I have a tire question that you may be able to answer. I have a 2013 Crew Cab SV 2wd...when I do this I plan to do a spindle lift 6" in the front and 4 inches in the rear.

With the rim I am open to 16's through 18's. I prefer for them to stick out so from what I understand I would want a negative offset right.

16's I like to either go with 305 to 315's....the other two rims choices I'm not sure what my options are.

I heard after a certain size tire the truck has to be regeared. I plan to do that at a later for instance would 315/70/16's be heavier than 285/60/18's...Any light you can shed on this well help.

As for re-gearing. The 285/60/18 would be fine on the stock gears, it is a 31" tire so smaller then the Pro4X factory wheel size. The 315/70/16 is an odd size but a 315/75/16 is a 35" and would really benefit from re-gearing. If going with a 315 you will want to go with a negative offset rim so that they rub less on the frame when turning.[/QUOTE]

Yeah sorry I meant 315/75/16. I do plan on regearing eventually but for a while I might have to run the stock gears and I don't want to mess up anything. I think I would be happy with 305/75/16's as well. I am still doing research but within the last day I have narrowed my rim search down to 16's with the level 8 strike 6 or level 8 tracker pros because they are pretty light at 21 and 22lbs.

I am pretty sure I want to go with All Terrains but what are people getting mileage wise our of M/T's?
