    I had an epiphany this morning when I walked out in my driveway, the 265/70R16 tires on the Tacoma will fit to replace the 255/70R16 tires on my 2000 Ford Expedition. The Expedition tires are load index 111, Taco tires are 112, so that also works.

    My question, will a 265/75R16 fit in the spare tire position under the bed on the Tacoma? I could use all 5 of the 265/70R16 taco tires on the Ford (The spare is original from 2000) but that would require replacing the Tacoma spare also. I don’t think I’d try and do a 5 tire rotation on the Tacoma, so it’s not imperative that I have a matching spare, but if it fits I’ll spend the money.

    Thanks. I did some searching and found another thread about the larger spare fitting, too.

    Finally got Wrangler AT 265 75 16’s (42 lbs, non E) which look perfect size to me on my ‘10 Prerunner 4 cyl 5spd. I notice almost no rolling or acceleration slowness or difference btw these & the Michelin Ltx At2 265 70 16, (39lbs) which always looked too small, but they lasted well over 120k mls. The speedometer is now almost exactly correct too, but I’ve yet to see how the 1” taller tire does climbing up steeper off-road..will post when I do. 3823F8ED-2370-4490-A327-64B002926D8B.jpgB076351F-285D-4069-94B3-5E00E6B325B6.jpg

    Looks Nice! I am wanting to do the same. I dont want to screw the suspension when I love the truck already. I am weary tho, bc I have seen a few people say they get some slight rubbing with 265/75/16s.. You experienced any? Take it offroad much?

    sorry to resurrect an old post, but I’m thinking of getting the Falken MTs or Yokohama Geo MTs for next set...trying to decide between 265/75 and 255/85...how do you like the Falkens? They’re pretty heavy, how did the trans handle them? Any feedback would be great! Thanks!

    not tire related (sorry) but what kind of bumper/bar is that?


    Tire related: I just got a 2021 SR5, and am thinking that I will replace the tires and wheels this summer. After looking at much of this thread, I am convinced that the 265 width will be perfect for what I want - which is to NOT have to do a bunch lifting and alteration right away. So the question is: which tire? I have narrowed that down to:

    Dick Cepek Trail Country EXP
    Cooper AT3 4s'
    Hankook Dynapro AT2's
    BFGoodrich All Terrain TA's

    I will be doing about 70% regular road and about 30% gravel/fire road/farm and field on vacation. Not getting into rock climbing/crawling or "upper level" off roading....yet(?) Also want a tire that works well in snow, and slush...also will be pulling a tear drop trailer on our summer adventures, so I am thinking that the SL or E load rating will be fine...

    My opinion would be to skip the E rated tires on a truck this light. I know plenty of guys run them, but they are heavy and rode rough when I had them on a Titan that's heavier.

    The Hankook Dynapro AT2 in 265/75R16 are on sale from Amazon for $133 each right now, Discount tire should match it.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M75V6LZ/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    Discount has a $100 instant rebate off the Cooper AT3 4S right now, makes them $140 each.

    Are most of you guys keeping the stock spare tire, or are you getting a matching size spare?

    I think the matching size spare is a good idea to match the size, but with the non matching wheel and the inability to program a fifth TPMS I don't know if it will ever touch the ground in the 39K of my lease.

    I would get a matching spare I think...in that case, would I also have to get a matching wheel? I plan on getting the American Racing Outlaw 2's...

    I don't plan on getting wheels any bigger than I already have...

    when upgrading to a bigger tire, do we need to have our driving ability recalibrated? i apologize if that doesn't make sense.

    Is English a second language for you? I'll try to answer appropriately.

    You shouldn't have to drive differently, and you shouldn't need to recalibrate your VSC. If you also get an alignment, which many people do, you should recalibrate your VSC. Your driving should not really change after any of these situations though.

    no sir. i couldn't come up with the right words to say on this topic. i meant to say if there was a reset needed on the engine/transmission to learn your driving with 265's?
