    has anyone had a problem putting 235/75/15 tires on a standard truck without lifting it?

    My tire dealers here think it would work just fine.

    I would use the original 15" rims

    Those are awful skinny tires. What are they and what purpose are you going for?

    I am replacing the OEM tires that are 215/70/15

    talk about skinny!! These tires have a 1000 miles on them! they look like bicycle tires!

    I want to put them on a standard 2wd access cab

    Just want to know if they will fit without rubbing.

    Can I go larger?

    I think he might have the base model work truck. The one that sits like 6" off the ground lol.

    it is a base truck, however has the SR5 package on it, Bushwacker Fender Flares, and skinny tires! Not so funny :)

    Just want to know if I will have clearance problems moving up to the 235/75/15?
