    Planning on buying new BFG km2's for my truck which has an ome suspension kit on it. I was wondering what size tires you all recommend? I'm thinking something in the 33x10.5 range. I'd like bigger but I drive a lot and I don't want the vehicle to sufffer. Anything bigger than that you think would still work fine in terms of gas millage and stock gearing? I have stock rims and plan on just sticking to them unless I can get a great package deal.
    Thanks for the ideas.

    not sure how much lift you have, but I have 2.5 lift in the front and 2 in the back. I have 32x11.5x15 tires with no rubbing at all

    It's got 883 coils so I think it's got roughly 2 to 2.5 inches of lift. I actually had 32x11.5 originally on the truck and liked the width but just wanted something with a little taller stance. I would really like a 33x11.5 but I don't see that they make that size.

    Buy a daily driver set and an off-road set. :) That will help the fuel mileage...
