    I need answers and I need them quick!!! Last day for discount tires rebates, I've got my mind set on Cooper's STT Pro, just need size. Truck: 06 DCSB with a 5100 and ome 885 lift coming in soon, but pretty much stock. Can't decide which Tire size.
    255/75/17 load C 4 for $803 before the $130 rebate. OR
    265/70/17 load E 4 for $976.28 before $130 rebate???
    Do I care for the Loads? Looks? What would be better I hate buyers remorse!!!!!
    These are the tires I want, just need help deciding. Couldn't find much info on the 255/75. Please any help will do, I'll be mounting it on my Dark bronze Ray 10s. Please help me decide before tomorrow night!!!!!

    you have a lift coming 285/70/r17's are the biggest you can put on that lift without major cutting why not those?

    E's are a heavy tire, great if you off road in really rough stuff, not so great if you are primarily pavement and light trails

    I've thought about 285s but ultimately I've decided I didn't want to cut into the truck and want to just give it a little more lift. With aggressive tires

    get the Es. tougher tire in case you decide to offroad and imo ride smoother than stock (at least my 315/75/16 e rated tires do). take that with a grain of salt.

    I'm load range E all the way. On the taller profile tires, the stiffer sidewall steers and handles better. They are far more resilient on offroad trails and even graded roads with crushed rock. They are heavier, and they do ride a little stiffer. I don't expect the truck to ride like a car, but it can if the advantages of the E aren't worth it to you. Skinny works better for the places I go, so the 255 cross section is my pic. I run the Cooper Max in 255/85-16. I wish I had the cash to grab another set with the rebate.

    True, today is the last day for rebates!!! I've got about 30k on my Maxx and they still have a lot of treads left. Only thing about them is that they aren't evenly wearing out.

    You have to rotate on a Tacoma on a regular basis. I rotate mine every oil change (every 5,000 miles). Otherwise the fronts will cup. It's the IFS.

    Thanks for those who reply, but I decided to go with the 265s.
