    I have a new Black 2010 DC 4X4, everything is stock, I want to put some black rims on and probably some BFG AT's, is the stock lift enough to put on some rims and better off road tires, I dont go off road that often but I want my truck to look more like a TRUCK and not have to worry about getting stuck when I do go hit the trails in Uhwarrie, NC

    Stock height is fine for 265/70 16 tires. Just make sure your rims have 4.5" of backspacing and you should be fine.

    With no suspension mods, the following sizes will fit:

    stock:
    245/75/R16
    265/70/R16
    265/65/R17

    plus sizes:
    265/75/R16
    265/70/R17

    Basically anywhere within 3% or so of the stock diameter.

    Also, the backspacing does not HAVE to be 4.5" backspacing for tires only 265mm or less in width. I believe stock backspacing is 5+ inches and all of the above sizes will fit. If you want to fit 285mm width tires, then yes, 4.5" of backspacing is the number to aim for.

    Very true. This size also has the benefit of being lighter than a 265/75/r16.

    A narrow fitment like that would be ideal for snow tires.
