    I had 265/75R16's on a stock 02 tacoma with no rubbing. On a side note, 31x10.5x15 on the same truck rubbed a little and I had to take my front mud flaps off.

    So 265/70R16's are stock. I had 265/75R16's installed not to long after I got the truck. I believe if you any larger than that with a stock tacoma, you will need to do a little trimming.

    Nope...with a 2.5" lift, you could probably get away with 285/75R16's (~ 33" tire).

    smart. just remember.. upsizing a tire and not re-gearing means more strain on your drivetrain. that isnt good... leads to blown trannys and all sorts of other fun stuff.

    no... rim size doesnt matter...no idea why he would step down to a 16 unless he was going to actually use it in the dirt more, but ok lol.

    as for upsizing tires... the simplest way i can word it is like this...

    your rear end is geared for the best mix of both worlds from the factory with a specific size tire in mind. they gear it for the amount of torque and top end you will need to drive it while also trying to achieve the best gas milage. when you step up to a bigger tire, you are throwing in (for lack of better words) more rotating mass. basically it takes that tire longer to complete one full revolution than the stock size did. so you would have to regear in order to get it back to that correct turn ratio of 1 tire turn per x amount of pinion gear turns. hope that is easy enough to understand.

    and incorrect there buddy steve-o. 16's to alot of tire manufactures are considered a odd ball rim size. in some cases it is actually more expensive to get a tire with a 16 inch wheel hole then it is for the same size tire with a 17 inch wheel hole.

    You wont need to re gear with a 265/75/16 wheel and tire, and they should fit just fine. In a 17" wheel, look for a 265/70/17.
