    I want to change my stock tire from 265X65X17 to something larger. I was looking at 275X70X17. What is the easiest way to modify the truck so the tires will fit? I dont want to lift the truck much but are there some sort of spacers available that will allow me to run the larger tires? I dont want to loose much suspension or traction so if I need to spend a few extra dollars so be it but I would like to keep everything (tires and mods) under $1500.

    Any thoughts????

    The largest you can go without lifting is 265/70/17.

    I am running that tire size now. I installed the Bilstein 5100's all around. The front set a 1.75" of lift. I had to do a moderate amount of trimming in the front to eliminate tire rub. All together, new tires, new wheels and the lift, I spent roughly $1700.

    I know there is a guy on TN who was running the 275-70/17's on his stock wheels at stock height.

    I talked to a guy at Les Scwab abd he said they could put a 2" spacer on the front and it should not rub but I just want to know if this is a good way to go. Will it effect the suspension??? The rear tires should be fine without and mods...I think
