[Sorry for the double post...I inadvertently started a thread with the wrong title, which I don't think will attract much attention.]

I know tire size has been discussed to death here, but being new to FJs it's challenging to sort through all the data. I had this figured out completely on my Land Rover, but need some help here.

Can someone recommend a taller and skinnier tire size that will fit on a stock FJ with 17" rims?

I like the General Grabber AT2 (have them on my Discovery), which are available in 235/80R17:

Or, there's a wider selection of tires available in the 245/75R17 size:

I know the BFG T/A KOs are great, but anyone running anything else at this size?

I'm looking for something in the solidly A/T category--decent off-road, reasonably comfortable and quiet on the highway.

The 255/85/r17 size is a good fit on a FJ, no lift needed. Anything skinnier than that (10inches) and i think you may run in to trouble on and off road.

I think you might have been thinking of these in the 16" diameter TRD wheels. Not too sure if they make that size in a 17".

You could maybe run those 235/80's, but I would recomend getting some wheel spacers to keep your track a bit wider than it would be with that narrow of a tire.

I have the 255/75/17 BFG MT's on mine and they are great! :bigthumb: I believe the tire is actually 32.05" as well. :lol: That .05'' might be the difference in the sale! :rofl:
