    Alright, noob question regarding tire size. 07 DC LB taco, 3" revtek. Tires are currirently 285, 60 R18. I just bought the truck, and will need new tires soon. Should I try to get same tire size, or should I go to a 32 or 33 " tire? I am a computer geek, not a mechanic.

    Help apprecitated.

    GO BIGGER!

    I think 32" would be all it could take with the 18" wheel if you want to keep them at 285 width.

    So as a guy who 80% of driving is concrete, not dirt/mud, di I need to pay attention to the offset of the rims? They seen failry deep now. How do I know if spacers are there already or not?

    wat?

    no...check out the calculator everyone is linking to. the 285/75/17 is closer to a 33" than being under a 32"
