    I'm sure this question has been asked a million times already so I apologize in advance, but I'm new to Toyota trucks. I just bought my first Tacoma last week; I'm pretty excited about it. Only thing is, I'm essentially at ground zero with my "taco knowledge" so I'm trying to learn as much as I can.

    Anyways, I have a new 4x4 Double Cab with TRD Off-Road package. The stock tires are pretty decent but at some point I'm gonna have to upgrade. I'm looking to either put 265/75/R16's or 275/70/R16's. Would suspension modifications be necessary for either of these sizes? My preference is for the 275 tire since the diameter is closer to the stock size (doesn't throw the gearing off by as much or the speedo) and extra width is always good. :) Thanks!

    Welcome, there is alot of great information around here.
    265/75/16 or 265/70/16 will work on stock suspension, I do believe 275/70/16 will also work since they are roughly 31" and a 32" tire is the largest you can go without a lift. 285's require a lift or trimming.
