Biggest Tires on Stock 4Runner and 4Runner with Lift Kit

34" Toyo Open County AT 2 Tires (285/75R17)

What are the Biggest Tires you can run on 4Runner (Stock, Lift Kit, and Leveling Kit) – Largest Tire Size on 4Runner Explained

We have had a few questions on the biggest tires you can fit on your 4Runner. Asking this question on a forum might get you a few snarky comments, but it is welcomed over here. We got this question for the 10th+ time and figured we should probably write something about it.

If you are asking yourself what the largest tire you can fit on your stock 4Runner is, you will find it here. If you want to know what the largest tire size you can fit with a lift or leveling kit is, we are also going to be covering this.

This should serve as your complete guide to 4Runner tire size and wheel size. If you have any questions about tire size on your stock, leveled, or lifted 4Runner, you are in a safe place. There are no forum trolls on this page waiting to bark at you for asking one of the most common questions in off-road history.

I had these question at one point as well:

  • How big can I go?
  • Do I want to go as large as possible?
  • What are the benefits of going bigger?
  • What are the downsides of going bigger?
  • At what point do I need a BMC (Body Mount Chop)
  • Should I keep my stock wheels?
  • What is the best wheel size for Off-Road use?
  • What are the best All-Terrain tires?

The most common questions about Tire Size:

  • Largest Size Tires on Stock 4Runner?
  • Largest Size Tires with Leveling Kit?
  • Largest Size Tires with Lift Kit?

The best resource out there for checking tire sizes and exact diameter measurements are tirerack.com and Tacomaworld.com (Tire Calculator). You can use both of these websites to check your tire size diameter and height and width to make sure the tire will clear your body mounts, fender liners, and body.

You should always consult with these websites before you go larger on tires. One of the most important aspects of buying new 4Runner wheels is the correct width and offset as well as Backspacing. If you do not do your research on Width, Offset and Backspacing, you will learn how to do a body mount chop and trim multiple areas of your wheel well.

How to Check Tire Size and Wheel Size Fitment (Serious Buying Question)

If you are looking to figure out if a wheel fits a tire size, head over to ToyoTires.com. They have a really good “recommended” wheel size for whatever tire size you enter. Go to ToyoTires.com and enter in your tire size. From there, Toyo will give a list of their tires. Select a tire that you have or are considering and then you will see a section labeled “APPROVED RIM WIDTH RANGE (IN.)”.

This will give you a range of wheel sizes that are compatible with the tire size you enter. From there, you see what wheel sizes will fit that tire. If you do not see your wheel size there, that doesn’t mean it won’t fit. It just means that it is not “recommended”. What does this mean? Maybe the tire company will not warranty the tire if some type of defect occurs. In any case, call your local tire shop for details on this one.

When Choosing Wheels (Specs):

  • Bolt Pattern (5th Gen = 6×139.7mm(5.5″) or 6×5.5)
  • Wheel Bore (5th Gen = 106mm)
  • Offset (-offset pushes the wheel out. +offset pushes wheel into the wheel well)
  • Backspace (Similar to offset – the space between center tire and inside wheel)
  • Rating (Weight rating wheels were designed for)
  • Weight (lb)
  • Lug Type (tapered “conical” and radiused)
  • LipSize (in)

Note: If I were to buy a wheel, I would buy a wheel with at least a -6 offset or higher. Maybe a -10 or higher offset. This is going to push your wheel out of your well which may eliminate the need for wheel spacers, but not always. Those other specs come into play as well.

Stock wheel size on our 5th Gen

  • The SR5 comes stock with 17 x 7, 4.5″ backspace.
  • The TEP (Trail), the TRD Pro, and the TRD Off-Road come with 17 x 7 1/2 and a 4.875″ backspace.
  • The Limited Edition comes with 20 x 7 with a 4.5″-inch backspace. 

Adding Wheel Spacers: When you go to add wheel spacers, this actually may cause more rubbing than before. After we installed our icon stage two suspension kit and threw on our spider tracks wheel spacers, we had more rubbing than before.

Largest Tire Size on 5th Gen 4Runner?

Stock 4Runner?

The short answer is 32″. Our stock 4Runner has a 31″ tire (265/70/17 – 31.61″). Making the jump to a 32″ tire should be fine on stock suspension. You want to make sure this is a smaller 32″ tire and not a larger 32″ tire. Some 32″ tires measure closer to 33″ tires.

For example, a 32.06 is basically a 32″ tire, while a 32.79 is closer to a 33″ tire. If you get a 32″ tire that is closer to 33″, you may end up doing a BMC and other modifications to ensure your tires will not rub without a leveling kit. If you want a larger tire, you should really look into a leveling kit or lift kit, though.

Most owners make the jump to a 33″ tire. Moving up to a 33″ tire requires a leveling kit or a lift kt. If you have a 3″ leveling kit in the front, then moving to a 33″ tire should be fine, but there are 33″ tires that will rub with a leveling kit as well. With 33″ tires and a 3″ leveling kit, you will probably have some rubbing on the fender liners. If you are trying to avoid trimming fender liners, BMC and other areas of the well, stay away from 34″ tires as this will absolutely cause serious rubbing all the way around.

Largest Tire Size with Leveling Kit?

The largest tire size you can run with a leveling kit is entirely up to you. With a 2″ leveling kit, you may still be stuck at 32″ without any modifications like a BMC.

If you move up to a 3″ leveling kit, you may be fine to run a small 33″ tire without any modifications. Again, if you have a 33″ tire that is closer to a 34″, you will likely have to do a BMC and fender liner mods.

If you have a 3″ leveling kit and throw on small or large 33″ tires, you are more than likely going to trim something. Small 33″ tires are probably as big as you want to go unless you want to get into serious adjustments. Which, at the end of the day these adjustments are not hard, they just require some testing and consistent adjusting until you no longer have rubbing.

Largest Tire Size with Lift Kit?

Most owners that have a lift kit are still at the same level of a leveling kit. The basic suspension lift kit for a 4Runner is 3″ – 3.5″. 33″ tires are usually fine without any major modifications, but it also depends on the exact measurements of your 33″ tires.

Small 33″ tires should be fine but if you get into 33.5″ tires or 33.7″ tires, you will need to do some adjustments.

With 33″ tires, you still always run the risk of a BMC, fender liner mods and actually trimming off parts of your body. Just keep in mind, that if you go with 33″ and up, you will probably have some adjustments to make.

We have 34″ tires with a 3″ Icon suspension lift. We had to do numerous modifications to our 4Runner.

Common examples with a 3″ leveling or lift  kit:

  • 275/70R17s (32.16″): Rubbing unlikely
  • 285/70R17s (32.71″): Fender liners, BMC likely, body trimming optional, rocker caps questionable.
  • 285/75R17s (33.8″): Prepare to trim and chop everything.

With 33.8″ (34″) tires, we had to chop our body mounts, push back our fender liners, slice big sections off of our fender liners, slice sections off our rocker panel caps, and we had to cut new lines in our 4Runner’s body. It was a lot of work to get things to work.

Once you get your 34″ tires to comfortably fit inside your wheel well, wow. The results are amazing. Just make sure you have an adjustable suspension like the Icons, Toytec Boss, KINGS or any others so you have more flexibility in your adjustments.

Do I want to go as large as possible?

Not always. Going with the biggest tire you can mean that you need to cut your body mounts, trim your fender liners and cut into your 4Runner’s body. If that is something you are interested in doing, then, by all means, go all out. If we could have gone larger than 34″ tires, we would have.

What are the benefits of going big?

Having bigger tires allows you to clear more obstacles off-road. With larger tires on your 4Runner, you have more grip on all types of terrain. There is a huge difference between 33″ tires and 34″ tires when you are off-road. I have had 31″ tires, 33″ tires and 34″ tires and with 34″ tires, everything is easier. It also depends on the driver and how much experience you have. Also airing down your tires has a big impact on what you can do and what you can clear.

What are the downsides of going big?

Gas mileage and trimming 4Runner liners and plastics. When you make the jump to 34″ tires, you will see a decline in gas mileage. Even if you regear (change the gearing ratio), you will still see a slight decrease in gas mileage with larger tires.

The good happy-medium tire size is probably 33″. With 33″ tires, you can still trek just about anywhere you want off-road while still maintaining some decent MPGs.

When you add larger tires, you are forcing the factory gearing ratio to turn more times in order to turn your wheel. You are also creating higher RPMs when forcing those tires to turn. With 33″ tires, re-gearing is debatable. With 34″ tires, gearing is probably recommended but not needed.

At what point do I need a BMC (Body Mount Chop)

This all depends on what lift kit or leveling kit you have. In most common cases, you will want to go with 33″ tires. With 33″ tires, you need a 3″ lift in order to avoid a BMC, but not always. Once you go to 33″ tires, you should do a body mount chop just in case.

If you only have a 2″ leveling kit with 33″ tires, you will likely need to do a BMC for sure.

With 34″ tires and a 3″ lift or level, you will need to do a BMC, trim your fender liners, push back your fender liners and cut into your 4Runner’s body. Aftermarket UCAs (Upper Control Arms) are also recommended but not always needed. It really depends on your exact wheel size.

Should I keep my stock Wheels?

Always a good option. There is nothing wrong with keeping your stock wheels and making the jump to bigger tires. The stock 17″ wheels are great for on-road and off-road use. Moving to an aftermarket wheel is only more expensive and often times, more confusing.

If you are a first-time owner and not sure about aftermarket wheels, just grab a new set of larger tires and go experience what your 4Runner has to offer.

What is the best Wheel Size for Off-Road Use?

Typically, the smaller the wheel size, the better your off-road performance will be, but not always. When it comes to our world, 17″ wheels are probably your go-to size. You want to stay away from 20″ wheels on your 4Runner if you plan on frequent off-road trips.

When it comes to a smaller wheel size, you can air down the tire pressure further than you can with a 20″ wheel. Having less air pressure in your tires means your tire will have more flotation and grip the terrain much easier than at full PSI.

With less air pressure, the ride will be smoother and less bumpy, all while gripping the terrain much more efficiently.

What are the best All-Terrain Tires?

The section of copy came from another post we wrote on Mods (Part 1). All tires are based on a 285/70R17 (32.71″ tire). Always check prices online Vs. your local tire shop. If online is cheaper, just have them shipped to your tire shop.

$100-$200/ per tire

  1. Yokohama Geolandar: $120+ (Light tread depth)
  2. Firestone Destination: $120-$150+
  3. General Grabber: $120-$170+
  4. Nitto Terra Grapplers: $150+ (Common – Check Price)
  5. Toyo Open Country: $150+
  6. Cooper Discoverer: 150+
  7. Falken Wildpeak: $170+ (Common – Check Price)

$200-$500/ per tire

  1. Cooper Discoverer STT Pro: $240+ (Common – Check Price)
  2. BF Goodrich KO2: $250-$350+ (Common – Check Price)
  3. Toyo Open Country AT 2: $260+ (What I have – Check Price)
  4. Toyo Open Country MT 2: $260+
  5. Goodyear Duratrac: $270+ (I want these – Check Price)

Great write up. I purchased the Dobinsons 2.5″ front and 1″ rear lift kit. Do you think 285/70/17s K02s will fit without rubbing? I didn’t want to go 3″ in the front to stay away from changing upper control arms. Also, I wanted a very level looking lift. There is a ~2″ rake on my 2019 TRD Premium.

Your post made it seem unsure if modding the BMC and fender liner mod is needed.

I am looking at the 285/70/17 BFG KO2 A/Ts and was wondering if the TRD suspension might give me enough clearance, so the fit would go from “Questionable (BMC Might Be Needed)” to “Won’t Rub”?

I want a big enough lift to fit 275 BFG KO2s, no crazy off-roading but mild to moderate. I didn’t know if I should just go Bilstein 5100 set at 1.75 and 1 inch rear spacer or something bigger to fit that tire. Do you have any advice?

Thanks so much for putting this information together. Honestly, as soon as I became a 4Runner owner I was so excited to get on the forums and jump in. All to find out how bitter everyone seemed about TRD owners. I’m super thankful to find this information. Been looking forever. Everyone in the forums says you can find it if you look, but I’ve looked everywhere and this is the first place I’ve ever found it spelled out clearly, and respectfully. Thanks so much for that! This article answered so many questions I’ve had. So glad I don’t have to… Read more »

I second this opinion a 100% as I approach becoming a 4Runner TRD Off-Road owner myself.
Been reading the forums and though I may keep reading them I doubt I’ll be posting any questions there any soon. Can’t understand why there are so many disrespectful people that delight on making fun on other’s lack of knowledge. Keep these articles coming, please! I thank you for your work.

Stock 2015 SR5. I want to run 275/70/17. What offset would I need on a 17×8.5″ wheel to run these tires without rubbing? Or is it not possible? I’m thinking a 00 offset or maybe even a small positive offset.

Without having to lift or change suspension on my truck and use factory 20 inch wheel it came with. I just want to know what is the biggest per this particular application, and know one not even the dealer can tell me, thank you.

Thanks for putting this together. I have a stock SR5 I’m putting some TRD Pro suspension in shortly (may be upgrading springs anyway to offset weight of roof rack with tent and bike rack on rear), and really want to do the 255/80/17. Where will this tall skinny tire be causing issues?

This is great info! But I’m lost, my first rodeo…Just bought my first 2018 sr5, I’m going for a tire that fills the wheel well without rubbing and get a little width. I want a AT tire that’s not too loud. What’s the best look?

Few questions:
1. Did you regear? if so, when did you do it and how long did you wait before doing it. 4.56 or 4.88?
2. If not, how is it so far and how long has it been?
Thinking of going to 34’s. I don’t mind the trimming and I’m getting a BMC soon anyway. 35’s are just TOO much work.
Thanks!

Buying a New 2018 off road premium as we speak, They are upgrading the wheels to the trd black 17″ and i asked for 275/70r17 BFG ko2 AT, just confirming this will fit with no issues on the stock suspension? Or I can always lift it 3″ and get even bigger tires, but that would be overkill as I’m a road queen.

If i were to get the 2.5 leaving lift or 3” lift, what size bfg would you recommend ? Or should I just keep it stock height with the 275/70/17 bfgs?

Really enjoy your site and find it informative, helpful, and fun. I even use it as a reference for my Tundra, as most tundra websites are more focused on massive lifts and tires vs functional trail driving. We recently got a new 2018 SR5 4Runner 4×4 for my wife so that we could split up our off-road & snow trips. Your site was a great reference tool as we started our build. The first thing we did was put BFG Ko2 275 /70/17’s on with TRD wheels. Looked great with the stock suspension but rubbed at full turn on the… Read more »

Taller tires will lower RPM, not raise them. At highway speeds, you’ll probably increase gas mileage.

Long time 2006 4Runner owner but new to the lift world as of today. Had a 2″ leveling kit installed with Bilstein 5100 Series Front/Rear shocks. Currently running old 265/R65/17 Big O Big Foot tires that are in sore need of replacement anyway and look too small now for the lift. I’d like to have a bigger tire using my stock rims. What size tires would you recommend? 275/70/17 (BFG All Terrain T/A K02 for example), 285/65/17, or 285/70/17’s and that avoids rubbing/modifications?

Awesome site for this noob! Thx!

Ok, so I read all of this and have a much better understanding now, thank you! However, I still have a question because I am looking at the new Nightshade edition, and that comes with 20×7.5 stock wheels. I am wanting to put 275/55/20 KO2 on it, but dont know if it will rub because of the extra 1/2″ on a stock xreas suspension. Please help!

I would like to know the best tire for a stock 2011 4Runner limited. Tire size 275/55/20. I ran Goodyear wranglers in the same size for 50 thousand miles and they’re great tires but uncomfortable. I had them balance it as well as could be and still have a lot of shaking in steering wheel around 55-65 mph. Any advice would be great before I buy some new ones for this season. Thanks

Hope you can advise. Have a 2013 Limted and want an All Terrain tire that the 20×7″ rims can’t handle. Have had the BFGoodrich AT KO2 on previous Jeep GC and 2001 4Runners so that is what i look at first. Thinking of new 18″ wheels, and the chart is very helpful with tire size options that won’t rub, but no idea on width or in chart what “space needed” referrs to?

I am putting a 6112 / 5140 Blistein Lift & Icon 2″ Springs for the rear on my 2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Premium. Was going for the lifted and level look and to stop the nose dives….Was looking to go with the Cooper SST Pro’s and in 265/70/17….Would this look good with this lift and tire?? Was also considering 275/70/17, but don’t know what to get. Cooper doesn’t make this for the SST Pro so would need a different make if I go this route. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

Great information here, I have a pretty good idea of what I can and can’t do now. I just wanted some clarification before I went into it. I have a stock 89 4runner, wanted to put it on 17’s with -12 offset. Later in the season I plan on installing a 2″ OME lift and setting her on 35’s. I don’t have the time for that now and need tires. So my question is can I fit 32’s on 17’s with out substantial rubbing or no rubbing at all? Recommendations welcome, tha is for your time! 🙏

Tobin
Guest

IIRC, I ran 32×11.50×15 on my 1987 4Runner years ago. I don’t recall any major rubbing. But I think anytime we toy with going up in size, we need to be prepared to live with rubbing as a possibility and/or options on what to do when it does. I just put 285’s on my 2011 4R and it rubs slightly. My wife and I were prepared and I know what my options are.

I have read the articles over and over and don’t see much information on anything greater than 3″ lifts. That said, am i capable of purchasing a 5″+ lift and fit under there something close to 35 or even 35’s? Or will this require a major BMC and mods to get them under there?

Brenan,
I would like to know if you think I could run Duratrac 285/70 17″ on our 2019 TRD Pro with out any modifications or rubbing issues. I don’t know if the TRD Pro setup will allow.
Thanks

We just bought our first 4Runner and I’m super glad I found this site. Professional, down to earth, respectful and someone, obviously, proofreads before they publish. 🙂 With that said, I’m a newbie (Better to be a newbie than a never!) and with “newbieness” comes ignorance. Therefore, I beg your indulgence. After reading your post about maximum tire sizes I’m considering going with a conservative 275/70/17 tire. I want to put them on bead lock wheels that I’ll swap out with my stock tire/wheel combo before hitting the trail. Q1: Do I understand the article to suggest that 275/70/17 tires… Read more »

My tire place in town won’t mount tires on my Ultra Phantom wheels I purchased online. They are saying that every 4Runner they put tires on with aftermarket rims hasbhd vibration issues. Has anyone had any problems with this? Also the rims I purchased are 17×8 with a +1 offset. They are also telling me this won’t work. Any thoughts?

Hello Brenan: I have a 2019 4Runner Limited. I want to change to the 275/55/R20 all-terrain tire. I haven’t chosen which wheel to fit. Can I help recommend the size parameters? No friction

I’m wondering if I can replace the stock wheel-tire setup on my 2019 4Runner Limited to Toyota’s 7×17 TRD wheel with General Grabber ATX 265/70/17, without having to modify the fenders, etc.?

Thanks
Charlie

A local tire shop gave it a try, but they did rub and so they took them off. They are ordering a set of Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws 275/75/17s. They are a virtual exact size match, on a 7×17 wheel with 4mm offset, for the OEM 20-inch wheels (15mm offset) and stock Yokohama Geolandar G96B all-season tires.

Wow this is the best googles I’ve done yet even I picked some stuff up here. I am stuck in a 2wd for the next year or so and my highway rain tires need changed out pretty soon. Florida swamp mud no climbing just wet soggy fields, creek crossings and such. Any suggestions on the tires I might put on here for best offroading until I can go 4wd? Set up currently with a 2010 4Runner 2wd, P265 70 R17 Bridgestone Dueler HT. Thanks

I have a 2018 TRD Offroad with KDSS, and I just put on the King kit from Toytec set to 2in. I have Wrangler Duratrac 265/70/17 on stock wheels, and now they look tiny. I was hoping to go bigger, but this sounds like the biggest size I could do is 275/70/17. That’s only going from 31.6 to 32.2 (and the duratrac isn’t available in that size). Will that even be noticeable? So are there any guesses about what else I could do and what might be involved? I don’t mind a few mods to fit tires, but I don’t… Read more »

Mark, I just finished a 3″ toytec lift on my trail without kdss and I have 305/70/17 on the stock wheels. I made no BMC or modifications except the removal of my mud flaps. I did originally go with the 285/70/17 but they were to small and looked like an F250 out of factory. I had Cooper STT Pro and ended up with KM2’s. Personally I would stick with the TRD wheels as those are really nice, try the 285/70/17. Remember Discount Tire has a 30 day return/exchange period, I took advantage of that. The dimensions of the 285/70/17 are… Read more »

I got a 18 Trd ORP with stock suspension. Port already cut the front bumper to make the trd pro wheels fit. I want to get some 18×9 +0 wheels and can’t decide to either go 275/65/18 or 265/65/18 tires. Any suggestions? Not trying to hack up my brand new fender liners.

First off, how did you get them to cut the front bumper at the Port (if I’m correctly understanding you to mean the Port of Delivery)? … Anyway, assuming you’re now running the stock 265/70/17 tires on the 17×7 TRD Pro wheels, then a 275/65/18 tire, on an 18×9 wheel with 0 offset, would be ¹⁄₁₆” closer to suspension components and the rim would be ²⁷⁄₃₂” closer to suspension components. As for the tires and fenders, each tire will stick out ³⁄₈” farther than what you have now, and each rim will stick out 1 ⁵⁄₃₂” farther than the TRD… Read more »

I didn’t get them to cut the bumper. Toyota cut them before I took delivery. I looked inside and you can see where they shaved off the front inner bumper. My car had the xp predator package that came with the trd wheels. Yes, I have the 265/70/17 wrangler dura tracs on there now. I decided to go 275/65 and live with the fender liner/mud guard rubbing if it happens. I will install and report back! Thanks for your help!!

Hi guys, Struggling a little bit right now with finding the right tire to work with my vehicle. So I’ve gone to a bunch of off road shops around my area and inquired with them and seem to still be a bit confused… So here it is. I have a 2016 sr5 runner and I’m getting close to get everything put on, here’s what I got. Icon lift kit with 2.5 extended travel coil overs in the front with upper control arms. 2.0 struts in the rear with the 3” Springs. So in total going to be doing a 3”… Read more »

Wow. Your a busy man. And you answer everything! I have a 2019 TRD Off-road, I’m install a Dobinson 2.5 lift on the front, and 2 inch on the rear. Keeping my stock wheels, have decided to run a 255 x75x17 tire, not sure what just yet. Think I should be fine not rubbing, what are your thoughts? Probably going to replace my spare also, will it fit?
