I found a dealer nearby that carries Nitto's and from what I saw at their site they have a nice selection... 265s-285s lol


my next question can the Ford place recalibrate my speedo to match the bigger tires???

You will be very happy with the Nittos if thats the route you go. Mine are wearing awsome and still look like new and I have had them since November '08.

The dealer can redo your speedo.

What size do you have now? If you have a GPS you can record your current speeds and when you get new tires you can see what it changes to.

You sure those are 265's? Thats only a 31 in tire.

I would say you crank your t-bars and get an aal or shackle and get 265's.

Get the 265's and crank the t-bars and get a shackle or AAL in the back like I said.

Either way you go about it its not going to cost much.
