something a little more aggressive, the Duratrac may be a great choice for you. This is an excellent tire. Many people consider this tire a hybrid AT/MA. This tire is also winter rated.

    Here's a tire size calculator you can use to estimate tire size differences: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/brochure/info/tmpInfoTireMath.jsp

    The 265/70R17 will be best for a 7" wide wheel.

    You will need a 3" lift, wheels with approx 4.5" backspacing, and will need to trim your fender well plastic, and possibly chop your cab mounts, to run the 285's.
