    Just bought a used 2007 Radiant Red and was hoping to replace my tires with the ones in this pic. Does anyone have an idea of the tire size and whether this truck has been lifted? Tried contacting the owner of the truck with no response. Thanks!

    I am going to say 285/75 16 with 2.5" of lift and wheel spacers.

    My guess it's stock height with 265/70/17. Had that exact same set up but with the white letters inside

    Thanks for the responses!

    It's kind of a big difference between 265's and 285's isn't it?

    I'd love to not have to lift the truck given the costs involved. Could the reason the tires look larger be due to the more aggressive tread?

    Anyone with a more definitive guess? Is there a way to really tell just by photos?

    Difference is about an inch and 265/70/17's clear without any chopping or lifting. I'm currently running that same size but Nitto's run a little bit fatter and would rub without a lift (1.75" Billies)

    Htnswtches, so do you think he lifted his truck? I may be mistaken, but it looks a little more raised than your white one.

    Giving it a second look,it does look a little taller than mine but my front end has settled and maybe even starting to fade. It's hard to tell,I even zoomed in and can't see anything inside the front fender well. Going back to not try to break the bank on tires and lift,stick with the 265's, they fit. 285's thats a lot of tire to fit without a lift and more expensive
