    Not exactly sure where to post this question, but this thread seems somewhat appropriate.

    Will 285's clear the rear wells without cutting? Im not afraid to hack it up, just preparing myself for what needs to be done. Thanks in advance.

    with my understanding they will. the fronts is where you have clearance issues with turning. Someone will be along who knows more that I.

    He got the white outlined letters for $142 each 265/75/16. Could have gotten blackwall for like $120

    Prices were good, until I saw the shipping costs...

    I've been doing a lot of research since I posted the question here and I'm thinking that I'll order mine through Discount Tire Direct - pretty sure I'm gonna go for something a little more aggressive like the DynaPro MTs which I can get for $888 shipped.

    Nitto makes nice looking tires. If you need or want an aggressive tire, that is one.

    Do you think the 32's would be to big and or rub with only a 3 in lift?

    I am not sure about the S/Ts but I owned a set of Zeons that I loved and they wore VERY well. Overall Cooper is supposed to make a great tire for the money.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Ran the ST's in 265/70/17 before on my 07 Tacoma. They were a pretty good tire, a decently aggressive All terrain style tread. Probably not up to the performance and quietness of some of the newest tire designs out there but they ran good and netted about 40k miles before I retired them at 20% tread.

    Cool, I ask because it's one of a few aggresive looking AT's that come in the 255/85R16 option.

    Had the zeons on my other truck as well and loved them. Have the at3's on this one they are a great tire as well. I have had very good luck with cooper tires.
