Truck looks good. Those tires look massive on the standard cab.

Do you know how to change ball joints?

This seems to always be the first thing someone says to large tires. If you are happy with it drive sensible and don't worry about it. I have over 70k on my lift, last 40k on 37s and 38s and am still on the stock wheel bearings.

Largest tires to run with 4.56s is 35s, after that you start losing performance and believe i or not mpg; 4.88s min on 36s.

If you buy the 4.56 just because of money, I do understand wanting the best bang for the buck BUT, you may end up not satisfied with the end results.

ltr/luck...

IF you can keep your foot out of it.

Remember the weight of the new tire vs old and the fact it is jacked up adds wind resistance, so you will pay for those in mpg loss.

luck with it.

Looks good but does the truck have enough power to turn 36s? Im also worried about breaking CV shafts and blowing a trans. I know 33s put a drag on my truck even with 4.10s, I would not want to go any bigger without beefing up my drivetrain.

Thanks man. The loss of power isnt as dramatic as I thought it would be. My acceleration is what I have noticed the biggest change in...but thats cause when I had 33s I would gas it everywhere cause it was so quick. Now with the 36s its alot slower but I have no problem merging onto the highway or passing people and Im alot nice to the skinny pedal haha. As for the trans and CV shafts im sure they will wear quicker...

Bad News - Mickey Thompson discontinued the 36x15.5 for 15 in rims...they only make em for 18s and 20s I believe now. Basically im gonna have to downsize when I have to replace these bad boys. The good news is they still got TONS of life left...so I dont have to worry about it for awhile

IMO, these would look sweet on 18's. It's a tall enough tire it would still be very proportional.

What about these...They say the radial version is a still good for street driving even though they still look really aggressive. (Which is awesome in my opinion. lol) But if you read the description at the top, then go to the first tire style (on road radials) You should see your 36x13.5x15. It is the 3rd column and 1st one on the third column. Hope this helps. Not sure if these will work or be the style you might want?

Better pic of the on road ones.
