    I've gotten 40K good miles out of the OE tires and I'm noticing the wet road traction is not as good as it used to be so I'm going to replace them. I think I'm going with the Michelin LTX M/S2 in a 265/70R-17. These Michelin's are going to be an inch taller than the OE 265/65-17s. The tire I'd really like to have is the LTX M/S2 285/70R-17. The 285s would be 2 inches taller and an inch wider.

    I've read on this forum often that the 265/70-17 will fit without any problems but the 285/70-17's without a level of modification I'm not interested in. My truck is raised an inch with the rear leaf TSB and 5100 Bilsteins on all four corners.

    If people who know could verify I've got my facts straight I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    Katskin leather interior, Satoshi grille, Bilstein 5100's @ 1.75, rear leaf TSB, magnaflow exhaust, 18x9 BBS RW's, 275/65/18 Nitto TG's, black headlights, black taillights, Hella Supertones, weathertechs, EFX tri-fold tonneau, n-Fab steps
    That's correct. The 265/70's will fit no problem. The 285/70's will require a lift and wheel spacers.
