    Hello TW,

    Names Joey, new to the sign in part of the forum. Although I've been buzzing around.

    My question is, I going with the Billy 5100s front and the toytec 1.5 leaf spring. For right now, I'm keeping my stock 16in wheels.

    I'm actually needing new tires now since my factories ate now fairly bald. So that brings me to this. I drive mainly paved roads. 5 times a year I will go down a dirt/muddy trail with the guys.

    So I'm looking for the perfect A/T for this setup.
    Either a 265/75/16, or could I go with a 285/75/16? Take in consideration I don't want the truck to loom unporpotioned. Aldo don't want to ruff of a ride. So is there anyone that could put me on the right track?

    Thanks everyone.

    Welcome!

    with 285's your going to have to get wheel spacers or new wheels.

    So the tires wouldn't rub to bad if I were to get spacers? What size spacers would I need?

    It will depend on what setting you put the 5100's at, plus with stock wheels you will for sure get rubbing. Adding wheel spacers will help but im not sure the size you will need. There are a ton of people running 285's on stock wheels on here and im sure you will have someone chime in. As far as ride goes if your not off-roading to often you will probably have a better ride with 265's. But as i said depends on what setting your going to put the 5100's at.

    One of my buddies has 285/75/16s on his truck. But he has a 3' lift and has the spacers and he still had to do some trimming.

    I have 5100s set at 1.75 and got 265/75/16 and it runs smooth.

    did you have to use any type of spacer with the 265/75/16?
    do you happen to have a picture of your truck how it sits?

    ^^^^^ you do not need wheel spacers with 265's, they will fit just fine but possibly rub your mud flaps. the stance of your truck will look the same just sightly taller. the tire is the same width as stock just taller, it depends on how you want your truck to look if you want the wheels to stick out further or want a wider stance then use wheel spacers. if not then you dont need them.

    Thanks for all the advice. My truck is just a pre-runner, so I'm not really going to off road look with it. Just want that more aggressive look.
