    Ok, sorry if this has been asked already, has anyone put 255/85/16 on a completely stock SR 4x4? Just curious about rubbing issues on said setup. Thanks!

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    You should be fine. For the suspension, the only thing Toyota changed between trim level's is the shocks.

    Is this size only available in mud terrain? Any all terrain winter rated sizes from reputable brands? Thanks!

    The Mastercraft Courser CXT claims to bridge the gap between MT and AT, mine are M+S rated, and handle fantastically in the snow and rain, they've got great siping on top of the mud terrain sized tread lugs. Mastercraft is a division of Cooper, so there's your reputable brand link. They are loud, and ride like any E-Rated tire (read, poorly over 30psi) but I really like them overall.

    Thanks. Def worth looking into on my next set of tires. I like the idea of skinny tires on our winter roads up here. Curious how noticeable mpg and power loss were for you.

    Power loss was about 5% ish, definitely there but not bad. If anything I've gained MPG tho, my commute is long cruising sections at 60MPH, and my MPG readout didn't change much but I know it's underreporting because I never recalibrated the speedo. I'd figure I gained 5-10% MPG cruising at 60mph, and lost a bit at lower speeds. This is in a stick, I'd figure the auto trans would probably see bigger gains.

    Edit: Think of it this way, you've basically regeared to a taller gear like a 3.73 by going taller on the tires. "Rubber overdrive"

    So saw an older guy with a really nice tacoma, lifted 3 inches with 265 70 17, or something. I told him that I could run a 33 on stock tires, on stock suspension, he laughed in my face and told me to run my finger between the tire and the uca, it was damn near touching. But no matter how much I explained the 255 85 16s he wouldnt buy it. Cant wait til I need new tires.

    It's really great that these tires fit the way they do, I proselytize them everywhere I go.

    Yeah, he was really skeptical. I can't remember what size tires he was running, but they were maybe a quarter inch from the UCA. On stock Sport wheels.

    Considering the Coopers to replace the stock Goodyears on my ‘17 OR.
    The Goodyears have been horrible in wet conditions and hydroplane easily.

    For those of you that have had the Coopers for a while, how’s roadnoise after putting on some mileage (compared to stock) and are you still happy with them in wet conditions?

    Thanks.

    My current setup is Cooper ST Maxx's in 255/85r16 on stock OR suspension/wheels. I've been very pleased with the tires so far, but I'm looking at swapping suspension for the ADS extended travel with resis (no clickers). Has anyone changed UCAs and kept the stock wheels with 255/85r16? If so did you need to add spacers to avoid rubbing the UCA?

    JBA specifically calls out a more negative offset required to run 255/85/16 with their UCAs. I haven't found anything on any other UCAs that would confirm if the stock OR wheels would work or not. I was planning on going with SPC, but would consider others (TC, Icon , etc.) if I could avoid buying new wheels.

    I've done some searching and found one post confirming that the JBAs did rub with this wheel/tire setup, but haven't found anything specific on the other brands. I also reached out to Headstrong Off-road (where I plan to buy from). Marie was quick to respond but wasn't sure if the SPC would work for this setup.

    I have the ST Maxx's in 255/85/16. I only have a few thousand miles on mine. From my experience so far, they're loud enough to notice with the windows up and the stereo off. The noise is a little more noticeable in turns for me. The sound kind of reminds me of a light rail train (specifically BART) from a long distance off. I don't find them annoying or excessive, but they're definitely louder than I remember the stock tires being.

    As far as wet performance, I haven't had any complaints. Bear in mind that I haven't had a lot of experience with them, and I haven't had to perform any emergency braking in the rain.

    So this 40% on Thursday has me thinking about getting the TRD beadlock rims.

    The rims are 16x7.5 10mm offset
    Is anyone smarter than me that can confirm or deny these will work with 255/85r16s and stock suspension

    @bestcoast91 I’m interested in your question as well. Keep us posted if you find a UCA that can would with the stock rims and the 255s

    Will do! I reached out to SPC and TC for feedback as well. Hopefully they'll have something more definitive soon.
