    Im wondering if anyone has experience running this tire size on a stock TRD AC 4x4. I know what the tire size thread says about max size but it seems like most people are running larger than what’s recommended. Any input or pictures would be appreciated.

    I used to run them on my 2000 limited TRD access cab 4x4. I didn't have any problem,but I did install a leveling kit up front. I went back to 265/70/16 tires. just a preference.

    So in short, I won’t have any problems running 265/75 on stock suspension?

    I’m still wondering what you meant by preference? I guess I would just like to know why stock size over slightly larger. Is it just so minimal there’s no point?

    The 265/70/16 tires are a little wider but probably 3/4" shorter than the 265 /75/16. The 265/75/16 tires are more narrow than the 70 series but they are taller than the 70 series.that's what I mean by preference.hope that helps
