Yet another tire size thread

I know this has been covered to death, and I’ve done my best to read all I could find on this forum and others. But I didn’t find much about 295/70/r16 tires.

So here it goes.

Background info:

- Previous owner put 265/75/r16 highway tires on this stock height 2000 SR5 with limited-style big fender flares.

- Soon I’ll have Bilstein 5100s and OME 880/906 (1.5”-2” lift) and Spidertrax 1.25” spacers.

- I know that I’ll be able to fit a 265/75/r16 tire in the stock spare location based on what I’ve read.

Questions:

- Has anyone run 295/70/r16 all terrain tires? (Maybe BFG KO2s?)

- Would that size fit in the stock spare location? (I’d like to run a 5-tire rotation.)

- Should I just stick with my current 265/75/r16 size?

Thanks!




EDIT: after even more searching I’m not seeing much info on 295/70/r16s at all. Is this even a standard tire size?

I could swear I saw it listed on another 3rd gen build before...

FWIW I'm running 265/75/16 KO2s on a 1.75" OME lift and everything fits great, looks great, and that particular tire diameter makes the speedometer 100% accurate at all speeds when I compare it to GPS. I also have a 5'th full size spare mounted on another star wheel and it fits in the stock location.... but barely. I know the 295/70/16 is only 1.9% bigger in diameter but that might just be enough to not fit well. Personally I'd stick with the 265/75/16 and eschew the spacers.

Perfect. This is so helpful. Thank you!

285s just barely fit in the stock spare location (not even properly so), so I very highly doubt 295s will
I've seen a few other people here use 295s before but few and far in between, it's definitely an uncommon size. I think user @Wrenchin4torts is using some

I'm running 295/70-17's which is a inch larger.
BUT I also have worked in the tire industry the last 14 years. So I can help. 295/70-16 is a very rare size it's actually smaller in diameter than the 285/75-16 but wider. It's really only .5" taller over the 265 which you only gain 1/4" ground clearance. Not worth the heavier set up.

Id be shocked if it fit underneath especially with the hitch. I run a swing down hitch mounted spare carrier on mine.

I personally would run the 265/75-16 because you have a lot more options being a more common size and prices are lower, also you won't need spacers furthering your savings. If you want a wider stance save for wheels
If you want bigger tires I'd run 285-75-16 more options /lower prices actual ground clearance gains. But you need to relocate your spare.


Lastly don't buy ko2s way overpriced for poor performance.

@wrenching4torts since you have so much tire experience, can I ask you your opinion on what tire might serve me best?

90% of the time I'm on road. But they're often bad roads, with bad weather half the time. I mean city pavement with potholes, branches, flooding, snow, ice, rain, slush, etc. Some highway use as well.

10% off-road. Not rock crawling, but rather fire roads, dirt/mud, gravel, small rocky/rooty sections, water crossings (< 1 foot), etc. Basically just getting off the beaten path for camping, exploring, and mountain biking.

Your comments (and others') confirm my going with 265/75/r16 tire size.

- I'm assuming I should go with an All Terrain tire? (rather than a highway/all-season, or mud)

- As far as which specific tire to go with, sounds like you're saying avoid the KO2s and go with Yokohama Geolandars?

- What's you opinion of General Grabber AT/X?

Thank you

I'm not @wrench ing4torts but just wanted to give my two cents. I am also on the east coast like you with lots of snow, ice, potholes, roots, mud, etc. I have the Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws in 265/75r16 on my 4Runner, my family also has them in various sizes on a first gen Tundra and a Land Rover Discovery. Having tried quite a few all terrains on various vehicles I can say hands down these are my favorite tires for the use case you described.

Some folks on here and other forums claim that they wear quickly, I personally have found them to wear exceptionally slowly when rotated properly. Mine are the 116T rating but the other vehicles have different load ratings and have been equally satisfactory.

^^^ am also using Falken Widepeaks and very much like them so far. Though I don't get nearly as much snow or ice as your side. Also cheap

Yet another tire size thread

Thanks @tgreenwood75 and @Devbot

Those weíre definitely on my radar but itís really nice to hear your review of them specifically in regards to my use case and I think after reading some more and hearing you talk about them, theyíve moved to the top of my short list..

You mention some say they are quick to wear, but honestly given the weather we drive in, Iíd rather maximize performance even if it means buying more tires over the life of the truck.
