    Hello All,

    The wheels on my truck are the factory/OEM 16" steel wheels. They have P245/75/R16 tires on them.

    Can I safely put P265/75/R16 tires on them?

    Looking at the tire size calculator the size difference on the width is about .78" difference.

    I don't think there will be any rubbing issues, would there?

    I have a '09 DCLB 4x2 Prerunnner.


    TIA

    Just lay a lot of nails in front of your driveway! :D


    Here's the tires in the size you want on my truck, I have a 2.5 inch lift. You'll still be fine without the lift, but this size tire looks great on the Tacoma. :D

    Looks excellent!

    Another benefit may be it will help get my speedo in sync with reality. The local cops have some of those radar stations setup that display your speed as you go by. I noticed on the one I go by routinely it says I am going 24-25 and the speedo reads 26-27.

    What do you think?

    Thanks again.
