another noob tire question

ok guys. i have a 94 4wd 4.0 with a 2 1/2 inch lift just in the front. it is just a tad bit higher than the back but i plan on leveling that out soon with some blocks. i am going for estetics solely for this truck. i want some nice big meaty looking tires, but not something that will kill my gas mileage. i was looking at bfgoodrich, goodyear, mastercraft, general, and possibly super swamper thornbirds. i think i can fit 32s under it. also, i have the stock 15 inch wheels. does anyone know how wide these are? 7 or 8? how wide can i go with the new tires? any suggestions or advice would be great!

with the 2.5" lift, you can fit 32's fine......

remember Stone, you have a 2wd, so he is another 2" taller than your truck with the 4wd...

just remember the bigger u go the faster u go threw gas, and not to mention mudd terrains... if u do alot of highway driving you can kiss them good bye... mudd terrains are soft and conform 2 the ground, thats one reason there good at muddin they conform to the ground and mudd.. when u take them on the road and esp on the highway the road eats the tires up like a fat person at a all u can eat buffe

Not all mud terrains are like that anymore. A lot of the name brand tires now get really good life. I think the BFGoodrich M/Ts can get upwards of 30k

Thats not too long. I had car tires that were good for like 110 000 km. I guess for a truck, it's totally different!

BLA NO in the rear yes... my truck is sitting higher then my 4x4 splash in the drive way... not in the back but front yes...

4x4 only come with a block in the rear..

they actually have the same front coils the only reason its a tad higher is the mounting on the TTB is thicker...

so i found a decent deal on some Super Swamper TrXus STS All Terrain Radials. i am planning on getting 32X11.50X15. What do you guys think? How do they wear? come to think of it, i am not really worried about my gas mileage that much. i read that you only lose a mile or two. Anhy pics would be wonderful!

I always heard you weren't supposed to put big tires on OEM wheels.
