I'd just stick with the Nitto's. Are you going with a 285/75? Make sure you get load rating "D" tires.

If you want a cheap AT look at the General Grabber AT2. 99.9% identical to a BFG AT. I have them on my truck and have never had a problem with them.

Default Re: Tires - Cant decide need visual aid...

So I have been going crazy shopping for tires and maybe exploring another route just to see what my options are. Does anybody know what the backspacing is on my factory 16x7's?? May just go ahead and do a wheel tire combo rather than just tires. If I do I will get 15's. Thanks.

Your wheels have 4.5" backspacing.

I really suggest getting the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I have them on my truck and have got to say that they are just plain out awesome. I have been able to go anywhere I want to go.

The Hankook is a pretty respectable tire. Very good in a variety of elements, pretty quiet, and decent mileage. We run them on our trucks and have not had a problem in mud or snow. You might check with a Hankook dealer on price- I went through a local independent and had 31's mounted and balanced for $142 each.

Here's 265/75R16(I suggest this if you've got 3.73's) on stock 16x7 with a minimal torsion crank to level t hte truck out...


Here's 32x11.50R15 on 15x8 with the same minimal torsion crank to level the truck out...
do you have a body lift on that?
