    265s are about as big as you can run with no lift on a prerunner and 4x4

    I daily drove my tacoma. I'm running Michelin defenders ms. Theybare super quiet and last forever. Definitely not an off road tire. I'm back down south but they worked good enough in snow when I was Wisconsin as well

    too many variables to consider with your post. also don't listen to 2nd and 3rd Genners :D

    if you want a standard, stick with your current rims, and get a highway tire with good treadwear (michelin, cooper, etc).

    if you plan to do any gravel or dirt roads you can adjust accordingly. stock tire size would be 265/70-16 or you could get the 245/75-16 which is popular and same size diameter.
