They look a bit wide for those rims though.

Looks really good man. They look like they fit much better than the 35's on such a big fender well. I'm thinking of doing the same next time I get new tires but I just can't make my mind up.

Its very close on the front bumper but it doesnt touch at all, I was a bit suprised and leary to go with tires that wide but then I remembered the guy I bought it from said he had put turn stops on them so there is no way they could rub I just have even less turning radius now
Looking at my truck I know somebody has had 37's or 38's on there before because the way the plastic front valance on the bumper was cut it matched perfectly.

Yeah I know they are a bit too narrow of a rim, I am on the lookout for some 12" wide rims. Anybody looking to trade? Mine are almost brand new and in mint condition...

I agree!! That looks great!!

If you change to 12" wide wheels, you'll probably get some rubbing then.

Yeah I was afraid of that... Might have to adjust my turn stops but then I will have even less turning radius which already pretty low but hey you do what you gotta do right?

From everything I have heard about the Toyos before I bought them was that they are very very close to the advertised size, I measurer mine today out of curiosity and they came out to be 37" tall but they are about 60% tread and have a bit of the ballooning effect because my wheels really arent wide enough so I think with both of those factors taken away they should be at 38" if not maybe a hair more.
