Default What tires will fit?

Evenin'-

We're getting pelted with snow here in MA and to combat mother nature I'm looking to put some new tires on my truck. Currently I've got 215/75R15's on it but am wondering what I can get away with putting on my existing rims. I'm not looking to lift the truck really, just looking to maximize the availability of deals I might find on Craigslist without limiting my search for the same sized tires.

If I understand the sizing correctly, I should be mainly concerned with the "15" as it's the size of my existing rims.. but I don't want to take any chances so here I am seeking wisdom from the forum.

No doubt this question has been answered many times here, and I apologize, I was unable to find the answer I needed when I looked around.

Thank you for your help

Rob

Bigger tires dont necessarily mean more traction...

truck info would help but in most cases 235/75/15's will fit fine.

a 225/70/15 would be the same height just wider

----------

just saw 98 4x4....you sir are runnin some tiny tires lol! go with some 235's which would(well should) be the stock size
