    Stock tire was 245's.
    The comparison tire is 35x12.5x15" (for sale). their 6 lug, the truck is 8 lug.

    I knew I wanted bigger tires (even though its gonna be my tow rig, I needed to lower the RPM's down cause of the 4.10 gears+diesel). So when I bought the fenders (haemann) fiberglass fenders, I had always wanted the pre-runner look- so I got the 5" buldge in the rear and the 3" buldge for the front. The only problem Im having now is finding cheap and large 16" tires that are at least D rated.

    I can't think of anything worse that could be written on the side of a truck. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Good thing you saved it!
