    16". You end up with more tire than rim when going bigger


    16' TRD OR DCLB Inferno

    What dug deflector did you use. Does it stick on the paint instead of wrapping around the front hood edge?

    No it's attached to the hood.

    I also want bigger tires on my TRD sport. Looking at KO2's what is the biggest I can put on my stock rims without rubbing or having to remove mud flaps. Any all advice is appreciated

    From everything I've read, it looks like I'll go with 265/75/16 on mine

    I have 16' methods on my truck with 33's and KO2's. My god she looks so sexy and I made a right choice going from 17' to 16' it look so much nice. But it's all personal preference I guess
