Recommended Posts

As the topic states I am interested in seeing what the R50s look like with a 255/70/16, 265/70/16 or any other larger than OEM tire size (255/65/16) on a car with stock suspension. I already did search, but just let me know what you have I would appreciate any help.

TIA

Yep, my snowies only rub in reverse. The summers do not rub at all.

 

The snowies are mounted on 16" Tundra rims, so the slight change in off-set may account for part of the rubbing I am guessing.

Fueler... Truck looks great, any more info on it as far as wheels and you rub etc.

Looks great

well the wheels are 16x8 with 3.75" backspacing, which means they are pretty close to stock, only difference is they stick out one inch farther on the outside of the rim. TThe tires equate to 31.6" in standard size.

 

(stock are 16x7 with 3.75 backspacing)

 

 

The tires fit great, it's about the largest I would go on stock suspension, I had to remove the front mud flaps and do some trimming and now they never rub. When I first bought them, I could not even drive straight without it rubbing. I had to have the mexicans at the tire shop help me jack my car up so I could trim, I couldn't even make the drive home without cutting plastic.

 

 

These tires gave me good clearance - however, their large size really slowed my QX4 down. VERY SLOW. Horrible gas mileage.

 

My last tires were 245/70/16 and they fit a lot better. They never rubbed, and the truck accelerated great, they tucked under nicely, unlike my newer 265/75/16. If I could go back, I would.

Correction on Fuelers Post....

 

The stock backspacing is NOT 3.75. The backspacing is actually approximately 4.50". If you are running stock backspacing wheels, they are about 4.5".

 

 

 

Thanks for the correction. I dont know where i got 3.75 from.

 

 

My aftermarket wheels are 4.5" BS, as well as the OEM wheels.
