That's true. 31s would be considered big if your running stock suspension. I can't wait to get my 33s.

Default Re: BIG TIRES... small engines!!!

I have bone stock 2WD 2011 XL automatic regular cab with a 2.3l 4 cylinder. The truck has stock 4.10 gears. No lift at all.

I'm currently running the stock 225/70r15 Continental tires. Do you think I could comfortably upgrade to 235/75r15 all-terrain tires without screwing up my fuel economy, gears, engine, etc.?
