New tire option for stock 18" rims

I need new tires(thanks to my extreme tune :roflmao: ) stock tire is the POS continental 275/70/R18 anybody know of other option? maybe a 285 or ????? just so the tire is not smaller and I dont have to buy new rims just now.

Or how big can I go on rim with out having to lift the truck?

i got Toyo Open Country A/T's for like 150$ a piece in 275/60-20's on my yukon. so i imagine the 18's would be cheaper ??

trucks with factory 20s (KR & harleys also) come with 275/65/20, which is a hair narrow of a 34x11x20. your 275/70/18s come in at a hair narrow of a 33x11x18. you can go to a 35x12.50x18 with no problems at all, or a 325/65/18 (35x13) as well. this is on stock rims, on a stock truck with no lift...

BUT if you put on non stock wheels you wont be able to fit 35s on a stock truck without rubbing
