    anybody running that size?im thinking of getting them due to using the stock wheels.they r a 33/10.50/16 and im assuming they will not rub my ucas.being a 10.50 like the 265 70 16 that r stock.it seems everyone runs a 285/75/16 which is a 33/11.50/16.any imput would be great.thanks

    Me thinks you're OK, but PM Xtreme450 as I'm 99% sure that's what he is running.

    and yes delmarva i like pizza cutters.they work really well on tractors to.not that my truck is a tractor but u get the idea.i just always liked a tall skinny tire.less road drag = better mpg.thanks though for the imput.its always good.

    Anyone have thoughts on these tires with 2.5 in front and tsb in rear ? Stock UCA's. Tires and their fitment make my head hurt,lol.I do not mind some trimming and such.

    O sorry to thread jack,

    What are the uca's everyone keeps saying are a clearance issue for larger tires?

    wat?
    upper control arms. the aftermarket uca's dont stick out as much, thus adding better clearance for rims/tires
