Are you getting new rims? Okay with running wheel spacers? Okay with trimming plastic and possibly chopping your cab mounts?

:conused: The truck comes stock with 31s.

You can run 32s with no issues, even with no lift.

265/70/17, and as for the brand, it's really up to you. Popular AT tires on here include BFG ats, Goodyear duratracs, nitto TGs, and hankook dynapros.

They are very aggressive. A friend of mine had some and they were hard to balance and wore poorly, but did very well off road.

You could probably run 275/70R17 with no issues what so ever or so I've heard. I'm actually about to put 275/70R17 Wrangler AT/S's on mine. They are 32.4 inch tires. The only thing is there are not a lot of options with this tire size.

Please report back as to whether you have any rubbing. Not many folks run 275s so I never know what to tell people who ask about them.
