#73 of 103 Front Tires are Rubbing
Jun 13, 2007 (7:38 am)
About 5 years back I put larger tires on my wimpy 1997 2WD Toyota Tacoma truck. Everything was fine until I had those tires replaced. The tire store put on the same size tires, but with a much larger tread and now whenever I hit a bump or pull into a driveway, my two front tires rub the top side of the wheel wells.
Is there anyway I can fix this? I was think about having a 1 1/2" lift kit (coil spring spacers ) installed on the front to lift the wheel well away from the front tires. Will this work and are there any better or cheaper options other than getting new tires?
#74 of 103 Big wheels and tires ???

Not many notes have been written regarding larger wheel size/tire combinations that will fit the '05 onwards Tacos.
I want to purchase a second set of rims with tires for road use only, to suit my TRD O/Road D/Cab. The original factory 16's run M/T tires for my off-road work and don't want to blow them out with excessive highway use.
Does anyone know somebody that is running 20" or 22" wheels? What width rim and tyre sizes are good without clearance problems? (with lift-kits and/or without)
EG; I'd like to run either 285/40R22's on 22x9's or 285/50R20's on 20x9's. Not sure of the offset needed to achieve either combinations. I look forward to any assistance. Cheers.

Just curious if you were able to find a larger tire to fit. I have the same truck with a 3" lift kit and was told I could fit 285/70x17's on it.
#76 of 103 2007 Tire Pressure Monitor System
Aug 21, 2007 (11:26 am)
I bought a '07 Tacoma and purchased after market wheels for it. Love the wheels, but the TPMS sensors would not fit the new wheels. Now the TPMS warning light is always on and I can't figure out how to turn it off. I looked at the reset switch and at the fuses. The fuse is grouped with other functions so I can't go that route. The reset switch was of no use.
Any ideas on how I can delete the warning light?
#77 of 103 Firestone Wilderness HT replacements?
Sep 18, 2007 (12:14 am)
I have a 2003 Tacoma Extended Cab 2WD with 40,000 miles on the original tires. They are Firestone Wilderness HT P205 75R15 97s M+S. They are rated at 60,000 miles, and still have good tread. However, I am beginning to shop for replacements. Can anyone recommend good replacements (competitor or otherwise)? I live in Florida, and I drive mostly on improved roads and highways with very little off road driving. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

i have a 2001 doublcab ltd and i bought the michelin-x ltr because i saw them on the landcruiser and liked the look. it's not the knobby type tire you have but rather a muscular wider street tread style that's still rated for offroad. it gives the tacoma a much more authoritative grip and stance driving and a stronger look. we're lucky we have a truck that's so well-balanced that it won't beat up a set of tires so soon...these tires cost more but last forever too. killer ride also
#79 of 103 Shopping for tires 2006 Tacoma
Oct 25, 2007 (6:12 pm)
I recently bought a 2006 Tacoma 4x4 access cab. The tires it came with were Dunlop AT20 245/75/16 and are about done for. I am looking to purchase a new set of tires and was wondering if anyone had any advice on a good tire and size. I drive alot on the highway and some off road, probably 85/15% so I'm looking for a tire that does well in all weather conditions and gets good gas mileage but can handle some light off roading. Any suggestions would great. Thanks
#80 of 103 2007 TRD offroad
Jan 24, 2008 (5:54 pm)
I have a 2007 TRD offroad tacoma with 4 doors and was looking to get new tires. I got a steal on a set of Goodyear Wranglers 285-75-16, and was wondering what I should do to get the tires to clear. I want to get some Mojaves with teflon coating by American Racing and when I called a shop, they said 285 would not fit. I saw some "spacers" that gave a 2'' lift in the front and was wondering if they work well and if they would even work. Please let me know....Thanks!!
#81 of 103 Toyota Tacoma Sport or Rally Wheels
Feb 05, 2008 (5:06 am)
I have a '95 Extended Cab Tacoma. It has the factory steel wheels and wheel covers (hubcaps) on it. I have seen a sport/rally type wheel on other Tacomas but have never had the opportunity to ask anyone about them. The logo on the wheels looks like a figure 8 or S and they appear to be a Toyota product. Anyone know what they are called or where I could find some?
#82 of 103 Upgrading tires on 08 Tacoma regular cab 4x2
May 27, 2008 (9:59 pm)
Looking for some advice on installing bigger tires on my 08 Tacoma regular cab 4x2. It came with 215/70R15s. I would like to move to 16 inch wheels and maybe 235 size. What advice can I get. Is this going to mess up my gas mileage or speedometer reading?
