hey man can you help me figure something out, I am exhausted from school and work the last 2 days and im so tired right now but im trying to figure this out lol. my current tire is 235x75x15 which is 9.25 wide and 28.8 tall. Im going to 33x12.5's which means my new tire will be aorund 4 inches taller, and 3 inches wider. Does that mean it will make my truck 4 inches taller than it is now or 2 lol, god I feel retarded but I really can't think right now lol.

actually just did some research and configurations, and the height of my stock 235x75x15 tires is 29.1 k. the closest metric equal to 33x12.5 is 315x70x15 which is technically 33.2 circum and 12.4 wide but its height is 32.64 k. So that leaves my truck sitting around 3.5 inches taller than it is right now. so in theory after the 3 inch bl, it should be around 6 to 6.5 inches taller than its sitting right now. Yeah I dont need an MT but why not you know lol. actually I really just need a good tire thats comfortable and has good ice and snow grip. BFG AT has good grip on ice but because its so hard it can ride rough. BFG MT does better in the snow but not so good on ice but is more comfortable then the BFG AT. and according to ratings, the Duratrac does better in the snow and ice then either one and is more comfortable then either one lol. SO why shouldnt I get the duratrac you know

He isn't seeing that 1/2 of the tires heighth is at the top & 1/2 on the bottom. A 3in taller tire will only raise the truck 1 1/2 inch
