Default Re: 265s, Will I regret it??

I have 31x10.50's on my Ranger with stock wheels. It had 265/75's when I got it. I like both tire sizes. My 31's fill it out a bit better but there really isn't that much of a size difference in them. A cheap set of 15's can be 90 bucks in my experience, but that was a set of steelies and they were for an 82 Chevy 3/4 ton I used to own. But I like simple, clean wheels and they were tough as nails. You're going to pay for a name a lot of the time with wheels. I've had stock wheels I liked way better than aftermarket wheels on some rigs. Pick a wheel you like and save for it. I wouldn't make cost an issue there. Just my 2 cents.

The ones I posted above are like $99 apiece. That is not bad at all! U can get steel wheels like soft 8s, but I don't want a heavy ass steel wheel.

Hey Richard, 265/75s are bigger than 31s, how did they fill it up more? Its only $100 more for the 16s and 265 vs 15s and 32s, so Im not gonna let a couple bucks be the deciding factor. Decision coming soon!!!

just think about future purchases as well. 16's will always be a little bit more. If you are going to buy new wheels and tires then I would just go with 15's. Easier to sell as well.

The only reason I still have 16's is because I had new tires when I started looking for new wheels

16x8 rockcrawler streetlocks. There are a few companies that make them now though, I like mine because they have little drain holes so water does not sit there and rust them. The procomp ones don't have that

3 votes for the 32x11.5!
Um 285's are going to be closer to a 33" tire, and imo there really isn't going to be tooo much of a difference in the 265 vs 32's... besides 32's will look better....

and i have cragar soft 8's and i think their awesome for the price. 40 bucks a rim! Powdercoated black, 15x8's.

cragar soft 8s are the best bang for the buck if you ask me... there better than half the crap i see out there these days and a fraction of the cost

plus the 285 will make ur truck ride like a tank according to shane because of the load rating and how stiff the tires are..I know Goodyear duratrec makes a 265/75/16 which is 31.7" or 32" while the 285's are 32.8" basically a 33" tire and they look mean. go to http://www.4wheelparts.com/Tires/Goo...n=GDY312018027


Id get the wheels now then get tires once ur current once wear out cuz thats what i plan on doing
