    Can I put 17" tires on my stock 16" wheels on 2017 Tacoma off road? Or do I need to upgrade the rims as well? Thanks!

    You can put them on. You will struggle getting them to air up past 0 psi.

    17” tires :confused:

    Regardless of size, if you look on the manufacturer of the tire’s website, it’ll usually specify what the recommended wheel size for that particular tire size is.

    No. You cannot. Tires for 16 inch wheels MUST end with R16 (example 265/75 R16)

    R17 are only for 17 inch wheels

    And so on..... make sense?

    The equivalent size to those would be a 265/75/16 though if you want to keep your 16" wheels.

    Sweet got it. I haven't swapped wheels on a vehicle before so figured I'd just go ahead and ask the idiot question. I'll prob just run stock for a while though. Thx again.
