I'm hoping to get an idea of what an LT265/75/16 tire will look like on the Tundra. The tires it came with are LT 285/75/16 and I think it's a little too big. This is on a six lug wheel for the Tundra, not sure of the backspace. Would anybody that has that size or equivalent be willing to let me come over and swap wheels over, take a few pics, and swap back?

This is more than an inch difference in height and an inch difference in width.

265/75/16 = 31.4x10.5
285/75/17 = 32.8x11.5

What did it have stock? Wonder if size and model availability had anything to do with the previous owner's choice?

Stock is LT265/70/16. At some point someone put a Fabtech left on the front suspension - adjustable up to 2 1/2". Can't tell if anything was modified in the rear, but it does seem to sit higher than a lot of other Tundras I see around. Maybe I'm seeing 4x2 versions...

anyway then someone put on some crappy off-brand alloy wheels that don't really fit right (and I can't get the stock tire iron on nor an impact socket because the hole for the stud is too small for the OD of the tool) and decided they wanted to max out the ability of the 2 1/2" Fabtech lift by putting on LT285/75/16 tires. They aptly chose to go with their nearest high-end tire store, the local Wal-Mart Tire and Lube Express, and got the biggest bang for their buck in the Liberator tire that had the right size they wanted. Piece of crap tire if I do say so myself, and a bloomin' shame the OEM wheels are long gone. Oh well all will be restored to normal before long, I have my eyes on some '05 Tundra wheels that are pretty sharp looking and I'm trying to decide between Toyo Open Country A/T or Nitto Terra Grappler A/Ts. The Toyos come in C, D, and E ranges and the Nittos only come in D and E ranges. Not sure what would be best for my needs, maybe D.

Dave did you mean 285/75/16? Or 17 like you typed?

Matt,

No 265/75s but I do have a set of 275/70s...Close enough?

265/75s = 31.65x10.43 (not doubting Dave's #'s, just what came from here (http://www.agcoauto.com/content/Tire_Size_Error_Calculator))
275/70s = 31.16x10.83

1/2" short and 1/2" wider but maybe that is close enough for you to get an idea...Mounted on rims that will work on an 80

Matt,
I've got 265/75R16s on my 4Runner. Where do you live, work? I'm near 17th and Sheridan in Lakewood.

I live at Arapahoe and I-25 and work in Aurora. This week is pretty tight but maybe next week might work. I'm not sure but I've heard that 4runner wheels won't fit. Worth a try just to mock it up though. Thanks

If you want to come up to Fort Collins, I've got the factory 16's from my Tacoma with 265's sitting at my parents house (for sale if you are looking for factory rims) that you can try out.
