I am starting to build up my truck into what will eventually be a more off road capable machine. Right now I have the stock wheels and rims. Am I correct in having heard that the biggest tire you can fit on the 15 X 7 is a 31 X 10.5? If I was to get 16 X 8 steel rims would I be able to eventually fit 33 X 12.5 tires on them? Also what is the most trusted All-Terrain tire around. I here that the BFGs are really reliable but I want to know what the best for tread life and the ability to go off-road whenever. In general just describe your current setup and experiences. Thanks for any help.

You must have missed the re-occuring Yokohama Geolandar AT +II thread <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I've seen metric 33" (285/75-16) tires run on factory 16x7 wheels. It looks a little odd and will probably cause you to run them a little under inflated to get the tread flat against the pavement. 16x8 is a great choice.

33x12.50-15 tires require specific wheels to clear the calipers on '01-'04 Tacomas. So you might want to look at Wheeler's Offroad for wheels that will clear on the later trucks, making them easier to sell when the time comes.

Hope this helps...

Oy, tires.

So that I maintain consistency, the BFG All Terrain T/A is the best AT out there. I have put them through hell in the desert and they always brought me home.

That being said, there are sooooooooo many good tires out there, get a warranty and try some. I would also mention that up in your part of the states you might want to look at more off road oriented tires due to the slippery off road conditions. I've been looking and looking at the Kumho's, way cheap and a warranty through Tire Rack... I loved the Goodyear MT/R's on my 4Runner and I'll get a set for the new Taco in a year or so.

Wheel? Rule of thumb, 11.5 section width = 7 in. rim OK, 12.5 section width = get an 8" rim. HTH.

I have Kumho's right now and they seem to do well and it is nice that they are cheap (being a college student) but they are all wearing on the inside pretty bad (probably alignment or something). I might consider Kumho's again but I have heard from others that they are a bad tire. What kind of backspacing do Tacomas require at a minimum?

In this thread (click me) there are quite a number of different wheel and tire setups. Just about anything that fits a 96 to 02 4Runner should fit your Taco.

Anyone know where the best cheap rims are? Steel run pretty cheap and I would rather have those than alloys off-road.
