    will i be able to run 265/80/R15 (32"/10.5"/R15) tires on my 99 prerunner? I have stock 15x7 6 lug wheels and it's lifted in the rear 1.5" aal and up front 2.25" billy 5100s. the 235/75/r15 tires on it now look funny after the lift. if my desired tires fit, how bad will they rub?
    yes, i searched. the tire calculator got me this far...
    once i buy new tires, i'll probably post the old ones on here, which are less than a year old.
    thank you for any help.

    I tried 32's on my 99 with stock suspension and rubbed at full lock. It also might clip the front bumper/lower valance area. Maybe have to trim that a bit to create more clearance.

    I don't see why not. 32" tire is roughly only 0.3" taller than the infamous 265/75s so if manufacturer says it's exactly 32 inches you should be absolutely fine. Plust that 0.3 is only 0.15 on either side of the tire, if that makes sense.

    If you did have to trim anything I would think it would be very minor.

    Also, check the mfg actual tire size measurement because a lot of those "32s" are actually closer to 31.7 or so just like the 265/75s that lots of people likes to run.

    Oops! Read it wrong. I think you should be fine then! Might just be real minimal.

    Really? the 31x10.5s are over 31.5" tall? Got a link to specs? That seems odd.

    285s are about 11.2" wide, no?

    Yeah I've talked to my stepdad about it for my own truck, he owns a tire shop so I'm just going with him.

    265/25.4=10.4 inches wide
    10.4x.75=7.82 in sidewall x2 =15.65+16"wheel = 31.65" tall

    Google the size of a 31x10.5x15 and I would think they will be 31" or shorter.

    Also a 265 and 285 are not the same width. 11.2-10.4 = .8" difference. May not seem like much but it is when trying to get them to fit without rubbing.

    It'll be perfect.
    If you look at whatever tire you're going to get on the specs part it will tell you everything from actual diameter and width to what width wheel is recommended, etc. (It'll say something like 6.5-8" wheel width recommended).
    I wish my wheels were 7in wide instead of 8. . .

    What tires are you looking at?

    my dropped ford ranger had 17x8s and i loved the fat tires on that lil truck. why don't u like your wheels? i actually really like mine stock wheels, i just want to paint them black after i buy a nice jack and jack stands with tax return. :D I haven't started looking into the actual tires yet, just sizes. i know very little about tires and i spent a good portion of the afternoon educating myself via TW today.

    thanks for the help!

    I do like my wheels, a lot. I would just prefer a 16x7 rather than a 16x8 since I like skinny tires.

    Well, start with addressing what terrain you will drive on the most and choose a tread pattern from what will perform the best rather than look the best.

    Then pick a size.

    Then make em fit, haha.

    It almost pains me to see people run Mud Terrains and then drive year around on pavement and several months of the year on ice and snow . . . and never go off road.
    Tires are the only contact between a few thousand pounds and the road, might as well choose from performance rather than looks, ha.

    I think a 32x10.5 is a great choice. I wouldn't go any taller or wider than 33x10.5 unless you are alright with cutting and banging on some stuff. Your stock wheels will be the best back spacing so you don't really have to worry about that. Good luck on your search for the tires that best suit your needs, man :thumbsup:
