    Hey guys,

    I'm about to order new tires. Going to go with the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tire and will have 5100s all round (leveled out in front) but I am not sure what size to go with. I want to go with stock size (265/70/16) but they are more expensive as they only come in a D rated tire, and I dont know if I want to get the next size up (265/75/16) as I dont want the tires to look "stuffed". Any suggestions as to which tire to go with?? Thanks!

    I'd say go with the 265/75's, they look great on 1st gens, and theyre not too much of a difference from your 265/70's.
    I have 265/75's on mine, take a look at my build thread if you want to see how it looks and theres TONS of pics up around the forum, just take use the Search function to find them

    They won't look "stuffed". Reasoning behind you siding for the 75s?
