    Well i'm having trouble on deciding what tires to get. two in mind right now are km2 or wrangler duratracs :confused:. i like how the km2 is really beefy but yet the wranglers are all terrain which (im not a professional) probably last a lot longer than the km2. any ideas of other tires? looking for 33" i really want something looking really beefy but not something that i will have to replace so soon. Any tips would be really nice :)

    255-85/R16. No rubbing, but choices are limited, very limited.

    Tires are tough on a site like this, everyone thinks the tire they have on their truck is the best... The best place to get reviews are Tirerack, or Discount tire. You have a Sport, are you considering 17's or 16's?

    I have a sport w/ 3" lift and already have procomp 16" rims on the way. Not soo good with tire sizing and numbe on them so I just kinda been experimenting with a tire size calculator. But if I can get 33" w/o any rub and trim that would be nice but I still want a bit wide and really beefy, ye long lasting tires. I just thought anyone could give me inputs base on experience that would help. Thanks!

    285 will rub, I have 265/75/16 and mine would rub a little. Put some 5100's set at 1.75 solved the rubbing issue.

    Most likely just the front inner plastic and "possibly" the cab mount chop.
