    I have an '06 PreRunner, Double Cab, sitting on stock suspension with the stock 16" alloy wheels. SO...it's time to get new tires!! What better time to perform an upgrade?

    What I am wanting to do is put a bigger, wider, AT tire on black steelies. Given that, my question is twofold: What size rims should I get (will an upgrade to 17" be more trouble than it's worth)? And what size tires can I fit?

    I have done a fair amount of research on this site and others, and can't find a straight answer. In regards to the biggest tires that can be used, I've seen 265/75/16, 32" (what width?), 33", the same size have right now, and on and on and on. I really don't want to go to a 17" wheel, but with all of my internet searching, I haven't been able to find a good looking set of 16" wheels.

    OH...I suppose I should fill you all in on my level of off-road activity. I don't do much running in the mud, due to my lack of a 4WD, and lack of a lift (on top of the street rubber on the wheels!), but I do a little trail riding, mostly simple stuff. Nothing real hard core. Truth be told, I just like the beefier look. I had a '00 single cab 4WD, and ran 31" x 10.50's on it, and LOVED it. Really wanting to get that same kind of stance on my '06.

    Thanks ahead of time for the help, and I look forward to hearing from y'all.

    wat?
    get whatever size rim in an 8" width and either a 265/75/16 or 265/70/17 since you are on stock suspension. thats the largest size tire you can do w/o hitting stuff

    If you do a few trails, stick with the 16" rims. The more tire sidewall between obstacles and rim the more protection

    And so it shall be. Right now it's a showdown between ProComp Xtreme Alloys Series 8069, and XD Series XD122.

    I'll wrap them in 265/75/16 rubber. I'll post pics when I get it put together. Thanks for the help, guys!!
