#7372 of 7624 Advice Needed - 265-70-17 BFG All-Terrain TA KO - Is Lift Kit necessary???
Dec 05, 2006 (8:50 pm)
I have a stock 2005 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab TRD Sport 4wd. The factory tires are 265-65-17... I am wanting to put 265-70-17 BF Goodrich All-Terrain TA KO tires on and am wondering if the tires are going to be rubbing??? Has anyone done this? I have the 17" stock wheels and want to keep them. If necessary, I could add a lift kit (or 2" spacers) to the truck to accomodate the tires. THANKS in advance for your input! Matt
#7373 of 7624 Anyone have a 2-3" Lift on their Tacoma???

Do any of you have a 2-3" lift on your 2005-07 Tacoma? I am considering one and was wondering what a good quality brand at a reasonable price would be... The only reason I am wanting a lift is so that I can accomodate the BFG All-Terrain TA KO's that are size 265-70-17...(see previous post).

Every other Tacoma forum I've been to, has said that the 265/70R17 tires will work without rubbing, without a lift. This is actually considered a +1 sizing, and most tire web sites will show this size if you just put in your vehicle.
I'm planning on going with the Bridgestone Revo's AT's in that size, as they have gotten excellent reviews almost everywhere, even better than the BFG's.

I have a 2005 Tacoma Double Cab TRD Sport. I put the 17 inch Tires and wheels that came off of a 2007 FJ Cruiser on mine and going down steep hills and turning I get some rubbing.

sounds like the backspacing is different than your stock 17's, making for a more narrow wheelbase. 265/70/17 is exactly same width as stock, only 1/2" more sidewall....

So did you end up finding them? If so, where? My local dealer (Boston) tells me that while Toyota offers the airbags, they refrain from installing them. Which, frankly seems ridiculous.
#7378 of 7624 New tires for 2005 Tacoma
Dec 16, 2006 (9:17 am)
I have a 4WD, TRD, Double Cab, Short Bed 2005 Tacoma w/towing package with 26k miles. The original dealer tires(P265/70R16 BFG Rugged Trail T/A) are at the wear bars.
On most weekends, I haul a 2-horse trailer with 2 ponies (my daughter is into showing). We also do some mild off-road (at the barn, in the country, or at the beach), but the majority of driving is around town.
I'm looking at Goodyear Wranglers, LT265/75R16. I notice their is not a lot of clearance between my current tires, and the mud flaps in the front (+/- 2.5").
Anybody using this sized tire on this truck? Will I experience any rub (the Goodyear tech. didn't think so)? Any other suggestions?

#7381 of 7624 Speedometer vs GPS accuracy?...
Jan 07, 2007 (8:38 pm)
My '05 Taco speedometer consistently reads about 2-3mph faster than my portable GPS unit measures at the same time. I have stock wheels/tires on the truck, so I assume the speedometer should have been originally calibrated to reflect the correct speed for that tire size.
Does anyone know a GPS unit (which measures speeds to the 10th of a mph) should be more accurate that the stock speedometer?
