    u will be fine w/ the 265/70's. there are/were a few people around driving w/ them on and they had no issues. anything bigger than that with or without lift and u might start running into rubbing issues

    What about me I have 16 in steel rims from a 04 tacoma and 275/70/16. on my 2010 trd sport. Does it help that i have 16 in rims? Can I get away with this without rubbing? Havn't noticed any rubbing except when there in ice build up in well. Please let me know if I'm hurting my truck! I don't plan on keeping them on after april 15th. but will take off if I think they are messing things up!

    You won't rub with 265/75s. Its not the height that you have to worry about its the width...
