    Mods, I hope this is okay I posted it here. I figured it would get more looks but I do see this a lot!

    Okay, so I currently have the stock 265/70/16 bfg rugged trails and they have 20,045 miles on them. I ordered some 265/75/16 bfg all terrain tires for $665.00 shipped (after $60 rebate) from discount tire as they price matched onlinetires.com. (I couldn't beat it!!) I didn't "need" the tires but really couldn't pass up this deal as it saved me over $200.

    Well, they arrived today after ordering Monday and I immediately wanted to see how much bigger they were than the stock ones. The pics aren't the greatest but I wanted to give you all an idea. They are definitely taller than what I am currently running so I am pleased about that. I just have to decided whether I want to install these on the rims I have now or do I want to wait and find some new rims to put these on. :D

    I took them to my dad's as he has a much bigger garage than me!

    75s make a big difference...you should see the difference between 285/75/16s and 265/75/16s...Its awesome! I can't wait to get some 285s :)

    Oh and congrats :thumbsup:

    Here is what they will look like on the stock rims. I will more than likely have them mounted with the RWL inside....

    I wanted to go with 285's but really don't want to lift the truck. If I do decide to lift it I will go with the Bilstein 5100's up front set at 1.75 as I have the rear TSB done. My buddy had 285's and I just don't want to fool with rubbing or cutting! :p

    You'd hardly rub with 4.5 backspaced wheels and the cutting is minor...a monkey could do it ;)

    I know! :p

    I just really want to keep the suspension stock for right now. Maybe when these tires wear out and I need some new ones I may bite the bullet...

    By then the warranty will be out and I can do what I want! lol

    The stock ones are cool for stock stuff...its an unnecessary purchase IMO if your gonna run stock size tires.

    Discount tires also has a $60 rebate until June 12th. Only thing is discount will charge you the shipping onlinetires charges even though discount has free shipping. Ticked me off a bit but when tires plus here in town quoted me a little over 900 for these same exact tires I HAD to jump on it!

    The guy I spoke with at Discount was extremely helpful as well so I couldn't ask for anything better!

    So what you're saying is I should buy new rims?

    Since technically I am not running "stock" tires sizes. haha

    You're running stock size diameter (16"), so what he's saying is do not buy new wheels.

    lol...I mainly meant stock equipment. No, 265/75/16s are not "stock" but they work with stock equipment. Get new wheels if you lift it 3" and above ;)
