Just make sure there's no weather cracks in the treads. They look okay from the photos though.

Ty those are 235/75/15's not 16's... they are going to look retarded on your truck... especially those old school wheels on such a new vehicle.... take em and sell em, or hold out on some 265/75/16's

Peace

the 315's would only fit with a lift. those are like a 12.5" wide tire, if not more. bigger than 33's.

yeah a 315 is 12.5" wide, which means you should run an 8-10" wide rim. Overall diameter is 34.6". So that's a pretty freakin big tire.
