Default What tires will fit?


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

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
