: Stock Tire Size

As far as I know, my truck is just a SR5. However, Discount Tire says my factory tires would've been 255/70R18 if that was the case. The label on the door panel in my Tundra says factory equipment was 275/65R18 which is what Discount Tire says comes on the Limited with 18" wheels. Can anyone shed some light on what the stock tire size should be on a SR5 without the TRD package?

Thanks,
Daniel

It depends on the wheel. If you have steel wheels (standard on tundra grade and sr5) then it's the 255/70/18. If your truck came with alloy wheels (available on SR5, standard on limited), then it's 275/65/18.

Okay I have the alloys I'm pretty sure. This is my truck.

I think you do have the smaller ones. The BFG rugged trail 275/65 18's come on the TRD five spoke alloy wheels.

If you have the TRD package, it included the alloy wheels and 275/65R18 BFG's.

Heres a crazy thought....why dont you try looking at the side of the tire. Ill bet big money the size is stamped on there somewhere! :rolleyes: And by looking at your picture Ill bet even more they are 275/65/18s.

Toyota has some weird configurations with their trucks, I have a SR5 and it has the SR5 wheels and it came with 275/65/r18's although they weren't the BFG Ragged Trails, they were the Michelins.

Yep. Those look like the alloys that come standard on the limited. The original tires would've been 275/65/18 -- the michelins like the other poster pointed out and not the BFG's.

That would be way too easy and would make too much sense!!!!

I know what's on the wheel currently Captain Sarcasm. That's not what I asked. I was trying to figure out what option the truck came with that would give it 275s since it's definitely not a Limited and it's not the TRD either.

See above. :tu:

As far as I know, I don't have the TRD off road package. No decals (yes I know they can be removed) and no front skid plate.

So it was an option to get the Limited wheels on non-Limited models?

My 2010 Tundra DC 4x4 NON Trd, with alloy wheels has Bridgstone P275/65R18 with a road tire tread.
From looking at your Blue truck I would say they are the same wheel.

I'm having the same issue.. I'm a truck googan.... My tire size is P255/70/R18 and I'm in the market for new tires. First I'm trying to find out if I can put p275/65/R18 on my stock rimms. I have the original equiptment alloy rimms - no trd. Second I'm trying to figure out what brand tire I should put on. I'm looking for an aggresive tire.

Will the BFG A/T T/A KO p275/65/r18 fit on my rimms?

If so, is that a good tire?

Sorry for hijacking your thread but I think my questions will help you too...

Discount Tire says the 275/65R18 will fit on the stock rim. There are 3 listings for the BFG A/Ts. You can check out the reviews there too. See if this link will work.

You guys are making this far more difficult than it is. There are 3 basic tire sizes all tundras come with, 255/70/18 (generally steel wheels), 275/65/18 (alloy and trd alloy wheels) and 275/55/20. All 3 have the same overall diameter, because all tundras come with the same speedo/odo sync (for lack of better term). 255/70 is narrower, but with more sidewall. 275/65 is wider, but less sidewall, but again all accomplish the same overall diameter, just with slightly different specs. Ill also add, generally its acceptable to go with whats called +1 sizing for tires and still have enough clearance. In other words 285/65/18 and 275/70/18s will all fit stock wheels with no additional lift needed. Hope this helps shed some light on the subject. Oh one more thing of relavance, all tundras come with 8" wide wheels and +60 offset (unless of course the dealer has added some after factory tire/wheel package).

those aren't the Limited wheels, the Limited wheels are 20's, those are the same 18" alloys that I have seen on all of the SR5's around here.

Those are the standard 18 inchers that come on the limited and are an option on the SR5's. The 20's are an option on the limited.

So I have an SR5 with optional 18" alloys that are standard on the Limited. Simple enough. :tu:

I am a newbie and I am trying to understand this. Doesn't 255/70/18 have same sidewall as 275/65/18 since they have the same overall diameter and the same wheel size? 275/55/20 should have less sidewall because they have a larger size wheel.

Chphilo you're correct.
255/25.4)x0.7=7.02 inch sidewall
(275/25.4)x0.65=7.03 inch sidewall
Minimal difference
