I'm thinking about this size for my next tire instead of the 305/50 since I'm going to stick with the factory 20x8 wheel. Does anyone by chance have a picture of this size on a Tundra? Just wondering how the proportions work out - I know it's one inch taller but was curious if someone had a picture.

Thanks a lot!

Here's my 2010 with limited 20's . I went with 275 60 20. I also have the toytec 3/1 level kit

Stugots,
Did you lose MPG and/or speedometer calibration when you went from a 275/55/20 to a 275/60/20? How much taller is the 60 than the 55? Thanks!

3/1 lift on Platinum Wheels with 275/60r20 Cooper Zeon LTZ's

View attachment PlatinumWheels.bmp

Lost some MPG due to heavier tires (55's were D-rated, 60's were E-rated). I think the tire weight was the factor; each was about 20-lbs heavier. I calculate the MPG by hand, I would add another 3% due to the taller tire.

Havens77...what is your MPG before/after installation of the 60/20? Thanks!

Doing the math for the 275/55R20

(275 mm x 55% x 2) /25.4mm/in = 11.9" then add the 20" for the wheel in (+20") and you have 31.9"

Do the same thing for the other tire size:

(275 mm x 60% x 2) / 25.4 mm/in = 12.99. Then, adding the 20" wheel in, you're at 33"

Edit: Aaaaaand I lost the quote somewhere along the way. Someone asked the question up there somewhere.

I would say that I lost a solid 2-mpg (reason possibly being the heavier tires combined with changing from highway to all-terrain and a 3/1 lift, but I could definitely be wrong). My case may be unique though and, again, I have the 4.6. Somewhere around that time I installed a Volant CAI, but I don't think that should have hurt the fuel efficiency at all.

Well...those that have installed the 5100s or 3/1 kit and went with a 275/65/20 tire are reporting a loss of 3 - 4 MPG...so around 2 for the 60/20 sounds about right.

Makes it tough to do a mod with gas prices what they are these days...knowing that it will continuously cost you money, but it sure does look awesome!!!

Thanks for the feedback guys.

BTW...how many miles do you have on your Cooper tires and how is the highway ride (noise and ride quality)? Thanks!

2.5" Front leveling kit with 275/60/20 Cooper Discoverer AT3s.....couldn't be happier. Acutally gained .5mpg around town but lost a little bit on the hwy mpg. These are LT rated truck tires.

ABAD08TRD...Any idea how much you lost on the highway? Which kit did you use for the front?

Bought some billet aluminum spacers off of Ebay.....I've done this type of lift to 3 different Gen2 Tundras of mine with great success. I probably lost 1.5-2 mpg on the hwy...I was getting 17.4 on the way to work this morning. The spacers usually run between $65-$80 + Labor + Alignment (which I would have Toyota do = $69 +/-).....it's a great, inexpensive way to get it to look great! The tires were around $650, they ride great and have a very deep tread.
