    I've been looking around on the web today trying to figure out what kind of rims and tires I want. But I'm a little lost on figuring out what sizes to get. I know what what height tires I want, but thats about it. Different sites/brands/models seem to have different amount of measurments to describe the rim/tire. Some use 2 mesurements, some use 3 measurments, etc.

    Any help would be apperciated! This forum is great!

    You need to decide what youre wanting to do, mud rocks, trails, and then decide what kind of tire you want. Tire size depends alot on what you wheel and your trucks capabilities. I find its easier to decide what tire you want, then just build the truck around them.

    The #'s in the tire size should be the Hieght, width, and rim size.(IE 33x12.50x15 would be 33" tall and 12.5 inches wide and would fit a 15" rim)
