    Question 275/65/17 on 05 Access Cab 4X4

    I have a 05 Tundra Limited 4X4 due in the last week of Jan. I plan to replace OEM 265/65/17 (@ 30.7")with Michelin Cross Terrains same day of delivery. Will 275/65/17 ( @ 30.9")fit without clearance issues. Tire Rack shows 275/60/17 (@ 30") as optional, but I would prefer the extra inch the 275/65/17 provide.

    I have the 17" wheels and tires also. I've been researching this too and never even considered 275/65/17. At dicountpartcenter.com they have a tire size calculator. On the first page click on tires and then click on tire size calculator. It's slow to react so be patient.They indicate you're diameter will go from 30.6 to 31.1.I don't have your answer because I'm still running the stock size. Hope this is helpful. Dave

    Question MIchelin 275/65/17

    According to the Michelin spec chart thr 275/65/17 has a diameter of 30.9 vs 30.7 for the 265/65/17. It has a width increase from 10.4 to 10.6. I don't know how 'tight' clearances are, but I'll let you know the results.

    Now I'm not so sure about the accuracy of the "tire size calculator's"you see online. And then the manufacturer says something different.They made the tire so they should know. And I'm now hearing a specific tire size differs in specs from manufacturer to manufacturer. Keep in mind that our stock rim width is 7.5"and the michelin spec chart is showing section width on an 8" wide rim. Most tire places or manufacturers offer a 30 day trial period so if it starts to rub you can take them back.And that's a good thing.
