I am going to be selling my original tires from my TB in a few weeks, they only have 1200 miles on them. Not sure how much the price would be yet but if you are interested let me know.

what makes you think i did not check already? thanks for the warning but i know how things go on most forums and i tried searched and didnt come up with what i was looking for.

https://forums.trailvoy.com/search.php?searchid=2017728

if you find it there please tell me. i found info on 255/70 17, 255/65 17, 255/55 17

im 99% sure it will work because all of the above have worked with no problem minus the 255/70 17(worked with slight grinding to upper control arm) but i guess i just wanted someone with more expertise with tire sizing then i do to chime in. maybe a picture or two would help?

If your stock size is 245/65-17 then the 255/60-17 would be:

- .4" shorter in height
- roughly a 1/2" wider

TBSS which sits 1" lower comes with 255/50R20 which dimensionally is nearly identical dimensions to the 255/65R17, and 265/50R20 fits so you should be more than ok with that size.

i've been running 255/60/R17 for over 4 years now. With no issues. The speedo will be a little off since the tire is slightly smaller in diameter, but barely noticeable.

255/60r17

The TB tires specs in middle east gulf countries are 255/60R17. I have been driving on those for more than 8 years. The speedo will be below actual speed but it would be more stable.
