    Thats gonna look awesome, I didn't notice you where switching to 255s (don't you currently got 285s??).

    Looking forward to the installed pics.

    Oh, them in the pics are just KMs, which from what I read will soon be discontinued. :(

    I think if you mount the tires in the pic you will only need to remove the front mud flaps.
    Timmer What gear would you recommend? A 4.0?

    im not going from a bfg mt to a bfg mt...switching brands and sizes...

    as far as fitment of the new tires...theyll fit...theyre tall and skinny...i dont have any flaps and i dont drive a new tacoma with the squared off fenders :D

    i'm not really into regear territory either as i have 4.56 gears already in my truck and those should handle these 255/85s just fine

    lucky for me i already lost all my mud flaps!
