    This is the largest size tire you can run under a stock height truck with zero interference. It's a great size to add a bit of meat in the wheelwells and they look great under a mild lift as well. I ran them under my '07 when it was stock and still run them under my 3" lifted '10.

    Hope this helps.

    Same as others, stock height, 265/70/17, no issues. The speedo according to my GPS was a little off with the 265/65/17s. The new 265/70/17s fix it to be just about dead on.

    I have new stock springs but the mechanic took the old longest leaf, cut it to size, and added it. It rides great and is a little higher. It seems like it is 1-2 inches taller.

    Basically, I broke a spring, purchased an almost new set from this website, and when I had them installed, the mechanic took my old leafs, cut the longest one to fit, and added it to leafs he was installing.
