What size tires do you think the Land Cruiser will come with?
 
I'm hesitant to say that the standard new Land Cruiser will come with a 33-inch tire, but I bet they have an upgraded trim level that does.
 
Sadly, most likely only the Trailhunter variants will come with the 33-inchers. It would sure be nice, as presently with the 4-Runner Limited, one could bundle in the optional wheels for tires more suitable for off-roading, and in my case, winter ice/snow.
 
I hope we see the same tire that's on the Overtrail GX550 - 33" Toyo Open Country ATIII (265/70r18)

I had those Open Countyโ€™s on my 2018 Tundra and loved them. Smooth and relatively quite on road and good traction off-road. Thats what I would put on.
 
I'm not too worried about the stock tires.
Presently, 245/70R18 all-season for the 1958, and 265/70R18 all-season for the Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser First Edition models. Street tires! DISAPPOINTING!

I agree. At least it's an easy swap. I'll probably go with the Falken WILDPEAK A/T3W tires right away.

I'm sure it helps Toyota set a lower entry price for the vehicle and allows the purchaser the ability to modify it to suit their needs.
 
Has anyone found out the width of the stock wheels? I am guessing they are going to be narrow, but I would like to know what I'm working with. Do I need to swap tires, or tires and wheels?
 
I wouldn't mind going down to 17's and getting more rubber to get to 33-inch, but I need width to do that.
 
I used a tire calculator for the Land Cruiser's 265/70R18 tire and here are the dimensions.

Diameter: 32.6"
Width: 10.4"
Sidewall: 7.3"
Recommended wheel width: 7-9"

With that info, I'm going to guess that the stock Land Cruiser wheel is 7-8" wide. Hopefully, Toyota will release the full specs soon.
 
Toyota is good at selecting tires for optimal value and fuel efficiency. Iโ€™m not interested in the stock 20 inch option, and both 18 inch options are on the lighter end of the spectrum. Iโ€™m also searching for tires that are not the heaviest or lightest available.

I have General Grabber A/Ts on my Jeep (white letters out) and they are awesome. I expect to see a resurgence of white letter A/T tires on the new Land Cruiser. I can definitely imagine some right-sized white letter A/T tires on my LC 250 in Ice Cap.

Are you getting good wear out of those? My Tundra has a history of really chewing through tires. I'm currently on Falken Wildpeak A/T3W's and I've been quite happy with them. But they are expensive here in Canada.

I have 13,000 miles so far without any noticeable wear. I have the spare in the rotation program which I plan to replicate on the LC 250. I tend to replace tires well before the warranty wear levels; a mid-level tire with lots of tread is better than an expensive/heavy worn out tire. The General Grabbers seem to be a good balance between value, performance, and durability. The General Grabbers do pick up and fling stones more than other tires Iโ€™ve had however.

The Falkens are no different in terms of the stones. Probably my only complaint.

I have run General M/Ts for the last 15 years. Red letters, now X3s.
I would love to see some light gray wheels (white letters out) on a two tone Land Cruiser.

This is the thinking. Anyone that cares what tires they run will likely have a strong opinion on what brand and size they want. Some people want the biggest/widest tires made under a 6" lift. Some want 35" pizza cutters on a 3" lift (me). Some people swear by BFG's, some people hate them (me again).

I think a lower target MSRP was a non-negotiable bullet point when Toyota set out to develop this truck. Knowing the majority of buyers will immediately swap tires anyway, they probably put the money into other things.
