Buying some new shoes for the truck...
Hey guys, I'm going to be buying some new tires for my truck and am wondering about size...
I don't offroad, but do some mountain snow driving on roads, other than that, just city/highway driving...this truck's my daily driver.
I found a good deal on some used 235/75r15 BFG AT KOs, but I could probably spring a bit more cash and buy some new General Grabber AT2s in either 30x9.50 or 235/75r15.
My questions are:
1. With a 2wd 4cyl 2.5L manual with 3.73 gears, is running a 30x9.50 going to put too much load on the engine and axle?
2. Will a 30x9.50 fit under the truck in the spare tire well?
3. Which tires are better in the snow?
1999 2wd Mazda B2500 SE ext cab 5spd (only 46,000 miles)
Carbon Fiber dash
Leer Shell Cap with Yakima Racks
30x9.50 BF Goodrich AT KO on 15x7 ProComp Series 52 Gloss Black wheels
