So I just got my new Pro and I can not stand how the tires looks compare to the size of the truck. I see everyone say they run 295/70/18 on the older Pros. But has anyone upgraded with this new FOX suspension set up? I went to discount tire and told him I wanted to run that size but he kept insisting that I would for sure rub. So he was trying to get me into 285/65. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The issue is not really the increased higheth of the PRO but suspension components, flaps and etc. I believe a 295/70 would rub without trimming. We're only talking small fractions of difference here. A 295/60 maybe fit but I'm no expert.

Nice truck!

Great looking PRO! Yes,those tires look freakishly small.FWIW,I think I could have gotten away with 285/65/20 on my 2 inch level Platinum.

Even my wife's first comment was "You need new tires" when she saw the first picture of my new TRD Pro.

I went with Nitto Ridge Grappler 285/70. No rubbing, no mods, even kept the small front mud flap.
Those are the tires I am looking to get. is your truck a 2019? looks nice!

Yes, it's 2019. Thanks!
So would 295/70 have been too big? why did you go with 285s.
I see that everyone with the older Pros run 295s and removing that front flap
The guy at discount tire told me 295/70 would rub for sure. but i think he was going with what was recommended by factory for going up in size which was 285s.

285 is pretty tight but 295 would likely fit.

I went with 285s for 2 reasons really:

1. The 285s are almost 10lbs per tire lighter than the 295s

2. Definitely would have needed to remove the front flaps (not a big deal); but I had also seen some mixed reports from other owners on whether further modifications would be required to fit 295s or not (most said no, but others indicated differently).

I have the same truck, got it about a month ago and immediately saw the same issue with the tires. I appreciate the info, been looking everywhere. Question is, however, where did you find the trail grapplers in 285/70? I work at an NTB and can't find that tire in that size. Thanks for any info you can give.

Hi I have a 2016 Tundra TRD off road package and I currently have Michelin 275/65 18 and when these wear out I am going with the Nitto Trail Grappler Gen 2 which are 285/60 18. I have no lift at this time but plan on putting in a 2.5 lift kit in it. I tow a camper so I have to keep it the same front and back.

I Just baught a white TRD pro. I am adding a leer topper. Rino rack on the cab and tires and wheels. I ordered 18" FX pro wheels from FN wheels to give it a nice stance but I can't decide on tires. I'm either going toyo at2 extreme 285/65/18 or toyo rt 275/70r18. I cannot decide between the 285/65 or the 275/70. Does anyone have any opinions. Ones tall and ones wide. Will the 285's look to small?

I actually have the Ridge Grappler, so not much help with the Trail Grapplers. The Ridge Grapplers see to be easy to find online, but I was able to get them at my local tire shop.

Sorry, I meant ridge grappler. The online deal at NTB wasn't showing them and I was checking after we closed. Called the manager this morning and they should be here tomorrow. I'll post pics but I can't imagine they'll look much different than yours. I really appreciate you posting your experience, I've been kicking this around for a month, once you posted the info and picture I had to do it. Thanks again.

BlkPro2019 could not have been more correct. Just finished mounting the 285/70 ridge grapplers, it's tight but they fit with zero mods. After mounting and turning to full lock I have no doubt 295 will require front flap removal. These 285s may hurt something if you bottom out at full lock, but that's probably a driver error issue if you're bottoming out with the wheel fully cranked. Thanks again for being the guinea pig, you nailed it.

Your truck looks awesome. Did you need to recalibrate the speedo? If so, how did you do it? Thanks!

I have a 2017 Pro. I used to have a 2011 Rock Warrior & I ran 285/75/17 on stock wheels. I would like to run that same size in an 18" if I could. Would that size fit with no modifications on stock Pro wheels? I see from here that the 285/70's run with no modifications.

I didn't bother with recalibrating. I did the math and figure it's reading about 3-5mph slower than actual speed at 70 mph on the speedo. The slower you're going the lower the margin of error is and I'm rarely going more than 5 over anyway. Didn't seem worth the hassle/cost.

I’ve seen Duratracs at 275 70R18 installed by dealerships on 2019 TRD Pro. The only thing is I prefer the wheels to stay close inside the fender/wheel well
