    Well my stock crappy Dunlops are nearly finished with about over 44k on them & I'm at the current stock size of 245/75-16 and would like to go larger.

    I don't plan on a lift anytime soon and most of my driving is highway but like the looks of the aggresive tire.

    Should I go with 265/70-16 or jump up to 265/75-16.

    Looking at Firestone Dest. AT, Toyo Open Country AT and Yokohama Geolander AT-S for tires.

    Any opinions?

    I'd go with a 265/75/16... But it's all your opinion. The 265/75 is the largest you can go stock.

    Take a look at the Dueler Revo's and Revo 2's. Those seem to be an awesome tire, but I'm speaking from word of mouth.

    Hmmm...Interesting, I thought the TRD package came with Bilstein HD shocks, at least my window sticker says so.

    Back on topic, I'd go with the Bridgestone AT Revo 2's as well. I got a set put on last month and love them; especially over the stock BFG Rugged Fails.

    i believe the 265/75's are cheaper than stock size so i'd go with the 265/75's. honestly i'd check into the bridgestone revo 2's or maybe some bfg a/t if you want to.

    Guess I'll have to look into the Revo's. I checked on Tirerack and the larger size is cheaper, $144 for 265/70 vs $133 for the 265/75, interesting.

    I have the SR5 model and didn't even think about having to upgrade the shocks/struts. However, I was wanting to get the off-road Bilsteins.

    why not just get the bilstein 5100's? they give a much better ride quality and you can adjust them for a lift in the future if you want. you can get they for around $282 from downsouthmotorsports
