    I am getting new tires. Not exactly sure which ones yet but getting closer to a decision. Analysis Paralysis strikes again...lol

    I am currently running 265/65/17's on my 09 tacaoma 4 door 4wd shortbed....

    Should I get the same size or something different like 265/70/17's???

    Driving will be dirt roads and highway...

    Thanks

    Steve

    I went with P265/70/17 in a DynaPro ATM.
    Haven't run them yet but the tire looks very good with an open tread design that should shed gravel well. I hate picking up rocks in tight tread designs.
    It also has a center rib which should help to keep noise down.

    It's a 38 lb tire which should be easy on my 2.7
    The only other choice for me was 255/75/17 which is a little larger diameter and a little more weight.

    OP, on this page go up to the header and float your mouse pointer over "Mods & Tutorials" then click on Tire Calculator at the bottom of the drop-down.
    Useful tool when changing tire sizes.

    i have a 1st gen and i picked up a set of 265/70/17 a few months ago and now i wish i would have waited and gotten 285/70/17 instead. if you don't plan to lift the truck much, get 265/70/17. it looks great on a stock height tacoma.
