I'm looking at buying some new tires right now i have 265/75's on my truck what is the biggest tire you can fit under these trucks with out lifting them? whats the biggest tire you can fit if i buy the leveling kit? I've heard you cant fit 35's but they rub a little. i was thinking abut getting 33x12.5's for mileage but i don't know yet. just wanted to what you could and couldn't fit. thanks for any imput

the 33's will clear but the 35's will not. leveling kit will clear the 35's with some light rub in tight turns. I am getting ready to add my leveling kit so I can put on my 35 mudders

i would go with the 33s my 35s rubb and it is annoying having to remeber not to turn to sharp bc they will do damage even with the leveling kit

315/70/16's won't rub on aftermarket wheels.

Also if your looking for mileage, go with a skinnier tire, it has less rolling resistance than a wide tire.

Sorry, my mistake :damnit i meant to type 305, i guess i was thinkin about 35's... Mine are 305/70/16 toyo open country A/T's are like 32.5" tall. They are the same height as my 285/75/16's.
