Howdy folks - I am looking to up size my tires from the 265/60/18 stock. I was thinking of going to a 265/70/18, but would go a little bigger pending on the feedback I get here. I am not planning on messing with my suspension until I need to (like its worn out), no lift in the immediate future, but at some point maybe a small one. For right now I just want to bump the amount of rubber between the rim and road... Suggestions, Experiences - any help would be appreciated.

Thanks......

I'm on 265/65/18 rims and had to trim back with my Rotiform rims. The Falken Wildpeaks were wider and taller than the OEM 16's I had on my 16 Pro-4X. All's good now though, love the Wildpeaks.

Outy front... Thanks for the links. Great info. Yea - I ran the search function but didn't come up with what you posted.... The rig looks sweet with those rims and thicker tires. I'd go that size, but don't want to modify the suspension yet and/or cut/melt any plastic at this point. Do you think your 275/65/18s would have fit with out any mods to the wells and lift? The 265/70/18 is narrower but taller wonder if it would top out with suspension travel. I drive in a lot of snow in VT and pretty sure the wider tire will be a little floaty for me. Thoughts...?

Prolly safest with the 265/65r18 but the 275/65 will most likely fit w/o issue. Any trimming would be minor in the mud flap area. My 275s are definitely looser feeling in the snow but its a fair trade to me.

Paulny61- those look great. I've got the same color truck with a capper on the back. The 265/65s look good in the wheel wells with out being stuffed. Did you do anything to lift the suspension or body or is that stock?

Thanks.

Ahh - that explains the copious amount of clearance I'm seeing under your rig. Yup - no lift for me, just want to put a little bigger sneaker in there with out mucking around with suspension just yet.

Looks sharp though... for sure!
