    I have a 2023 4Runner Off Road on order. I plan on changing out the rims and tires upon arrival for something more aggressive looking. I don’t want to do any trimming and a lift is out of the question. I think that limits me to 275s. Being in the great white North, winter performance is critical. Beyond that, 17”, 18” rims? Negative offset? Sidewall size? Accepting all input. Lift is out of the question because my wife is very short and will already struggle to get into it.

    You'll want a tire with a 3 peak mountain snowflake rating. A lot of AT's have this, but not all.

    From what I've noticed, aggressive shoulder lugs or sidewall tread will stand out even more than going up a size. Here's mine when it was stock after I put on stock size KO2's.

    Do yourself a favor and choose wheels that stay in the neighborhood of +15mm offset.

    @Thatbassguy thats a great look. I’ve never been a white letter guy but that photo has me reconsidering.

    They're certainly polarizing to some folks. I think they work on some vehicles.

    THIS.

    When I went from the stock Bridgestones to the same sized General ATX all terrains, I thought they had gone up a size, they looked so much bigger.

    Most of the 275 choices are much heavier and more expensive than a 265, I really see no reason to go 275.

    Stock vs AT, same size:

    Exactly the advice I’m looking for. Those tires look great. Thanks.

    Helpful. Thank you. In everything I’ve read nobody has pointed out the cost jump to go to 275s.

    I agree with Trail runnah on his advice including the detail of the KO2s. I had those on my FJ and they are without a doubt the best tires I have ever bought. I originally bought them because of the look of the aggressive sidewall but was very pleasantly surprised with the ride and the durability.

    I’ve been very satisfied with the OEM Pro rims. Don’t have to worry about fitment issues.

    All great advice above^^^^

    I went to 275’s on a previous 4R and was sorely disappointed. Wouldn’t do it again. Almost all 275’s are E load range which makes them not a comfortable ride if you’re not off roading a lot. They also weigh a LOT more than 265’s in P or SL load range.

    Edit: Your OEM rims will be just fine but, if you insist on changing them, like Slopemaster, I suggest looking at the newer Pro rims. Won’t introduce any offset issues nor the need for any trimming, etc. If you do that, suggest you get five of them so spare is same size. Got my spare from BAM wholesale.

    Don’t you mean -15mm offset?

    According to this page the stock wheel offset for SR5’s and ORP’s is +15. The offset for the TRD Pro wheels is +4. TRD Pros receive a fender trimming to accommodate 265/70R17 tires without rubbing. Hence my advice. Maybe I’m missing something. I often do.

    Well I’d say keep as close to 0 offset as possible. Not too many aftermarket wheels will be +15. Plus a little more aggressive looks so much better. Stock size tires shouldn’t require much if any trimming. On my 2018 I ran pro wheels with spacers before buying SCS wheels. With the spacers I had to trim. Before that the Pro wheels had zero body contact.
