I figured i would throw an end all be all in here to settle the age old question "what tire size will fit".
This is my personal opinion and experience, taking into consideration measurements of the wheel well with the cab mount in mind.
You do not have to follow this chart if you have plans to upgrade relatively soon to getting a bigger tire size as it may not be of major importance if that is your plan.
However, it can give you an idea of what will fit with what in regards to tire size and lift with no cutting/molding.

Stock tire sizes (fits regardless of lift size)
17" wheels - 265/65r/17
16" wheels - 265/70r/16


Largest tire without lift (preferred)

16" wheels - 265/75r/16
255/80r/16
17" wheels - 265/70r/17
255/75r/17

3" lift and/or leveling kit

16" wheels - 285/75r/16
255/85r/16

17" wheels - 285/70r/17
255/80r/17

I think I'm good here, but want to do a quick double check.

2" Lift - Old Man Emu w/ SPC UCA's
TRD-OR Wheels (16x7 et +25)
Looking at 255/85/r16 - Toyo Open Country MT (E Rating)

I'm trying to not run spacers, but am a bit concerned about hitting the UCAs.

Benefits/cons of going with LTs
On average carry about 800 to 900 pounds over stock daily. Stock tires are pretty much done at 23000, also they are beat to hell with the places I keep exploring lol, kinda have an idea what I should do just want some more opinions.

I'm upgrading my stock tires to 285/75/16. Wondering if my TPMS (tire pressure monitor sensors) will work with the bigger tires or if I will need new ones?
I may have asked this before, but did you install a suspension lift to fit those 285/75/16, I have 265/65/17 currently

I’m currently getting MR701 17x8 with Falken AT3W 275/75/17 on bilstein’s 6112/5160. However, I found a seller with the SCS Ray 10 that I might be interested instead:

“Brand new HARD TO GET Ray10 "bullet hole" design wheel set by SCS. Purchased and mounted at the shop only to go with a different wheel due to lift. Never been on the road!!!



Color: Matte Gunmetal

Size: 17x9

Bolt Pattern: 6x139.7 (6x5.5 inch)

Backspace: 3.50 inches

Offset: -38mm

Weight: 25lbs”


With my new suspension coming in, will I be able to fit that wheel size and the same Falken tire size? Is that side too big enough that I puke rub? I’m still learning all these numbers and I just wanted a second opinion.

Don't the limiteds have 18" wheels? Got any info on those?
Exactly what I was wondering.. but I’m thinking of waiting on my lift and doing some 17x9 wheels on my Limited and want the biggest tire with no rubbing or cutting/trimming, so I guess I refer back to 265/70/17?

I didn’t see it mentioned, assuming these numbers and recommendations are based off rolling down the road, no wheeling?
