5 lug tire size.

Alright let's get this straight guys.

The largest tires that can go on with no lift and no rubbing without removing the Black Box is 235/75/15?

If you remove the black box. The largest tire size is 30x9.5/15 with no lift and no rubbing?

How much is this going to kill my MPG? I had and 1982 & 1983 Toyota SB 4x4 w/ 4.11 gears and installed 33x12.50 and that gave me about 12 to 13 mpg. Until I had 4.88 gears installed.

if your gonna lower a truck keep it stock sized tires or smaller. going bigger is kinda bringing the ride height back up so pretty pointless imo

Your axle is an 8.4 keep an eye out on the tw classifieds for someone selling the 4.10s out of their 6 lug. The black box is in the front fender well behind the fender liner and when you put bigger tires they tend to rub they are for the mud flaps i think. What size wheel are you trying to run?

Any tire equivalent to about 28-30 inches would fill the fenders stock height. And for gears try east coast gear supply
