    I plan to get new tires soon. My stock 15" wheels are in pretty bad shape. I found a nice set of stock 16" (01 to 04) wheels for sale by me. I may buy them. If I was going to match 16" tires to be the same as 32x11.50x15, what would the size be for the 16" wheels?

    I know I should have asked this on the Wheels and Tires section, but this is a 2 part question. Here's the second part. I have a 2000 Xtra Cab Auto Trans 2.7 4Cyl. How will this size tire be on my truck? Will it dog down the power much?

    Thanks....:D

    My first thought was 265/75/16, except that its about a 10.5 inch wide tire. It shouldn't mess with the power to much.

    Well, screw the 16" wheel option....LOL

    I started pricing tires. BF Goodrich AT (Only Tire I'll Buy) size 32x11.50x15 are about $155.00 each. Same size (275/75/16) on a 16" wheel are about $195.00 each. PLUS, the wheels I found are $150 for 4. They are the stock alloy wheels from 01 - 04 truck. They are much nicer, but I can't spend the extra money.

    So, here's my delema. I have to clean my stock alloy wheels. What works good? I've tried a few wheel cleaners, but they didn't do the job. I'll start a thread along with pictures of my wheels. Oxidation, some pitting, and black brake dust.

    eagle one has some really good wheel cleaners.....get the one for the type of wheels you have. probably the alum wheel cleaner..try it first, cause it cleans the brake dust out of thwe pitting pretty good. also, try greased lightning.....i use it all the time.......did really well before i painted my wheels black.

    another way to clean the rims is with some Comit if you have any laying around your house. you really have to scrub though
