    So I've been looking online last night and this morning, and I cannot for the life of me find the tire size I want.

    I'm looking for either 255/80R17 or 265/75R17 but have had no luck on any site finding any tire I want (Duratracs, Grabber AT 2's, Dynapro's) in that size.

    Where do you guys go, who do you call, what do I need to do to find the tire size I want? I don't want 285's that's forsure.

    Help me out here!

    Me thinks the pic was to attract people to this thread, which i was a victim of.

    Yep. That's why bait pics get removed.

    yeah I'm just trying to get about a 32" tire though. And KM2's are a jump for me as I don't offroad enough to justify them. I just really want something to fill in this 3" lift I've had on for months
