    I will be having and 80's era pick-up in my driveway hopefully this weekend. I am going to go with 31x10.5 for now. I am not sure what is on it.

    Opps! Actually I meant the MT's (typo). I had a 1982 Toyota pickup for a long time... I ran 33 12.50, but all of that rubber made it such a dog!:eek: I later got 31 10.50's and was much better. I stuck with those till I got rid of it(180k miles). Rotating your tires is the key to long tire life(and proper inflation). I rotated my tires every 2500 miles & got an easy 90k miles out of a 60k rated tire.:) The old standard "driver's direct" method works best: Take your driving tires(rear), move them directly to the front, and cross the fronts, then move them to the back. If you get them rotated by the dealership, or a shop they usually just move the fronts to the back & the backs to the front. I've seen this method not work as well as "Driver's Direct."
