    My FJ 16 x 7.5 TRD wheels just arrived today and they are sweet lookin'.:)
    I plan to put them on my '10 Double Cab long bed Sport.

    How about some advice on which brand tires I should wrap them in? From my understanding the largest tire I can put on the stock suspension is 265/75R16.

    I do not plan to alter the lift quite yet and I certainly don't want any rubbing. I am looking for an A/T tire that has a smooth ride and an aggressive look. Summer months I will be mainly on road with minimal off-road. But in the winter I'll be up in the sierras battling the sierra cement.

    Thanks TW

    as soon as you get your new tires, chances are you will probably want to lift it sooner than you anticipate. then you'll want 33's. but for some other advice. the bfg km2's (ride like an a/t) are certainly a favorite around here. and they come in your size. firestone destinations are probably the best buy
