    OK, so I am finally getting new wheels/tires. I decided to go with TRD FJ wheels and possibly 285/75/16 tires.

    My question is..... what is everyone doing about their spare tire? I want to keep it in the stock location under the bed.

    What is the max spare tire size that will still fit under the bed?

    You can fit a 285 under there you just have to either cut or bend the metal things under there... Search on here I saw a picture that had arrows about 2 months ago...

    this all depends. if you have the tow package, a 33+ tire wont fit. a 265/75 16 fits no problem.

    Thanks - forgot about the hitch factor. I dont have the complete tow package, but I do have the factory towing hitch, which I assume makes less room for the spare tire.

    I bet they would, go talk to them. Its a great deal even if the dont give an additional discount. I've checked around, no one can touch that price.
