Curious about tire salesman
I have a 99 reg cab sidestep,stock ride height, 2wd, the tires that were on the truck when i bought it were bf goodrich radials, and small as hell. I don't know if the kid i bought it from thought they gave a lower profile, but on stock 15's? Ugh. Anyways, my occupation requires the use of my truck on the jobsite, day to day, and said jobsites are mudpits. I recently bought bf goodrich all terrain ko's, tire size 215 75r15. I wanted a 235 size tire, or at the least 225, but was told even 225's rub. I have looked on multiple ranger forums regarding tire clearance issues, and from what I got out of all of them is 235's shouldn't rub, I could even have gone to 245. So my question is basically was the salesman blowing smoke up my *** by selling me the 215's? I wanted something that looks a little beefier, and would fill the wells a little more, and I'm sort of pissed because I'm related to the salesman, and I don't wanna beef if he was right. Help!!!!
