Default Anyone run 255/85r16 on a 60?

Thinking about a set of 255/85r16 Toyo MT's on my Fj60. They'll be taller and narrower than the 265/75r16 Nitto AT's I have on it now and was wondering if they'll rub with an OME heavy lift on it? I'd like to go a little taller and narrower and definitely an MT. Thoughts, suggestions?

Does he have a build thread or anything? Curious what lift/wheel combo he has with those Toyo's. Any pics somewhere?

You shouldn't have any problems, I ran 285/75 17's for a long time with very minimal rubbing during hard wheeling. 285's depending on manufacturer are about .5" taller. I'm running 315's now with 2" longer shackles and OME extra heavys.

That's was fj cruiser wheels with a 1.5" spacers all around. Very common setup. I could fit 33x10.5s on the stock steel wheels with or without the spacers.

I'm running 33x10.5 r15's on stock rims...
The lift is what I would consider a 2.5-3" lift
The PO told me it was re-arched stock springs
with 1 long AAL per corner. No rubbing at anytime.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the info guys.

Edit: Ordered the 255/85r16 Toyo MT's today (2/25). Will post up impressions once I have them mounted and run them a bit. First trip on real trails won't be until May though.

Just an update. My 255/85r16 Toyo MT's arrived.

They are super skinny and I'm wondering if they'll work alright with my 16x8 wheels? Anyone know if the 16x7 Steel 70 series wheels that look like 60 series wheels are still available?

I'm running 255/8r16 on a 80 with stock wheels and haven't had any problems. But I don't feel like mine look super skinny. I have cooper stt maxx.

Should be fine. 255mm is basically 10". And those sidewall are plenty stiff.
