I will be installing ATs this spring 235/65/r17s. I will run my 225s on my aftermarket 17x8s for a month or so before I switch out. Stay tuned

I actually want to do the same thing.
I found the BFG All Terrain T/A K02 and plan to put them on my stock Limited 18" wheels. They are 255/55/R18.
That said, stock tires are 235/55/R18.

Is anyone running 255mm wide tires? And if so, do you have any rubbing issues?
I would not be modifying my suspension - only plan to do the tires..

Thanks!

All Terrain tires

I couldn't imagine there being a significant change.

Here are the spec deltas:

Difference Diameter inches
28.18 vs 29.04
Width inches
9.25 vs 10.04

Minimal impacts to speedo and drivetrain.

These numbers might go plus/minus for the specific tire choice.

Well, I got a price (too high) from the dealer for BFG All Terrain T/A K02's at p255/55R18 today and he balked saying emphatically that they would rub on the front inner fenders and possibly the strut assembly. I didn't debate and the conversation was by email. I don't know that he knows so I am still very interested in what others here find out as they try and go this approx. .9" D and .9" width up from the stock P235/55r18's on the hybrid limited.

OK. Here's a deal. The width of original 235/55/18 of the most tires vary from 9,6 to 9.7 inches. The width of 255/55/18 usually 10.4 which makes 0.8 inch difference. Dividing by 2 we'll get 0.4 inch extra of tire to deal with. I don't think this could be an issue, but you also have to consider the following:
1) You tire will be heavier.
2) With the wider tire's contact surface your gas consumption will go up.
3) The overall diameter of course will also be bigger, which will lead to inaccurate speedometer readings. Overall diameter of 235/55/18 is 28.1 or 28.2 inch depending on tire's brand and 255/55/18 is from 29 to 29.1
Here's a link to calculate the speedometer readings of different tire sizes at different speed:

https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc

In order to stay with the same (original) overall diameter you have to go for 255/50/18 which is 28 to 28.1. In this case your speedometer reading will be more or less accurate.
4) The fitment also depends on your wheel's width and its offset. The lower (30 - 35) offset can easily compensate that 0.4 inch of extra tire inside the space.
Good luck.

Alfa, can you clarify what you mean by the lower offset please? What lower offset are you referring to? Since he was planning on using the stock rims doesn't the offset stay the same? I thought, perhaps mistakenly, that the offset was a function of the rim design and dimensions and not the tire.

The all rims/wheels (whatever you call them) may have different offsets.


The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types (measured in millimeters).*

Zero Offset
The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

Positive
The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

Negative
The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheel's centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.
If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. Often, when changing the width of the wheel, the offset will also need to change to maintain proper clearances inside the wheel well. If the offset were to stay the same while you added width, the additional width would be split evenly between the inside and outside. For most cars, this won't work correctly. We test fit thousands of different vehicle and wheel size combinations to confirm which ones work correctly. Our extensive database allows our sales staff to offer you the perfect fit for your vehicle.
*Backspacing, similar to offset, is the distance from the hub mounting surface to the inside lip of the wheel (measured in inches).

Good luck.

I had a handle on the definition of offset. I was just trying to figure out why you were saying he would have a different, lower, offset by just changing the tires and not changing the rims. My mistake.
