    I'm thinking this is the tire size I would like, but the tires I'm interested in doesn't come in this size.

    KO2, X3, or GGAT2

    So here might be a question.... the PRO is already about an inch, inch and a half taller than the OR or Sport... do you all think that this would make a difference. I am really not into how skinny the 255's are...

    Put some 255/85R16 Cooper ST Maxx on my stock '17 TRD OR. No rubbing for now and I think it looks pretty sweet.

    The primary reason they do not rub is because of how skinny they are. If you were to go wider and taller, you'd most likely rub.

    Yeah, we live over in Rockville, but we're about to move like 2 miles away from school so she'll have a shorter drive. If you ever play ultimate Frisbee, we get together at the field behind the school on Tuesdays.

    I just went through this whole thread and def am very interested in this tire size. How do this size perform being skinny. I am doing lots of offroading mostly trails with rock. Curious what tire in this size and how it would be offroad. I want the best perfromance possible. If a 265/75 works better I am not as much concered about the looks. I had my eyes on k02s in that size. I def want this look the taller tire provides though.

    The Cooper ST Maxx are great tires, and worth researching.

    I just got a pair of Dick Cepek Extreme Countries, based on my research, only 1 guy on the internet doesn't like them. It sounded like user error because the way he described how bad they were sounds like an alignment/suspension issue, his review is somewhere on youtube. Also I think Dick Cepek is affiliated with Cooper and their tire quality is similar to Coopers (I read that somewhere but don't recall where). All website reviews seemed to love them, they're also pretty cheap. Otherwise Toyo open countries are top of the line (most expensive). I think your average tried and true most trusted tire is the BFG KM2 tire. And of course, this thread seems to like Cooper! There is a guy in New Jersey selling a set of 5 Coopers https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...coverer-s-t-lt255-85r16.489616/#post-15211569

    I seem to think the cooper discover will be great. I just want them to last, but have a feeling that isn't going to really work out with any tire I go with in the 255/85 size. I keep researching and see. Getting my rtt next week, then think tires are next. I have just over 12k on stock tires now. Not sure if I will sell them or not. I just want to get on some trails but work has been busy.

    I sold my stock tires with comparable miles on CL for $300 IIRC. Only took a week or two to sell.

    Haha I'm in same exact boat as you, except I just got my new tires and getting my RTT sometime within next month or 2, and I have 13,000 miles on my stock tires!

    Nice. If they have the the tent I want back in stock should have the money to go to pick it up next weekend. Only problem is my bed bars still are not done. Been waiting since February for rerentless to get them done.
