Derwud: thanks for the info... 33s...

285mm/25.4 = 11.22" wide, but how tall is /70mm/17?


note:
i saw 17x8.5" rims being sold at $411 each
i didn't any thing larger than 285/70/17s - these are around $180 each.

After reading your VERY low gas mileage figures you might want to think about cutting out the fender wells and installing tires from a tractor trailor. This would effectively slow your engine down at cruise and may prevent you from leaving 50 feet of rubber at every stop light. :D

I have the 18" inch wheels on mine. I think that I will be replacing these tires sooner than I normally do. I do like leaving rubber at the intersections after a light change. I haven't had this much fun since the early 70's when I had a 1969 mustang fastback.:lol: :lol:

The SE and LE come with 33' tires with both the 17 and 18 inch wheels. Now as far as what is the largest size tire you can run. I have heard due to the wheel arch, (they are designed to house a 33" tire after all) that you need to lift the front of the truck at least 7-8 inches to mount 35's on it and not get rubbing. Now please don't flame me, I'm only passing on what I know and heard. My Avatar is the CST 8 inch Prototype on 35's.
