    Hey guys, I have a 07 Tacoma access cab 4x4, stock wheel size is 245/75/16, just wondering if I can put on larger tire size like 17", any advice on this, I really like the rims that come on the TRD, but I think they are 17" rims?

    Yes you can. I did the same thing. I traded my 16" Baja wheels for the TRD Sport 17" wheels. Stock size for those is 265/65R17. They're wider but the same height.

    Not sure which one's you're looking at. TRD Off-Road config comes with 16" wheels and 265/70R16 tires.

    If you're keeping to the street - I like the "sport" configuration (17" wheels) better, though. 65 is a nice moderate sidewall profile for a truck.

    Good catch. I assumed he was referring to the TRD Sport wheels when he mentioned 17" wheels.

    I just thought those nice rims on toyota trucks were 17", those are 16" on the white taco? And can I get that style rim in a 16" ?

    Oswego's truck has the TRD Sport wheels which are 17". His comment was referring to the selection of tires that are available for a 17" rim vs a 16" rim and the price of the tires. Tires for the 17" rim are slightly more expensive but worth it in my opinion. I liked the look of the 17" rims so the extra money for tires every few years was a worthwhile compromise.
