Any stock 16x7 Toyota rim works. I've seen this tire size on Tacomas, both the new gen and the previous gen.

Yeah it does, John. Your footprint gets bigger, but it gets bigger by getting more longer than wider.. you're still increasing footprint and grip when you air those skinny boys down.

235x85x16 is like a 32" and 255x85x16 is like a 33", the width on these is around 10 inches maybe 10.5 depending on the brand.

Both should work out fine on stock toyota 16x7s, as Matt has said.

I was assuming what you said in the first post was still true: "I don't like the rims I have on now, so going with something basic, no frills, cheap but durable isn't a problem."

I bought 5 16" used styled argent steel Toyota wheels for my Nissan Pathfinder from my Good Year dealer. They got them from a salvage company in Denver. They had about 20-30 dropped off and then we picked the best 5 of the bunch. They charged me $50/wheel back in 2006.

I guess mine are so old that the sidewalls are too hard and stiff to deflect much. I've gone down to 12 psi with no deflection. My current tires are BFG ATs of very old, but unknown age. My wheels are 16x7 Centerline fakies.

Tire Date Codes

IIRC they may not have a noticeably larger contact patch until you do the Robbie-approved chalk demonstration.

Yeah, Matt, I can't find a date code on these. I chose to replace the tires on the daily driver first, but these do need to be replaced sooner than later.

oh nice, well then one less thing I have to worry about. Even though I don't really like my wheels, I don't wanna spend any more cash than I need to.

Thanks for all the info guys, its really helped me out.

Anyone have any tire recommendations? I'm currently running the Yokohama AT/S and have been really satisfied with them till now that they are bald, I'm not brand loyal though unless it proves to be way better.

So am I going to have enough room in the wheel well with this tire (235x85x16), its definitely a taller tire?

I like that Y742S, going took more into that one.
