I'd recomment 33x12.5" also. Either a 10 or 8 inch wide rim would do you just fine.

highly recommend a 33x12.5x15 on a 15x10 wheel with a PA body lift.

Summit has them and they do price matching. Tell them you saw it for $150.

2005 is the same as any other year i think the body lift might say 98-2001 but it will fit.

Tires you are better off getting a 15 inch wheel get a nice 15x8 or 15x10 wheel, tires for 16 inch wheels cost more.

I am running 35 inch tires with just a BL, T-bar crank, and AAL. My 35's are a tight fit and sometimes rub, as said above 33's are a very good size to go with.

looks like they dropped the price since I got mine. They price matched mine anyway so it doesn't really matter. I would tell them you saw it advertized for $150.
