Tire Upgrade ?

I admit that I'll probably just keep the same spare ... 265/60/20 and 285/65/18 are within a millimeter or two so that seems fine?
im just OCD like that. I'm still annoyed that my Tundra didnt come with a matching spare
 
Other than looks why did you change wheels?
Should the tires rub with stock FE wheels?
What brand tires did you go with
I went with different wheels because my wife did not like the stock ones!

No idea.

We need more photos at different angles ; )

More angles...

Curious on your thoughts after you've had more time to drive it: 1) are the road manners more harsh with a load E tire and 2) is it more sluggish, and assume less MPG. Hard to baseline those comparisons with only 300 miles pre new tires, but curious nevertheless.
I've another couple hundred miles on it. About 50 of those were on forest service roads. I don't find the road manners more harsh, the height between 245 to 275 is definitely noticeable. It may be a bit more sluggish, but not significantly. The mileage is pretty terrible before and after the new tires in my opinion. The best I've gotten on a ~10 mile trip is 22mpg according to the computer. I saw that the tires would throw off the mph and computer by 1.054. If I'm doing the math correctly, my best trip would be adjusted to just over 23mpg.

Here it is
Icon Alloy Recon SLX 18x9 +40 offset
Falken Wildpeak AT4W: load range C, 285/70/r18 33.7 or Falken claims 34”

I took it over into the desert by my house and tried to get some rub but never felt or heard anything. Here are some quick photos I grabbed but I would say, success!

My LC has OEM 245/70/18 tires. I am considering 265/70/18 Nito Rridge Grapplers and my question will these work with my stock LC?

Looks like a 7” wheel is an acceptable width for those, and 33” shouldn’t be too tall so I’m thinking you are in good shape

My FE came with Nitto Ridge Grapplers 265/70/18. Apparently Southeastern Toyota is installing these at port.

question for @Dragoon - did you need to use different lug nuts for this install? I'm trying to get everything sorted ahead of time before my LC shows up ... thanks for any info you have
It isn't his vehicle :( I already asked him about it.

The thread pitch and length of the studs on the Land Cruiser is identical to the Tundra/Sequoia. You can use your OEM lug nuts with no problem.
