Thinking of 225/60/16's GY Eagle GTs ... snatch up a bit of power?

    I'm the typa guy that'll never put my truck off-road. just ain't my thing. Looking at new tire sizes ... my local dealer can order a set of 225/60/16's in a Goodyear Eagle GT (nice tread pattern / obviously smaller tire). I've checked out the tire size chart but am interested in actual experience from board members.. whats a good tire size for someone more aimed at on road performance?

    Thanks in advance

    i had 255 and 245 on my last two trucks one, had khumos, goodyear eagles, and falkens, i liked the khumos the best, they looked the best for a street tire, and were pretty cheap, the goodyears were up there in price and i hated them, no traction in rain at all it would get annoying everytime u pull up to a stop sign and just spin the tires taking off
