    Glad you were able to come to a decision bill-e-boy, I figured since it helped you out, I should share with the rest of the class...

    For anyone who finds this thread, facing the same dilemma....

    BEFORE: worn 265/70 R16 General Grabber AT2's on stock 16x7 wheels
    AFTER: fresh 265/75 R16 Goodyear Duratracs on 16x8 EagleAlloy100's 3.625 BS

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    oh, and the test fit before mounting the tires...

    [​IMG]

    ^ here you can see I'm measuring where the back of the wheel is positioned - I have already done the same measurement with the stock wheels in this photo (see the gap at the top)...

    [​IMG]

    ^ a closer look at the gap - 1" further out with the AE100's
    I would have put a measuring device in the photo, but I needed a third hand :D

    I figure I'd toss up a few more, since I'm in a pic-happy mood :cookiemonster:

    The test fit:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh, and the clearance between stock wheel / tire size and UCA

    [​IMG]


    That's all you get!! NOT ONE MO..

    [​IMG]


    ... ok, NOW I'm done.

    NO, factory lug nuts will not work, unfortunately.

    I picked up a set on eBay like these only chrome -

    You're gonna want a 12x1.5 with a 60° conical seat.

    The stock lug nuts look like this:

    Lookin' good! :bananadance:

    I like your roof rack - you ever use it?

    Today I was reminded that I need to invest in some of those side window visors - turning a corner in the rain with a fresh wax job got me and my door controls all wet :(

    naaah...i never use it....i installed the rack after i bought the truck, they didn't have one on the lot with a rack when i bought my truck...so i ordered it later.,It's only attached with 8 screws.....so there is no reinforcement in the roof like i would think it would have had it come from the factory with the rack.

    i just like the look of the racks on our trucks. :D
