Body lift, size tires?

Doing a 3" BL lift by PA and wondering which size tires?


Nitto Terra Grappler
LT315/75 R16

Nitto Terra Grappler
LT305/70 R16

Nitto Terra Grappler
LT325/70 R16


And then the rims are 16x9. I want the rims, but the smallest is 16x9 so if the nittos don't fit can someone find me a ize and brand that will fit my lift and the rims? please

No no no. Not trying to be a jerk, but have you measured your stock tires? They might be a 245/75R16 but they aren't 24 inches tall. They are at least 29". The first number is the tires section width in millimeters and the second number is the aspect ratio. What that means is the sidewall is whatever percentage of the section width. So 245mm*.75=183.75mm. So that sidewall is only worth one side, so you need to double that number. So 367.5mm in sidewall height plus the rim size. So the sidewall height is 14.4 inches and that plus the rim's size of 16= ~30.5" tall tire. mm to in conversion multiply millimeters by 0.03937.

That link should help you calculate what size you want and how much the speedometer will be off. You'd be fine with the 305/70R16. They are 32.8 inches tall.

lol, go look at your wheel on the truck, theres only 5 studs. not 6.

but you can buy those 6x5.5s and when you find out they dont fit, you can sell them to me for cheap so i can put them on when i get the solid axle under there.
