    hey tacoheads..I have 285/70/17 on 17x9 wheels on my 2006 tacoma. I am looking at possibly getting 265/70/17 tires. but I dont know if the look will change in width. does anyone know what changes look wise will I have if I switch tires?
    Thanks
    :confused:

    Thanks for the input. i goofed. I currently have 33/12.5/17. with 3' lift. Im not sure if that equals a 285 or higher, 12.5 equals what?. I dont want to lose width nor height so yes I agree stay away from the 265. the search continues.

    wat?
    12.5=315. i'm running that width in a 35". a 285 is one inch narrower than what you are currently running. 285/70/17s are made by a lot of different manufacturers and the most common size for taco's w/ a 3" lift (in 17")

    I wouldn't put the 265/70/17's on a 17x9" wheel. It'll look stretched. They can look good though on a wheel with 4.5" bs.
