    getting new tires for my 1st gen dcab prerunner

    so im pretty sure 265/75/16 is as big as i can go with no lift but what is the exact size of 265/75/16 !!!!!

    i hear some guys say its a 30in tire, some say 31in tire and Ive even heard 32in tire !!! is anyone positive on this???

    i do believe, to be exact, its a 31.6in tire. is that right??

    what is the next size right above 265/75/16?? I have no lift and will be using the stock 16in rims and want to get the biggest tire possible. Ill remove my mudflaps if i have to. right now i have 265/75/16 duellers-bald

    a 265/75 is like a big 31 but concidered a 32 in the metric world. Next up would be a 285/75 which is a large 32 which is concidered a 33 in the metric world :)

    With 285s you would need a lift at least 2.5", wheel spacers or new wheels with 4.5" of back spacing and new UCAs if you went above 2.5" with your lift to fix any alignment issues you may have :)


    Hope this helps

    helped alot!! thanks. I will be getting the 265/75's for sure. I cant do a lift right now :eek: but maybe down the road.

    is the 265/75/16, 10.5in wide or 11.5in wide? i think the 11.5's would look better

    You will rub with the 11.5s if you have stock wheels because they aren't back spaced enough...you"ll have to get 1.25" wheel spacers to avoid it or more back spaced wheels, 4.5" is ideal for most applications...but thats with the 285s so you don't have to worry. Its the 265s that are a little over 10" wide :)

    these are 267/75/16 no lift, no rubbing at all!
    You just have to make sure the backspacing on the rim fits with the tire, mines -6

    265/75/16s will fit with stock wheels...I ran that size with my old 1st gen for quite a while with no issues

    Correct me if I'm wrong but stock 16x7 wheels have 4.5" bs already. I had 16x8 alloys that had 4.5" bs and ran 265 75 r16 with small lift no rubbing. Just got 4" bs wheels so I can step up too 285's and not have as much rub as with 4.5" bs.

    265 75 r16 u will be fine :)

    Much like the rest of us I, I have done extensive research on what new tires I will be purchasing in the near future. I found this site a while back and it has an incredible Size Calculator. You input the "stock" size, then you have the option to add up to four (4) separate tire sizes. It then shows you a side by side comparison on the differences in overall diameter of your choices.

    http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp

    Check it out, it's been a very informative tool for me so far, and I thought I would share it with my TW brothers and sisters.

    i know alot guys ask what is the largest size is for stock wheels but i have a 2 1/2" lift and my wheels are 16x8 (which is an inch wider than stock) and 4" back spacing. i really would like to know if i can go with a 285/75r16 without issue. my current tires are 265/70r16 but it seems like the sidewall has shrunk due to my new wheels being wider. any info would be greatly appreciated... any smart ass comments will not be appreciated. i already tryed the search button which is how i found this old post thx



    this is how it sits currently

    yup, factory TRD wheels are 4.5" backspacing.


    OP, 265/75/16 is roughly a 32x10.5x16.


    taquito, the "70" in 265/70/16 is the height of the sidewall compared to the width of the tire (the 265, in mm)

    a 265/70/16 tire is 265mm wide, or roughly 10.5 in. 70% of 10.5 is ~7.4. This means the sidewall is 7.4 in tall. Double that, add the wheel diameter, and you get the height of the tire (~31")

    Your 285/75/16s were about 11in wide, so the sidewall height was around 8.3in

    So your sayin 285/75/16 should fit on 2.5 lift with 16x8 4" backspacing wheels?

    You can get 35s to fit on no lift.

    A lot of people run 33x11 on a 2-3in lift. You might have to massage some stuff in the fenders, but not much.
