    I recently got a 2003 S-10 for a smoking deal with all the discounts and employee price, etc. Its only a 2wd, but I want to put a set of mud terrians on it for the hell of it. I am trying to stay with the same size tire. Its already a dog as it is. So, I dont want to go any taller. Stock it has 205/75R15s. I think I can get a set of 215/75R15. These are only 1/2 inch taller and just as wide. So, that would work.

    Anyone else know of any brands with baby mud terriains?

    Thanks
    Ken H.

    I thought about those. Just that I really dont want to go any larger in size. Its such a dog already that I dont want to do anything to hurt its performance at all.
    But, I just might go for it anyways.

    They don't make them smaller?

    What gears does it have? I've got the reatreads on my DD, 31x10.50R15 on 15x8s with 3.73 gears, but its a V6/4x4 truck.

    In that size, I don't think your gonna find a real "mud terrain" tire. You might have to look at some kind of snow tire. They usually come in smaller sizes.
