    I switched from the factory 265\70\r16 to 265/75/r16 now the dealer is telling me this will void my power train warranty. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
    Thanks

    Hmmm, my sister has an 02 4x4 with the trd offroad package and she bought it with 265/75/16 tires. They are falken tires so they are not the original tires, but don't the 01-04 4x4 trd tacomas come with 265/75/16 tires?

    Per the Magnuson-Moss act, unless the dealer proves that your tires are the cause of a failure in your powertrain, your warranty can not be voided by law. If i were you, I would simply consider using a dealer that wont mess with you like this. That is if it is convenient for you. JMO

    There are also a few threads on the site that speak of the Magnuson-Moss act, and warrenty issues. Use the search feature and I'm sure you'll come up with some good information.
