    I found a set of 17" FJ Cruiser Steelies for my '07 pre-runner!

    So.... what tires should I get?

    07 Pre-Runner Off-Road.
    :: No plans to lift it
    :: Most driving (sadly) in town :(
    :: Once in a while - dirt and a little off-road. Have only used my locker 2 times! (I work too much...)

    My most extreme uses are getting to trailheads for hiking and biking. Example: driving up to Roger's Trough in the Superstitions. Although, I would like to come out once in a while with the other AZ dirtheads on here to see what can be done with a stock pre-runner!

    Truthfully, the Rugged Trail TA's that came stock with it fit my needs pretty well.

    Edit... what size should I get?

    Any suggestions?

    the biggest size unlifted is a 265/70/17. terra grapplers come in that size as well as BFG AT's i believe...cant go wrong w/ either

    Hadn't thought about the Terra Grapplers... they cost less than the BFG TA's, and seem pretty good.

    Thinking about this... I know it's hard to go wrong with the BFG TA's - but they are pretty spendy.

    So ::
    What do you guys think would be the "Best Bang for the Buck" considering that my usage isn't that extreme?

    Or, is this a "You get what you pay for" situation?

    yeah..and i'll believe that like the guy that did the v8 swap on his


    look at the pic u posted...there's like 2" between the back of the front fender and the tire. unless the entire fender has been gutted, there's more than a slight rub. thats not mentioning the rub on the UCA since there on stockers and no spacers/new uca's

    i'm quite sure they're on there, but there's no way it's a ' little rub on turns"...there was a guy on here that put 35's on a 3" lifted 1st gen...rubbed to hell too...but he could be the guy that said he did it. the second pic u posted looks like the back of the front fender is touching the tire, the front is like 2" away, and its pointed completely straight

    No worries... but it has gone astray, from talking tires to guys talking about rubbing. :eek: (just kidding - really no worries, it's entertaining.)

    well you know what? obviously you dont believe so i will quit wasting my time i have no lift, i run the 285/70/17 on stock rims i got a prerunner sport i have shown you pictures obviously you still dont believe me. not much more i can say maybe my truck is different obviously it is because i got those tires with no lift. so thats all i gotta say.
