    Looking for suggestions on what size tire to use with 17" rims and a 3" lift. It would be nice to stick with a size that doesn't throw off the speed and miles. And for those who have a pic please post it. Thanks.

    I've been working on this one here on TW for a month....just bought 16" X 8" Ultra Drifters and going 285/75/16...I wanted to keep my stock Sport Wheels...would have needed spacers and they're illegal in PA... The taller tire and 16" wheel looks better on lifted truck...and more practical if you take it off road to protect the wheels...

    I'm running 255/75/17 on my OME lift and my speedo is only off 2 mph at 70mph. No rubbing, no trimming and it doesn't look bad. I am going to go a little bigger though when I get new tires. Probably 33's.
