    I am at 45,500 miles right now and I am going to be getting new tires at the 50,000 mark. I have the Off road truck so I have the bf goodrich rugged trail tires. I have also had the TSB to add the leaf in the rear of the truck so it gave me a small rise, but i also did the billsteins in the front to level the truck out. So it has raised my truck just a tad. With me having 265/70-16 tires...... could i get a larger tire? Would it mess with my speed settings? I am thinking about michellen tires or the same set I have or the BF goodrich allterrain...... any sugguestions?

    You can go with a 265-75-16 with only minimal affects on your speedometer readings. Check out the Yokohama Geolander ATS's. They're a great tire. A couple of us on here just put some on our trucks.

    You can do 265/75/16 and not really change anything. I have never heard of anyone likeing the rugged trails. I would suggest the michellin's or BFG's if you wanna do any offroading.

    did you have a lift on your truck? I had the TSB done to my rear and then I had the billsteins put on the front to raise it up some to level. I have the 265/70/16.

    It looks like on Tirerack.com that they are running 136.00 a tire.

    I have 265/75/16 BFG AT KO's they have the white letters but I had them installed facing in that's as big as you can without a 3" or more lift even with the raise you have they will fill up the wheel well nicely and according my GPS there really is not a noticeable difference with the speedometer.

    x2 on the Geolander's. Nice light tire with a good A/ T design. Had em on my last rig and really loved em. Slighty larger tire will bring your speedo more in line too.

    You shouldn't rup at all with the 265/75/16. I had mine with zero problems for about 3 weeks before the billys and AAL went on. I went with black letters out.

    I bought the Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 for my truck. I had researched it quite a bit before my purchase. 1st they came in p-metric so they would not be to heavy. 2nd they won all the tests that I could find online (beating the BFGoodrich and Toyo's). 3rd they get great reviews on sites like Discount Tire Direct. 4th and very important at the time I only paid $125 per tire for them.
    I have had them for 9 months and about 7.5K and I can say that I like them very much. Smooth Ride, great traction, quiet and aggressive looking.
    Good Luck with your decision.
