    Same size as what you have. You can go a little taller if you want 265/70/17 or 255/75/17.

    Do some research first. There are several tires that perform much better than the BFG's.
    And don't go wider than 265. You WILL have fitment issues and rubbing.

    bfg at ko2, method double standard
    if you drop to a 16x8 4.5 backspacing you will have a lot of options for tires. I was looking at the bfg at ko2, toyo at2, and gy wrangler duratrac. ended up going with the ko2s because they were the cheapest. 265/75/16 is an easy to find tire size and that is about as big as you can go stock. I have some slight rubbing in front when loaded down with passengers but my suspension is stock and has 160k miles. I got method wheels but there really isn't a best wheel or tire imo. just depends on what you're looking for. there's steel wheels (heavy/strong) alloys (lighter but not as strong) ... all terrain, mud terrain, tires designed for the highway. you just have to decide how much you want to spend and what looks good to you[​IMG]

    Thanks guys. I'm using thr truck mostly on streets and the highway. Being in ny we get alot of snow and I do go upstate and on the beach alot. Mostly the tires will be for looks but with heavy snow and ice, performance will matter. I'll do a bit more research thanks guys

    Yes sir
    I love my BFG KO's, perform great in snow and ice. Look at goodyear wrangler duratracs as well, they're another very popular tire.

    Very Nice!!! Did you get the 20mm offset? I've been looking at these wheel but didn't know which one to take as 01mm might stick out too much.

    Thx in advance!

    Thanks, I really like them. I know it's a "medium" offset from what they told me. I didn’t see the back of the wheel before they installed them. I'll see if I can look for you after work.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    If you have the non-sport model, I like 265/75/16. A bit more tire, than rim. Works on a non-lifted truck too.

    265/75 without lift or armor (or my fat ass :anonymous:)
