Question: tire size change

I asked this question , Can I put 235/70 R16 on my Tundra (V-8) where it calls for 245/70R16 on the door panel but has 265/70R16s on the vechicle I bought ? You gave me an answer for a Two wheel drive Tundra where mine is 4WD. Thanks for answering!

If 245/70R16 is the factory size, that is what you should use. Will a 235/70 R16 fit? Probably, but it may affect your speedometer reading.

Also if you have ABS you need to have the same size on ALL wheels as ABS activates based on wheel speed and wheels with different tires will have different rolling diameters (different rolling speed at the same vehicle speed)

Your best bet is to contact the dealer to see if that tire is acceptable for your vehicle.
