    Hi guys-first post here.
    I have a 2012 4cyl access cab 4x4 and I'm looking to put bigger tires on it. My buddy has 275/70/R17's at the dealership he works at that he can get me for a reasonable price, Does anyone know if these will fit my taco without rubbing? I currently have the stock 265/75/R16's and don't have any plans to raise my truck.

    Thanks for the help!

    Congrats on the new truck, I say they probably fit if not you can do some trimming

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    Whippersnapper: the wheels were take-off's from another car (not sure which car exactly but they look like 4runner rims) so they also come with rims which is a big plus.

    Wolfpack: Thanks for the link to Bob's post and the correction. I actually found Bob's post before but I wasn't sure how the 275/70/R17's compared to 265/70/17. I think they are 1/2" taller but not positive whether this would cause any rubbing.
    I'm reluctant to do any trimming on the new taco...

    those 4x4 mud flaps are a beautiful thing. I'll see if the Toyota dealership will slap them on for me without charging me 80 thousand dollars in labor fees.
