    I found a nice deal on mounted BF Goodrich AT 285/75-16. How are these
    compared to 32x11.50x15...? Would they be bigger, smaller, or same size?

    Thanks...:D

    OK, Thanks. Yeah, I'm not going to get them then. I want 32" max. Don't want to lift the truck. I'm going to buy a set of stock 15's from someone as planned....;)

    BTW, I've tried that Tire Calculator, and can't figure it out....:notsure:

    Yes, I am an idiot. Yes.................Yes I am.

    no you are not...

    its more of a tire size comparison formula...

    you have to enter the two different tire sizes you are considering and it gives you a side by side comparison...

    you need to enter your current size tire and the tire size you are considering...

    per that formula, the 285-75-16 is comparable to 32.8-11.2-16

    of course, depending on sidewall and tread aggressiveness, that pretty much can get rounded up to about 33x11.5

    Yeah it's a job doing those bumper ends. Believe me. Patience and take your time.

    Not gonna lift it? I did a modest 2" lift, I am going 31/10.5/15. That will give me 4" total lift in all. I don't want to go crazy high, but i will ba happy the way it is.
