Here's a few shots for reference. I just put some new 235/85 r16 BFG AT's on the truck. Truck is all stock (for now). No problems with rubbing, and traction has been excellent with the packed snow and ice we've had here recently.

Love it. If I ever get a newer Tacoma, I will do the same with stock suspension.

Do you have any pictures of it almost straight on from the front that you could post? From the side and with the mudflaps it looks remarkably similar to a 265/75/16 :elkgrin:

hi, i was wandering how your fuel mpg's are now that you have the 235's on? i put 235 cooper st maxx's on my '01 dc and lost about a 1.5 mpg. thanks

You probably didn't lose that much. Are you compensating for the change in your speedo? Use a gps to check your speed, then calculate how much it's off by. I went to 33x10.50's, Mine is off by about 7-8%.

Example, 310 miles traveled, 310 x .07 =21.7 so 310 + 21.7 = ~332

So, if my truck says I've gone 310 miles, I fill up with 18 gallons, that's ~ 17.2 mpg

actual miles traveled - 332 / 18 = 18.4.


On my last trip, I went from Cedar City, UT to Flagstaff, AZ in one tank. When I calculated my mileage from the ODO, it was like 17.5 mpg. Then I got on Google maps on my iPhone, dropped a pin on the map at the exact gas station where I filled up, then at the gas station where I filled up in Flagstaff. I calculated like 19.5 mpg.

Not that he shouldn't compensate for his tire size, but I also lost 1.5 mpg by putting on the Cooper ST Maxx's. I run a TruSpeed Recalibrator on the Tundra and it is spot on at 65mph. I also just read an article on the ST Maxx and the author also noted a mileage loss......
