    Just bought a 2018 SR5 with the 16X7 rims i believe (stock?) And would like to have the "meaty" look, where the tire extends out past the wheelwell about 1".
    Will a wider tire on the stock rim give me that look?
    Thanks!

    16x8 with a 4.5 backspace and 0 offset will do that for ya.

    Is that the stock rim or no?

    No, that would be an aftermarket wheel.

    U can be cheap and run wheel spacers.
    Or remove your fender flares.

    255/50/16 would be a good tire to go with on the 16x8 rims?.

    Backspacing/offset talk is basically forign language to me.

    I just want a good looking truck where i dont want to lift it and dont have to worry about rubbibg at full turning radius.

    That would be a 26x10 tire,... you might want to look at a 265/75R16.

    Play with this for a little while...

    The 1st 3 numbers are the width in mm

    2nd numbers are the height of sidewall based on % of the width.... 65= tire will be 65% height of the tires tread width.

    The 3rd number is rim diameter.

    A 255 is narrower than a 265 for instance

    A 265/75/16 is taller than a 265/70/16

    ...And no lift required or rubbing will occur?

    265/75/16 will fit bone stock.... maybe minor rubbing on the worthless mudflaps when turned at full lock.... MAYBE.

    Maybe not as dramatic as that though. Just an inch or so
