I know this question has been asked before and after much searching I decided to join the forum to post this question because there has been no direct answer. I have a double cab 4x4 2007 Tundra, I am running 20" x 8.5" wheels with 275/55/20 tires. I want to get the LARGEST TIRES POSSIBLE both height and width WITHOUT any modifications OR LIFT. I spoke to "tirerack.com" and they said 33" inch tires should fit without a rubbing issue and that 305/50 will fit, not 305/55... but 305/55 are 33" tires and most people say that 33" tires will fit, but 305/55 don't because they rub... is the rubbing due to the width (the 305) or the sidewall height (55) or the combination? I have looked at other sizes that should fit as well such as:
275/60 (33 x 10. 8 same width),
285/55 (32.3 x 11.3)
295/55 (32.8 x 11.6)
305/50 (32 x 12.5)
305/55 (33 x 12.5).

I would love to run 305/55 if possible without any modifications to the wheel well or lifting the truck. Please help. I am about to move from TX to CO and need new tires before the trip and want to order the right size. I am looking at Nitto Terra Grapplers and others.

In need of your help,

Matt

I seen a guy running 33x12.50 on his tundra (i work at toyota in canada) and he didn't have a issue. If anything you may just have to trim the skid plate and it should be fine. Also use this site to compare tire sizes you find: Tire size calculator

Thanks all, I think I am going with 295/55/20 Nitto TRAIL Grapplers... I like how aggressive they are, but per the Nitto Rep because of the aggressive tread and sidewall the 305/55 will likely not fit in the Trail as opposed to the Terra in the same size. I will pose pics once they are on, hopefully this weekend.
