    All of the 2nd gen and forward Tacomas are heavy enough to run the beefiest of the 255 tires. Radial tires aired down enough are gonna flex and grip well with our rigs! Now a heavy bias ply tire under a suzuki samurai is a different story. The Toyo 255’s are the heaviest of the bumch here and they flexed and formed great under my 2018 access cab. Ran them on a much lighter 2dr jk for much more severe wheeling than the Tacoma would ever do and they worked wonderfully.

    Have had the 255/85R16 Dick Cepek Extreme Country tires on 3rd gen 16” Toyota TRD wheels for a while and they have been very good so far. Just a few updated pictures of the truck. Lost some go with the bigger wheels but will be re-gearing next year.

    Finally got the right combo, 235/85 R16 Toyo ATll on stock 16x7” OEM spare steelies, rides better and seems to wear better than the 16x8” Tundra steelies...

    How do you like your nexen tires? Are they the AT or MT’s? I was thinking of switching to nexens.

    They are A/Ts. I love them, they are light, quiet, aggressive enough and grip very well.

    Loving this thread.

    Can we talk about tires brands that flex/conform when aired down?

    I’ve heard some brand/loads dont really deform when deflated because they’re so tough (too tough).

    I do, it fits good under my 1st gen with the rearmost tabs on the tire holder bent out. Shouldn’t be a problem on your 2nd gen.
