    So I decided to deplay the x-mas/birthday present for my dad since he already had studded snow tires on for the winter.

    Will now that it is getting warmer I am going to purchase the Goodyear DuraTracs for his truck in the next week or so.

    So my question is what tire sizes will fit or recommend for his wheels.
    He has 3 sets of wheels.
    1st set of wheels he has are these:
    [​IMG]

    and the other 2 set of wheels are these:
    [​IMG]

    I notice there are 2 of these wheels. I dont know if he has 15x7 or 15x6 but he has 2 sets of these wheels.



    So would the 235/75/15 or 31/10.5.15 DuraTracs fit which wheel or is best recommend?

    hmm the first ones are 15x7. the stock size is 31's. you MIGHT be able to fit 32's

    The reason why I am considering or hoping 235s will fitt the first wheels is because they are cheaper then 31s. However what do you guys suggest or recommend??

    The 235's are smaller, and less wide than the aforementioned 31x10.5's. They will fit fine, but they will look pretty tiny.

    oh okay. Yeah I am not sure. all of my dad's tires are 225s so i figured 235s would look better on his truck.

    les schwab really supports that. ive done their little test and it works but it makes tires chunk easier. if your dad does a lot of off roading i would not sip them

    he hardly goes off roading. Less then 6-8 times a yr. Did sipping them help more on longevity?

    So to recap: 235/75/15s and 31/10.5/15s both will fit BOTH wheels or just the first wheel I posted up???
