hope they have a buy 4 get 1 free deal... I don't like the fact that I won't have a spare tire...

Cody....he's also an 08+ truck that sits 1 1/2 lower too....and no crank what so ever.

Honestly....I'd go ahead and do a slight crank and 265/75R16's or maybe even 255/75R16's on 15x8 w/ approx 3.625 or 4" backspace. I'd lean more towards the 3.625 as thatll sit the tire just outside the flare.


Whatever you do, just please steer the hell clear of Toyo Open Country All Terrains.

Wicked scary at high speeds on standing water on the freeway ruts. Sucks ***** on anything but dry pavement.

they can, but ONLY with stock tire sizes, so 235/75/15 245/75/16 or 31x10.5

my truck was stock 4.10 gears, 235/75/15 to have the speedo right for my 33x12.5 tires, they had to change my tire size and gear ratio to make them work.
