Re: Tire Size ?

At stock height it will look goofy!
THose tires are 25.5 inches tall compared to the stock ones which are 29 inches tall.

Re: Tire Size ?

I have 265/75/15's (30 inches tall)at stock height and I wish they were taller. It's all about the look you like.

Re: Tire Size ?

I would go no smaller than a 235 75 15 on a stock height truck with stock wheels.

Re: Tire Size ?

You may want to do a search, because there are a couple good threads with pics of different size tires. After some viewing, I went with 31X10.5-15. Just got them on today and love the look.
