So I've finally decided what 3in. suspension kit I'm going to get (mainly from info on the this site) and I want to get the kit and the tires on at one time once I save up the cash and the truck is due for new tires. But I've run into a problem..I have no idea what size tires will work for what I need, I have been reading everything I can find on here but I am still clueless. I found this article on expo portal and I want to build my truck up like they have, as in simple, reliable and keeping as many things as close to stock as possible to keep the truck working as it was designed to.
" It is recommended that the tire height not increase more than two-inches larger than the largest standard tire for that vehicle in stock configuration. It is also recommended that the tire width increase be limited or if possible, kept at the same width as stock. This will allow full compression travel and full turning radius. Select the tread design based on the environments you will likely be traveling in. Match the load rating to GVWR and ensure that only LT (Light Truck) tires are use"
I like the look of 255/85/16 size tires that are on such trucks as Barlowrs and Tacovendor's, but I want to look at more options before I commit to anything. So in your opinion what tire sizes would suit the "overland" look the best?
