    I might just slap my 225 70 15's on there. They still have some good tread. Working on getting the rims cheaper because I cant use the tires. We will see

    Make sure those wheels even fit your truck.

    You know the back spacing or the lug pattern? Not all five lug wheels fit all five lug axles. Not all six lug wheels fit six lug axles.

    Well, I'm only saying because I have the MB wheel style and that I run that tire size personally, and have a 5 lug.

    MB makes 5 lug wheels in 3 or 4 different bolt patterns and a half dozen different backspacings.

    And 205/65-15?

    Now, understanding that your speedometer is ALREADY about 6% fast, these tires will move that up by another 8%.... When your speedo reads 70 you'll be doing only 60, but you'll still be racking up 70 miles every hour on your odometer.
    Nice to know that when you blow past your warranty, you'll actually have fewer miles on the truck.

    And seriously... the stock 215/70's look horrible in the wheelwells. Those 205s will look like little donuts.

    Discount tire's site shows that the Alpina 15x7 5-lug (5x100/114) in 38mm backspacing will fit.
