Hey Matt

I need some help determining what size tire would be perfect for my truck.

i am looking to do a 2.5 inch lift in the front at the most. i need a tire that wont look too goofy like small wise, i dont want it to affect the gas millage much if that's possible and have perfect bite for when i go offroading since i'm 2wd :)

thanks

Not sure exactly what size you need but i can write one off you don't. 275 / 70/ 18. It's what i have on mine and given a second choice, i'd have went with a 295.

I researched alot on 1010tires.com to see what tires went with what rims and how big they were etc. The 295's would work on mine, but it's up to you and your needs

Thank you for the post Dave. We would be happy to help you with your tire needs.

If you are looking to conserve as much fuel economy as possible, a narrower tire like the 275/70-18, might be the best option for you. Larger and wider tires are typically heavier (unsprung weight) and have more rolling resistance do to the contact patch on the road.

Are you running stock or after market wheels? If aftermarket, what are the wheel dimensions (width/offset)?

We look forward to your response and thank you for the opportunity at your business.

Hey it also depends on what brand as some makers don't make certain sizes. Shopping for tires / rims $ucks [email protected] Mine are Terra Grapplers and i love them, just wish they were bigger.

The 275/70R18 size is really the tallest size I would recommend for your truck based on what you are looking for. They are a little taller and wider than your stock tire.

If you want to go bigger than that you can look at the 295/70R18 size but to fit this size you will need to make some fender liner modifications to keep them from rubbing. This size will be a bit heavier than the 275/70R18 and it will push a bit more air down the road as well.

In the 275/70R18 size the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Pro Grade would be my #1 recommendation for what you are looking for. These have a 50,000 mile warranty, they can take a beating and they won't wake the neighbors going down the road. If these are a bit costly for you my 2nd recommendation would be either the Hankook RF10 ATM or the Nitto Terra Grappler. Both of these tires go great on and off-road without breaking the bank.
