    So soon i will be having to get some new tires. i am pretty set on bfg a/t on a 15" rim because i got the rims for $30 bucks. I use my truck as my dd and as my toy. i do as much offroad as 2wd will do and i do tow my boat and or jet ski to my lake house every now and then. about a 2hr haul. i really want 33s but i cant decide on the width. should i go with 9.5" or 10.5". Pros/ cons of 33s on a dd. what kind of mpg will i be looking at lets say i get 17mpg city right now. thanks.

    the wider the tire the more resistance you'll have on the road, the taller the tire means more rotation mass...all equaling less mpg. I'd run the 33x 10.5's if it were me :)

    I'd stick with the 31's if it was me. Look for a more agressive tread that makes the tire look bigger. Of course this is coming from a guy that puts 2500 miles a month on a truck too. :)

    ya well i am sick of my mud terrians as they are not needed. i want an a/t and 31 a/t are very small looking. o would consider 32x11.5 but i figure 33x10.5 will have the same mpg and power drop.
