Nermind on the 30.6" tires. I found another spot where 30.6s would rub on the rear fender, about 2/3 through the turning arc. Sitting level, with the wheel turned about 2/3 to lock, there is only about 3/4" between my 29.2" tires and the fender liner. So, yeah, ~30" tires are probably the max without rubbing (and no trimming) even during street driving, with a near-factory offset.

Ah! Well sweet! Thanks for the update. What offset are your wheels? Also, have you ever had any rubbing with your tires, which are actually a hair over 30"?

Question

I was thinking of getting those Falken wildpeaks tires. I am wondering if they would be fine for city driving all year round ? How do they handle for everyday driving in the city, would you recommend them for that purpose ?

I am planning on the Wildpeaks as well. I know they are quite popular as very good AT tires without the BFG proce tag. You might lose a small bit of efficiency, but they shouldnt be very loud compared to the stock street-centric tires, and would certainly give about the best offroad traction on most anything but mud.

Just to follow up on my own thread, I ended up ordering a set! These aren't the actual wheels, but the ones I got are black. 16x7.5, +34 offset, and 255/70R16 ATs. If 16x7.5 KMCs fit with no issues, these should be just fine as well!

Graphical representation attached. I'll post final pics when they are installed in a couple weeks!

Hrmm. Yeah I have had some issues uploading them from my phone, but I am able to view the attachments. I do not know how to embed the image into the post, though; I need to figure out the garage functions of this forum..

But yes, the factory 19s are 235/55r19, or 29.2". The new ones are 255/70r16, or 30.1".

Got the 16s on!

There could actually be enough room around the brakes to clear 15s. However, there is barely a 1/4" between the rim and the lower part of the strut mount that sits inside the rim. So, they would have to be ground down to fit 15s.

Overall, I definitely think the 16s and bulgy tires look much less refined than the factory wheels and tires, but overall I am happy with them! I found some highly-marked import tires for super cheap so I jumped on those, but next time I might go ahead with the Wildpeak AT3Ws for their mlre square shoulder.

The whole setup was $920 installed.

The actual treadwidth is probably the same as my 235s, to be honest, but the bulgy part sticks out about 3/4" more than the factory setup. There is still a surprising amount of tire clearance as well. I have really felt around, but the part I was most concerned about at the rear of the fender with the wheel turned still has over a half inch. I think, however, that more squared-off tires would cut that distance down.

Nice!!! Looks good. Almost makes me want to try to fit 265/70/16 I wonder how much modifying would have to be done to the fender liner.
