    I have a 07 4wd Taco, I want to beef up the tires but I need some input from the experience. So, can I put on 265/70/17 or 265/75/17 with out rubbing or any mods to the wheel well? I don't have a lift and don't plan on it. Iam thinking of going with either BFG A/T, Dick Cepek F-C ll, or a Pro Comp. If you have any advice on any of these tires either good or bad, please tell me. Also, I haven't seen much on here with Taco's w/out lifts and tire mods like the way I would like to do, if you have a pic... I'd like to see it. Thk you.

    Welcome to Tacoma World!!
    I ran 265/75/16's on my 2000 Tacoma with no issues, and no lift. IMHO, I think the Nitto Terra Grapplers are much better tires than the ones you listed. :)

    Sport rims= go with a 265/70/17, they will fit and look great
    16" go with 265/75/16 good!

    As for tires, check out the general grabber at2's. They are a very high rated all terrain tire on tire rack, and have a better warranty then most. 3 guys I work with have them, Great! check out www.tiredeals4less.com

    I have 265/70R17's on my 08 4x4 DC.

    No rubbing or clearance problems, but that's the largest tire that will fit without a lift.

    When my wheels are turned, there's only about 3/4" of clearance between the tire and the inner fender skirt.

    About 1" taller depending on the manufacturer and tread design.

    I know this is an old post but why do you have to run a smaller tire on the 17 in rims? Seems like as long as the outside diameter is the same they should fit. Please help me understand this one. thanks

    It's not a smaller tire. Tire diameter = (sidewall height x 2) + wheel diameter. Sidewall height = first number (i.e. 265mm) x second number (i.e. 70%).

    265/75R16 has the same width and essentially the same diameter as 265/70R17. The difference is one has more wheel and one has more tire.

    I have 265/75/16's bfg ko's on American Racing 16x8 Ventura wheels.
    I have heard something very rarely not positive what no damage that I have seen will have to look closer at my front flaps. I will be adding some shim not much room between the rim and caliper made them at work yesterday not on yet need to get some extended thread nuts, studs are none to long.
    The 265/75's were actually cheaper than the 265/70's must be less popular funny the lesser rubber you get the more you pay wish I could run 15" wheels but the brakes are just too big.

    Good way to compare tire sizes.
