    It's tire time, and based on everyone's feedback on the type of driving I'll be doing (mostly on-road, light off-road, snow, snow, snow) and my budget, I've keyed in on the General Grabber AT 2s and the Cooper Discoverer STs.

    It's a 2005 SR5 DC short-bed istting at stock height, and I'm also curious about tire sizes. I THINK I can do the following sizes with no rubbing and without having to remove mud flaps. I'm not interested in removing flaps, so if I'll need to in order to get the bigguns on, I'll go to the next size down.

    I haven't seen a direct matchup thread between these two models, so have at it!

    Thanks in advance for advice and guidance.

    Coopers in a 265/75 no rubbing probs and are highly recommended by many

    I'll be replacing the spare as well - it's a full-size OEM Dunlop (245/75 R16).

    I went with the Generals today (got all busy having a kid in the meantime), and it cost me just under $1,000 for five mounted, balanced, new high-pressure stems, and whatever other stuff they do.

    Went with the 265/75 r16. They fill out the wheel wells nicely :)
