    I wanted to get some BFG AT ko tires for my new Tacoma but after researching more I have most likely decided to go with the BFG rugged terrain tires instead. They seem to fit my life style and how I use my truck.

    I don't have a lift and want to keep the stock 18" sport wheels. The stock tire size is 265 60 18.

    My question is should I get the rugged terrains in the same size as stock or go with 265 65 18? This size will be 1.04 inches taller and I'm thinking the only benefit will be aesthetics. Will going larger than stock cause any issues ?

    What option would you choose? Why?

    larger size will be fine, and go with the all terrain KO's, from personal experience i've seen trucks with the "rugged fails" slide off the trail (and on wet road) where my AT KO's cut right through, you won't be disappointed with the all terrains

    edit: you'd be surprised at how much of a difference the one inch will make in appearance

    I believe hes talking about rugged terrains not the rugged trails.

    If you like overpaying for a antiquated technology, then yep, go with the KOs :rolleyes:

    OP, I threw your proposed tire size into the tire size calculator and I believe you'll be fine with the 265/65R18. Those would be the same size as the 265/70R17 that plenty of people are running at stock height without any issues. The only issue with changing tire size is your speedo and odometer will no longer be accurate although on my 2007, my speedo read slow from the factory and the larger tires corrected that.
