    After going back and forth on my opitons I decided and pulled the trigger on this setup. Love the look and feel. Can't wait to add the lift. I also bought a fresh TRD OR wheel to put in the spare spot with another TPMS sensor so in event I need it out on the trail I'll have full sized capable spare and can do 5 wheel rotations to extend tire life. If anyone is looking DT tire matched Walmart's current price of $237. Not a bad price for a 33" E rated tire that alot of people seem to love.

    Next up is the Wescott lift and DOM/TIG sliders.

    Ya, that’s my favorite color. I’m up late dreaming. The rain finally got here.

    I looked at those Falkens at Town Fair Tire. They are popular. yokohama had a buy 3 get 1 free deal in November. ...so went with them instead.

    I plan to spend a great deal of time aired down while off road. I wanted the extra piece of mind of the tougher tire carcass.

    nice. Did you notice any rougher ride on the streen with the 10 ply?

    It's definately a little more firm, but nothing crazy. I can feel tiny bumps in the road a bit more but again, not jarring or enough to ruin the ride. I have no regrets so far and look foward to putting them to use off road.

    If possible be in the car with someone having Load E tires. Some may like it, some may don't. I lost lot of money selling Load E tires to softer tires.

    Agreed. I’d never run them on a vehicle that will live on pavement but for the terrain I plan to go on the small increase in stiffness to the ride is worth it for extra toughness of the tire. There’s always a compromise.

    You experience any rubbing at the stock ride height? I have a 21 ORP and I'm looking at these tires also.

    There's a small amount of rubbing on the front bumper on the drivers side while in reverse...tiny amount. I'm about to install a lift and get it aligned so that should be taken care of shortly. If minor trimming is needed (like on the Pro's) so be it.

    So that tire should fit ok on a stock 2021 Pro with the stock Pro rims? Definitely the set up I am interested in.

    This tire wheel combo is what I’m going with on my “21” ORP, I have the lift on, just haven’t been able to get the tires installed yet. I am just hoping that my tires don’t rub on the remote reservoir. There is talk that they might! So far no rub on the stock tires.

    II would hate to do wheel spacers, because I’m sure I would be doing some trimming, and they will poke further than I want. Or possibilities of different rims if tires rub reservoirs, but I believe this 7.5” wide ORP rim is the widest I would venture on this skinny tire. I mean you have the pro wheels at 7” wide, but still the same 4.5” backspace.

    So really not a lot of wheel options I’m Finding for this skinny tire.

    I would think you'd be fine putting this on a Pro. Not only is there an additional 1" from the Fox suspension, Toyota does a tiny trim on the front bumper already to all Pro models. In my research the 4Runners aren't as sensitive to tire height, but width. Part of the reason I went this route instead of 285's.

    I wanted to run these wheels until they have a enough trail damage that they're unsightly. At which point I'll go with something a bit wider and different offset. I MAY move to 285's at that point, unless the 255's serve me well then I'll just keep with them. Hell...if mine get beat up and I'm happy with how they've performed I may just grab another set of OR take off wheels and do the same setup. I, too, don't like the idea of spacers. I know hubcentric are perfectly fine but it's just one less thing for me to worry about when doing maintenance/safety checks.
