    Just came to the realization that 70 aspect ratio tires are cheaper than the stock 65 ratio. In fact, it looks like they are a the same price as the stock tires that come on the 16 inch factory wheels. Just wondering who is running 265/70R17's. Do you notice any difference? Did you need to cut anything? I was pissed at the cost penallty of having 17" wheels on my TRD but if I can get away with 70s, maybe I won't be so pissed?

    BFG A/T KO 265/70/17, '11 FJ wheels, 5100's all four corners, Eibach springs, 1/4" Taco lean spacer, Leer 100XR, WeatherTech liners, trimmed mud flaps and I farted in it.
    They fit fine, no trimming needed. I think that's as big as you can go without getting a lift and cutting shit. Replaced my stock tires with barely 3k on the truck so I can't really comment on how they affect gas mileage.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    I ran that size when my truck was stock. It'll fit with no trimming, but possibly needing to remove the front mudflaps if you go offroad

    Thnaks for the info,

    Eventually I am planning to get a 3" lift of some sort and plan to keep the same size tires. All I really need is a bit of ground clearance for washed out logging roads so I am not really that interested in loosing MPGs for 285s. Do you supposed I could go to 265/75 on 17's. I don't even know if that size exists or what the price is. Looks like I might just stick with 70 a.s. I would keep the stock wheels even if I did lift it.

    Pic would be great.

    I have them on my stock Sport wheels. I am lifted 2.5 in front and have no problems at all. I have the Grabber AT2's and get the same gas mileage as with stock tires

    I'm running that size on my winter tires. Haven't noticed any rubbing yet with the aftermarket rims. Looks good and handles well in the winter stuff so far.

    Yeah that is a pretty good deal. I paid about $700 installed, and I thought that was a pretty good deal.
