    Just joined. New taco owner.

    I have a stock base model. 4cyl. With what looks like hand truck tires. I definitely don't want a lift but looking for the biggest tire possible for truck. 17"s/18"s. please throw some suggestions my way. Clueless.

    I'd like a wider tire. Hight too. To fill wheel well up a bit. Will stock wheels and tires fit from a 4wd taco?

    U guys know where I can find pics of anything like this?

    Yup, those stock tires are an embarrassment. First thing I did was throw on some larger rubber.

    From what I've gathered, the largest you can go sans modification is 235/75R15. If you're willing to cut some plastic, you can do the "Black Box Mod" and stuff some 30" tires in there. Anything larger and a lift is required.

    You really only need to post this question once in one thread to get an answer.
    Did you read the above comments?

    What’s the stock size? 215/70/15?
    215/75/15 would fit just fine. It looks like you can fit up to 235/75/15.

    I would at least go with 225/75/15 if you’re wanting a larger tire. 215/75/15 isn’t going to be any wider and only 0.8” taller.
    The 225/75/15 are going to give you 1.4” of height and 0.4” of width.

    What's the difference of the LT designation

    I don’t know why you are so hung up on those letters haha they mean Light Truck-metric. They are designed to be used on vehicles that are capable of carrying stuff ie a truck or towing trailers and are usually a C, D or E rated tire. There is no difference in actual size. A LT225/75/15 is still a 225/75/15.

    Lt normally doesnt have any road mileage warranty.
    Ironically, i think a P metric has higher load carrying capacity than a load range C for our trucks.

    I just put these 235/75/15's on my 2014 2wd access cab. Man it looks so much better. What a difference. The ride is compromised a bit but then again it is a truck. These are Toyo Open Country All Terrain tires. After much research I went with these because of the reviews and the 65,000 mile tread warranty. After some hard bargaining it was $625 out the door with road hazard, lifetime alignment, rotating, and balancing at Tire Discounters.
