I'm new on this site and have a 2007 2WD Titan. I have a PRG leveling kit w/ 1" rear lift en route. I really don't mind the stock rims, but have discovered it's a pisser trying to find many tire size options for 18" rims (like alot of guys here). I'm trying really hard not to give up the quiet/smooth ride I have with the stock GDYR SR-As, but also know it's virtually impossible when going to an A/T. Without entering the E-rated 285/65R18 10-ply heavy-duty tire, the biggest I can go is 275/65R18, which has a shorter aspect ratio and appear small on the rear. Cannot find 275/70R18 in any A/T tire. Yes, I want my cake and eat it, too. Wish Nissan had stayed with the 17" rims; more sizes to choose from. Any suggestions???

I personally think a truck should feel like a truck when i drive it- solid. The stock SR-A's are crap and squish all over the place without loading the bed up sure they are smooth but thats because they are a soft compound, they wear fast and don't do spit for anything rougher than pavement. On top of that I loaded up some laminate flooring the other day and thought for sure I was going to blow an SRA out. I know that stuff is pretty heavy so I calculated it out I had roughly 1400lbs in it, thats a significant weight addition so i noticed the squishy to the max. My next tires will be BFG's and definetely more plys.

Get a set of Revos! I have them on my stock 18" rims and really like them!

Toyo and Goodyear make AT tires in 275/70/18...they are E rated though, not sure if you want that. Check www.treadepot.com and search for that size.

Thanx guys, ya'll were a big help. I ended up staying stock size, 265/70R18 and going with the Revos. I am more than pleased with them. Very smooth/quiet ride with a sharp/aggressive appearance. These ride better than my BFG K/O's. When my 2" leveling kit is installed, I'll post pics. Thanx again!
