Look into the falkens.. Iím also debating size.. will be doing a 2Ē lift soon and Iím looking at 275/70/17 wondering how 265/70 will handle and look?
265/70 will handle & look almost exactly like a 275/60 will... its only a 10mm width difference.

Definitely never thought of that size but seems super skinny, 260/75/17 prob be skinniest I would go, but in your opinion why would someone want to go skinnier per say ? What advantages? Cost etc? Keep in mind Iíll be throwing in a mild 2Ēlift ..

yeah, scope some google searches on '4th gen 4runner 255' and youll see a lot of results, image tab that search. they arent super skinny...i think 12" wide total (might be wrong). theyre 33s unlike what many people run on here (perhaps the two options you referenced in fact arent 33s) theyre lighter, cheaper. i am going to stick with this size probably, with the v6, sliders, tire carrier full size spare...have to keep her lean or else too inefficient in my opinion.


not to mention: i found an obscure, raw, unpolished footage of one a 4runner with 255/75 go through literally the most terrain and obstacles of any ive ever seen. ill try to find it; so they perform is what i meant. i run the tires on FJ 15mm offset rims and old man emu low lift

if i had the v8 i might run more tire to be honest. a lot of ppl run the 265/70 and the 285/75 i believe but it requires cutting the body mount, etc. and that tire might be the 34"

im curious what the diameter of the 275/70 is.i have seen a few with that size and it seems nice, i thought it wasnt a 33 and beefy/heavy compared to 255/75 and 265/70

Well if you want to get technical , 255/75/17 has a diameter of 32.1Ē, width 10Ē and a sidewall 7.5Ē the 275/70/17 has a diameter of 32.2Ē width of 10.8Ē and sidewall of 7.6Ē of course dependant on different tire manufacturers ... so they are both nearly identical with the biggest difference being in width !!

thanks for those specs. the 275/70 i might be interested in in future but maybe not with the weight.

i have the OME 883/895e with bilstein 5100. like a 2-3" suspension lift
no body lift. barely any rubbing too

Nice !!’ I too was thinking of going with the Bilstein route but living in Canada and the salt usage in winter.. I decided I’m going to go with the fox 2.0 set up and their all aluminum which stands up to salt and no rust! Will get the 895 ome rears and more than likely the 275/70 although I’m looking at maybe 260/75 as a happy medium but a .2 bigger diameter .. lol. Was going with the ko2 but I’ve heard good things about the falken wild peaks and cheaper as well.. so we will see..

Sounds like a good setup!! I didnt know they made 260/75 but w the v8 and what you described the 275 70 could be badass.

a popular step up from stock size is the 265/70/17, no rubbing at all on even stock suspensions & will add a little extra height for small lifts. going to a wider tire or addding spacers is when you might have rubbing issues & need to cut or mod mud flaps & fender liners.

heres a chart to use to know the size of any tire..
