    Hi to all,

    Hey TRDsport253, I would like to jump on this one with the same question. I am also looking to upgrade my Taco with bigger tires on my stock steelies(16x7 with 245/75/17) with the BFG All-T's. I have already ordered a set of 4 billies for a tad of clearance, what is the biggest i could go without rubbing?
    This are the sizes I got from the local BFG:
    265/70/16
    265/75/16
    275/70/16

    Thanks for the help!

    My understanding is 265/75/16 is the largest you can go without a lift. I am ordering some in this size next week. I just haven't decided between Duratrac and BFG TA/KO which is what I have on my other trucks.

    265/75/16 is the largest that you can go without rubbing...it is a 31.6 inch tire. Your stocks are 30.6

    285/75/16 is what most people run to get that nice big tire...which is 32.7 inches in Diameter...Most have rubbing issues with this size

    And 265/75/16 is actually bigger than 275/70/16...so jump up to 285/75/16.

    ... but a 275/70/17 is right in the middle and BFG offers this size now.. its a 32.15"x 10.82".. great compromise between the 285's and 265's most are running

    How do you figure the 265's are bigger than the 275's?

    Okay,
    By the numbers, compared to stock the 265/75R16's are 1.18 inches bigger in overall diameter; 275/70R16's are 1.18 inches larger in section width. Will any of these have any rubbing issues? Also is the rubbing attributed to the width or height or both?

    Thanks!

    You don't recommend going bigger?
