I'd like to put some larger rubber on my 09 2WD Base 5 lug Regular Cab and perhaps some different wheels. I really don't want to lift it, just bigger tires to fill the wheel wells and add a little more ground clearance. I'm thinking 235/75/15" or maybe a 16" wheel. I'd like to run a 7" wide wheel, will it clear the caliper on these trucks? I'm a old guy and would like a wheel which looks old school and sits under the fender w/o excess stick-out. Are the factory wheels hub-centric? An alloy wheel would be great as long as it's something I can run year around, so clear-coat might be a given.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
