Hello,

Wondering if anyone knows if the 05 Tacoma Access Cab will accept 31.1050 tires without a lift? I know my old 97 did without a problem. Would love to see pics if anyone already has them on.

Thanks,

Miked

NO, not even close. You will need at least 4". Took 6" to clear 35's, and they still scrub, due to the design of the fender. The back side of the fender is almost straight down. I have an 05 DC 4x4 also.

31s are a little big...by no means so large that you'll need 4"...but definately a little large. You can probably do 31s with a 2.5" spacer lift...hell you might be able to trim to get them in, but I would say you are better off lifting it...

for 35s though, it definately would be 6" to clear that...its just too big...

i think anyway...good luck

4"s for 31's? way too exagerated. i have a 33 12.50's on a 3" lift.

Agreed... you could fit em if you want to. I have 285/75/16 with about 2.5" of lift. Had to do a little trimming, but it's just the plastic at the bottoms of the fender wells... Think weight reduction :D

The 31/10.5-15 , 245/75-16, 265/70-16, and the 265/65-17 are all the same height +/- a fraction, and all but the 245's are about the same section width, so of course they will fit if the 15' wheel will clear caliper's etc.

31's(265's) are stock tires for a pre runner and the 4x4's.

265 is the tread width in mm, not the height. Height is:

2 * (tread_width * sidewall ratio) + wheel size


Offroad/PreRunner stock is 245/75/16. This is the size of the Dunlop GrandTrek at20's. This is a 30.468" tire.

Offroad/PreRunner option is 265/70/16. This is the size of the BFG Rugged Trails. This is a 30.606" tire.

I dunno, that last 0.0050" might not clear your upper control arms!

:clown:

There's a tire math quick reference and explanation in the Tundra Offroad FAQ, if the explanation above didn't make sense for anyone...doesn't just apply to Tundras btw. To finish the calculation above, you need to convert millimeters to inches, 25.4 millimeters per inch.

FYI unless you have a bare bones base model, your Toyota truck/suv came with 31x10.5 (265/70/16 and equivalent) tires.

Nope. I don't have a TRD package, but I do have a V6 4x4 SR5 #2 with alloy wheels, fog lamps, leather steering wheel & shift knob, color-keyed front bumper & overfenders, etc. It even had factory-installed tube steps and a bed mat. But it came with the poopy 245/75 tires. It may be that it originally had BFG RT's that were swapped out at the dealer, as this truck sat on the lot for a few months before I bought it.

I'll be honest, I don't see any 4x4 Tacomas on the road with the same trim level that *don't* have ATs on them. I got hosed. :(

You did not get hosed, on an SR5 without TRD offroad the tire will be a 245/75-16, with a stand alone option for alloy wheels @ 400.00 retail, still with 245's.

I. Got. Hosed.

This is America. I am an American. I have an overdeveloped sense of entitlement.

Sorry, I should have said "w/o the offroad package"...

Are your speedometers calibrated for the 265/70/16 tire or the 245/70/16 tire? Mine's calibrated for the larger tire, but Tundras came with the same thing...245s on non-offroad, base models etc...

Anyone with a 245/70/16 have a GPSR they could check with?

The non-offroad stock tires aren't 245/70-16, they're 245/75-16.

The difference in diameter of a 245/75-16 and a 265/70-16 is negligible. You're talking 30.468" (245/75-16) versus 30.606" (265/70-16). This .138" (roughly 1/8") difference has no practical effect on the speedo.

Yep, that describes my taco! It's an 07 DC SR5 4X4 (w/o the offroad package) and came with steelie wheels and wimpy 254/75's. It was awfully expensive to have such cheap wheels, but I after haggling with the dealer for three hours I didn't leave myself any negotiation room for an upgrade.

I ordered some MB Motoring Blitz wheels ($105 a piece) and will be putting the steelies/stock tires on eBay as soon as the lift is done this weekend.

reading this thread is really making me antsy... I can't wait to get these old skoo 15x10 Centerline Outlaws from my buddy, jack up my taco, remove a front wheel, and see if these will clear the brake calipers.

I doubt it tho.

I don't know why, but I REALLY want these to fit...guess I miss the same model rims when they were on my old hilux (check my gallery, u'll see it there, heh).
