    Hey everyone,
    I just put some Dayton Timberline AT 2 on my truck today. They are 265/70-17 compared to the stock which are 265/65-17. I was wondering if anyone else had done this and if their was any negative effects? Thanks

    What tires did you go with?

    Did your acceleration or gas milage drop?

    I haven't noticed a gas mileage difference since I haven't driven too much since I got them and i was offroading alot trying to test them. I think they might be rubbing though somewhere in the wheel wells. Especially if i go over a bump in a sharp turn. Other than that no big deal. Sits up higher than before. Cost about 680 for the tires, for the stock tires that came with it was about 780, so of course i went with the bigger and more aggressive looking since it was also cheaper.
