    08 double
    I'm a newb to the forum and have been doing much looking. I just picked up a new to me 08 double cab longbed SR5 with stock styled steel 16's stock dunlop 245/75/16's on it. I'm not sure if I want to go bigger but i despretly need new tires before the snow falls and hunting season brings me into some real interesting terrain. What are some good options for me in a stock size? Also what advantages would I gain from getting another size tire and what size would work on my truck without making too much of a difference? Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    265/75/16 can fit

    Getting another size just fills the wheel well better and gives 1/2" the diameter increase more ground clearance for the differential.

    I think the semi-gloss black worked out perfectly!
