    I just bought a 2011 DC 4x4 LB. It has 245/75/16 dunlop at20 grandtrek all season radialson it and they seem to be very poor tires. I would like to replace these with 265/75/16 Firestone Destination AT. I talked to the toyota dealership and they said that I might have warranty issues. I believe that the warranty would be ok with 265/70/16. Does anyone have experience with this issue? Thanks

    I assume you're talking about warranty issues with the truck by running new tires? If so, they're feeding you a line.

    Forget the dealer, they sound like they are feeding your typical dealer BS. Just make sure wherever you are looking at getting the tires done that they will install them on your truck. Around here at least Costco and Sears will not put anything other than the original size on, strictly for liability reasons.

    The issue is tires of a size other than those that came on it. I think that a TRD might come stock with 265/70/16 and that would probably be ok warranty wise. But I wanted a taller tire. Thanks for your replies.

    I think you would be fine running the 75's.

    tires won't void any warranties bud...now suspension stuff is another story. Throw some 265/75/16s on there and call it a day...nothing bad will come of it :)
