Comparison request...

If you have 225 or 235 A/T tires, can you post a pic of your truck from the side?

If you have 255 or 265 A/T tires, same deal?

I'm trying to decide whether to stay stock-ish or bite the bullet and go for a body lift

if you went with a bodylif and 265 your truck would look gayer than stock and tiny tires. ****, I'm pretty sure my truck came STOCK with 255.


Even a body lift and 31s is kinda okay. Body lift and 32s would look the minimum of okay.


I don't know if your truck is 2 or 4wd..but then again i dont really care i just like big tires.

Why do you always feel the need to be so rude?



ns_red do you have a bodylift, or is that stock height with 265's?

Ehh I knew it was a lil harsh. I didn't mean your truck looked gay. I was trying to say that slightly bigger tires with body lift would look worse than stock tires with stock height. Because body lift leaves big ol gaps.

From your sig I see your truck is a 94. My truck was stock suspension except helper springs in the rear for towing. Here's my 94 with 265/75/15's
