    I own a 01 Prerunner, and will be needing new tires soon. I bought the truck used from the original owner who had elected to install Definity Dakota AT 265/70R-16.

    I like the tread pattern of BFG AT's and will likely stick with something along those lines, but im curious to know if i can go a little bigger without having to increase the lift height. Currently, it's just the stock Prerunner height (2 inch lift?)

    Any help for the new guy??

    "Free Bump" refers to getting your post to show up at the top of the main page, even thou I didn't have an answer to your original post.

    Should I stick with the 265, or can I go bigger? Don't have the time or money right now to lift the truck for anymore clearance, but I also don't want to deal with rubbing from tires that are too big. Just looking for a hoping for a little more aggressive look without too much effort for now.

    I went one inch taller, to a 265/75-16... Fits perfect and no rubbing at all (stock truck)... plus the speedometer is now accurate!

    I used to run the Pep Boys Dakota tires... on my 2001 Tacoma, after the BFG's wore out... they were so cheap, I couldn't resist (back then ~$85). They only lasted 25,000 miles, but because they were a 50,000 mile tire, I got new ones for half price!
