265/75/16???

Nitto terra grapplers. I can get a nice deal on these new and was told i can crank up the front t bar to add an inch or so to the front and help with the fit? Any other fitment or performance issues with this tire and size on my truck. 2002 off road package with the stock tires being 245/75/16....thanks

yes, crank them and you're good. (it measure to be 32 X ~10.5 X 16)

i would recommend a wider rim though.

you could fit em without cranking but having an extra inch or so crank will let em clear better and it will look nicer, 16x7 wheel will do ya good, you could also go for a 16x8, i just think the 7inch wide looks better

im just getting a good deal at this place on the tires for now. they are more of a rally crazy shop and are really good guys. but they are into huge lifts and big wheels with even bigger tires. I know one of there bigger trucks has 22s on it and 40 inch tires and they have 24s on there super duty. With big tires as well. They want me to do terra grapplers wrapping some black 20s. I just dont wanna drop that kinda cash on anything. I wouldnt mind an 18 for some style but i really like the look of my stock wheel. It seems to be a more rare style than most others, so is it gonna be a safe fit or a no-go?

No fitment issues at all...Pretty much all 16" tires are hella expensive. I got these used for $150....they run $180 each new. Here's a pic of my truck with about an inch crank and 75% tread 265/75R16s....

999999% of the time you do not need a crank on 265's usually recommended for leveling purposes

Ok so how much will these tires throw off your speedo? I am thinking about getting 265/70/16 for my truck cause they are just as expensive as my stock 245/75/16. I am looking at something a little bit bigger and dont require to much work to make them fit.
