    A lot of us don't understand what is happening with tire rub. I found this awesome youtube video that makes it easier for hands on guys like me to understand. And can someone tell me why the hell Toyota made their wheel wells so tight? Stupid cab mount and liners.....when the hell will they get a clue that small tires look gay on Tundras?!!

    Hold the Line! If you are not holding the line, abandon your ship. Destruction is inevitable without more to hold the line!
    My guess is that there is a "technical explanation" for why Toyota chose the wheel well/tire size they did. I do not claim to know what that reason may or may not be. My guess is it has something to do with gas mileage.
