32's???

ok.. a lot of you know that ive installed a small lift all week and it rounds out to about 2" all around. i NEED to get some tires soon... and i need opinions. i dont want to sell myself short on this and i wanna get 32's cuz im not planning on lifting anymore. but the deal is.. i dont feel real comfortable about mounting an 11.5" tire on a 7" wide rim (and im not gonna spend money getting wider rims)... has anybody had any experience doing this? i mean.. i will be using these tires on and off road and i want NOTHING that i can help to go wrong. if not then ill just go with 31's cuz there arent many choices in 265/75/15. im looking for an all terrain tire... but right now i cant afford bfg's, so if anybody has had any experience with a cheaper all terrain (good or bad) please let me know. im pretty much postive that 32's will fit, but here is a pic as kind of a reference for everybody... thx for any help.Name:  88fcd27c.jpg

Go with some 31x1050-15 BFG KOs

That's what I got on my Edge and your truck should sit about as high as an edge, now.

here is Dereks truck on stock 15x7 edge wheels with 32x11.5x15 looks bad *** to me


btw why in hell you looking in metric sizes for 15" rims on 31's look for 31x10.5x15 if you want 31's...not metric P sizes....

Yeah 32's on a 7" wide rim is perfectly fine, I think that when you get up to 12.50 you should have some worries, but you will be fine with 11.50.

cool... thx bro... and btw everybody, i think im just gonna fork over the money and get the bfg's.. probably the smartest thing i do involving my truck. but i found a deal through a woman who is friends with my parents... her dad owns a ma and pa tire shop and she can get me about $150 off a regular person's price! which is $675 total, so ill pay about $525
