    Hello to all. I've searched and searched (and used the "search" function), and went through almost every thread on tires and I'm still looking! I have a 2006 non-TRD double cab SR5. I'm getting the rear TSB done after Christmas (parts are in :D). Will I be able to fit 265/75/16s after the TSB with no rubbing? I guess I won't know until after the fix if I need to level it out. I've read a lot of threads from members who had the TSB done, but I couldn't find any with a DC non-TRD going to this tire size that mentioned rubbing or no rubbing. I would rather go to the 70s if there is a chance of rubbing. I've also been looking at front spacers and was wondering if I should level it out first or get new tires first. Thanks in advance!!

    Well the 265/75/16 is about a 31.5" tire, so there will be a good chance that it may rub. I'm not 100% sure about this though.

    Well the non TRD part really doesn't matter as after the TSB you'll have the TRD suspension.

    That said after I get around to getting the TSB done on my truck I am intending to go with 265 75 R 16s, with billy 5100's in the front set at 1.75 above stock with probably a 1 inch front diff drop just to be safe.

    Long winded way of saying that I don't expect to have any rubbing problems, so I think you should be fine.

    Stock off road package tires are 30.6" diameter.

    The 265 75 R16 in the same tire is 31.7".

    A 1.1" didameter increase should not rub.

    but if u do rub, just get some simple lift spacers in the front to level it back out and lift it up so it doesnt rub

    Thanks for all the replies. One concern I had is that since I don't have a TRD, my front springs aren't the heavyduty type. I don't mind lifting the truck at all, I just didn't want the front higher than the rear if they rub and I have to adjust and go back to the rear with a block. I was trying to keep it simple.

    a 2.5" lift in the front AFTER the tsb will put it pretty even...maybe a smidge higher in the front. so either find a 2" front kit and u'll be ok or do 2.5" in the front and add the 1" block in the rear if u dont like the look. i may be adding a 1" block to the rear to slightly lift it up...not sure yet though b/c i like the way it looks

    Okay, so a 2" front lift after the TSB with no rear block should work with 265/75/16s?

    Looks good. I love the blacked out look. Did you get the wheels powder coated or painted?
