Hi all,

This may or may not have been talked about. I know it has on the Sequoia. I have an 06 Tundra DC which will soon have the 18' standard Enkei wheels that comes with the X-SP package here in the southeast region for the 06 model Tundra. I am buying them thru the parts dept at my local Toyota dealer. The standard tire for that 18' wheel sold on the 06 Tundra with the X-SP package is a Michelin 275/55/18. My question is this: Can I go with a taller tire......like a 60......and not have any problems with rubbing or having my speedo recalibrated or any thing like that? A 275/60/18 to be exact.

Thanks guys....

ummm....285 is the width of the tire. ;)


So do you mean you want to get a 285/55/18?

exactly what tire size do you want?

You know, I knew I would get that backwards. Ok, I would like a little more sidewall. But NO rubbing. I want it to look nice without it looking stupid.:p

My thread has been edited.:tu:
great now my post makes no sense now! lol


well whenever you increase your tire size in height, then the speedo and odometer will be slightly off. This is due to fact that the tire has a bigger circumference so the revolutions will change.

As far as the rubbing issue I'm not sure but I'm guessing that you will probably not have any. Do you know the specs on those rims?

If you want to see a 275/60-18, check out my pics. The difference
in diameter is not large enough to cause any speedometer error
(just over 1/4" difference). I went with the 60s because I wanted
a speed rated tire, HR in this case, The 275/55 is an SR.

I have had these wheels/tires for quite a while and have never
had any clearance problems. It's a decent combination I can
recommend.

Isn't a 275/60/18 about 1" taller compared to a 275/55/18?

Maybe I'm doing my math wrong, but that's what I come out with.

275 x .60 = 165

165 x 2 = 330

330/25.4 = 12.99

12.99 + 18 = 30.99"

275 x .55 = 151.25 x 2 = 302.5/25.4 = 11.90 + 18 = 29.90"

Your math is right it is about an inch difference, would translate to the speedo being off by about a mile an hour or two (registering slower than actual). Most likely not noticible.

You are right when comparing the 275/60-18 to the 275/55-18.
I wasn't clear when I stated the difference is around a 1/4".

What I should have said, is the difference between the stock
wheel/tire combination (265/70-16) on the truck now which is
30.6" in diameter and the 275/60-18 which is 30.9" in diameter
is around 1/4".
