    Default Max tire size on stock Tundra??

    I am wondering what the max tire size is for a stock Tundra?

    My 265/70/16 BFG's are in need of replacement and I would like to go to a bigger tire. Will 265/75/16's fit without rubbing?

    I was looking at the Toyo Open Country...

    Any comments? Recommendations on a good tire?

    Thanks,

    I ran Mich 265/75R16 Cross Terrains on stock alum. rims lots of room, slightly less power. They were too noisey but handled great. Have stock tires back on now but am thinking of Bridgestone Dueler H/P 285/70R16 on the stock rim. Has anyone tried this size?

    I run 265/75/16's now, and I tired the 285's, they rub like mad at full lock. However, I am adding a lift to it soon, and will be purchasing the 285's this time for sure.

    I'm running BFG's AT 265/75/16's on the stock rims on my 2000 Tundra. I had a little rubbing on the left lower fender plastic, but only because a deer had bent it a little last year. I trimmed it a little and then actually pulled the fender back where it belonged. Since then, no rub at all even in rough going off-road. I love the BFG AT's, great on road and off road. Good luck on whatever you go with.

    Matt,
    I am need of tires also. My Tundra has 295/65SR16 Goodyear Eagle GTII installed when I bought the truck used. Truck has custom chrome rims 16x9. Rides somewhat rough with these wide tires. Have no problem with rubbing, the goodyears are 31.1" diameter when new. Truck looks great however with this wide footprint. Tirerack.com has them special for $101us each. Am thinking of replacing with Michelin cross Terrain SUV in either 275/70SR16 (31.2" diameter), or 265/70SR16 (30.6" diameter). Looking for better ride and wet handling. Tire rack has for $151us or $145us. My rims are not stock 16x8 so I dont want to get too narrow.

    The absolute max I would go on stock rims and no lift is 265/75/16. I had these before my lift and the pass. side rubbed ever so slightly on the mudflap. After 1" lift, no rubbing. The 265's are wide, you can barely fit a finger between the tire and the upper control arm, so go no wider with the 75 aspect ratio. The above tire size fills the wheel wells quite nicely btw.

    Thumbs up BFG A/T KO 265/75/16 Installed & AOK

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for your help with the tire issue. I installed a set of BFG A/T KO 265/75/16's on my truck yesterday. They look awesome. They fit nice and so far I have noticed no rubbing. Even though they recommend 50 PSI in the tires the ride is still smooth and the handling very good. Some extra noise compared to my previous BFG Rugged Trails but it's worth it.

    I can't wait for the snow...

    You're don't actualy have them at 50 psi, do you? That seems like an insane pressure for our trucks. Sure that's not the max pressure for that tire?

    50psi is the max rating for the ko's. If you're currently at that you might want to lower it down to 33-35psi.

    i instaled a dueler revo in a 265 75 16 in the stock rims. and i get rubbing on the mud flaps, and minor rubbing on the frame at full turn. so i took the mud flaps off, nad now at least its not making a lot of noise. u cant tell so much thats its rubbing on the frame, b.c its barley rubbing. i think this is due to the fact that i just have the regular 4x2, and not the trd. so iam just a bit lower. but iam gettin the wheelers coil overs soon so should take care of it.
