    What's up guys so I want to upgrade my wheels and tires but do not have a lift. I'm sure there are threads on this already but can't find an exact answer. Was wondering if anyone has done this and what sizes they fit? Stock wheels and tires are 245/75R16 looking to stay on 16" wheels but upgrade tires and wheels together what is the max size or tire I could fit? Thank you very much in advance for your advice.

    You can fit 265/75/16 no problem. You may have to remove the front mud flaps but it looks better without them anyways

    I've never ran that size but it should fit since it not really bigger than stock. If you go aftermarket on wheels just make sure you have the proper backspacing

    265/75/16 is the biggest you can go with no lift/trimming/rubbing according to Discount Tire.
    I have Pro Comp 7032 16x8 4.5 backspace/0 offset with BFG T/A KO2 265/75/16. They stick out about 1-1 1/2" more than stock and don't rub at all

    Awesome thank you! WEX, exactly the look I'm going for and was planning to get the KO2's as well once I had confirmation of no rubbing. Really appreciate the advice. If you don't mind me asking where did you order from? They carry those on tirerack.com and that's where I was going to order unless anyone knew of a better site or store! Thanks again

    Thanks. I actually bought them from discount tire. Just over $900 for the 4 installed with the warranty/lifetime rotation. I would recommend buying new TPMS as the stock ones max out at 55psi.
    I run a bit higher on these because they are 80psi max cold. Discount recommended 55psi.
    The rims I bought at auto anything. Pro comp is having a 15%off sale. New customers get an additional discount plus pro comp is paying for next day air. $433 for the wheels to my door.

    Real nice set up. I recently did a 3" leveling kit on my DC or 2 wheel drive. Soon new tires will be done. Thinking I may try to do 33's with a 1.25 spacer on the stock rims.

    They are the 10ply. Apparently BFG no longer makes anything but 10 in that size, and if that's the look you want, your gonna have to take the ding on mpg

    Got these today at Discount tire. 265/70/17s. BFG AT K02s. Got the 6-ply tires. Had a chance to lift both 10 ply and 6 ply. 10 Ply is waaaaay heavier. Discount Tire said 6 ply is fine for my little Tacoma. American Outlaw "Ranger" wheels, 17x8.5, -6 offset.

    Had to remove front mud flaps and then trim a little plastic protrusion under the flap, which is not noticeable and would be covered up if flap reinstalled. Don't off road really except for trips on dirt paths with slight bumps and occasional mud at remote shooting ranges.
