Duratracs rule. I do not think you will be unhappy with those in a 31, they'll look fine. difference between a 31 and a 32 is hardly noticable unless both tires are brand new and standing next to each other.. or like others have said, you could just do a BL and run 33s...

I love my Duratracs. If you plan on keeping the rest of the truck stock for a while, I'd definitely go with them in 31's! Or... BL, 33's and get some spacers for those Alcoas if you want to keep them!

265/75 R16 is a 31.9X10 tire. So a skinner 32. Its the size I have. And like ALL other Duratrac owners, I swear by this tire. However in the snow you need more than an inch. With just a light dusting they have nothing to bite into. But after it gets deeper they are pretty awesome. These tires dig like crazy off road.

You could do a 1" BL with wheel spacers, T-bar crank, and belltech shackles and do the 33 x 12.50's. which to me would be the better option because you frame wouldn't be sticking out from underneath the body or those big gaps underneath your bed and you would have more flex out of your rear suspension. plus all that would be cheaper than a 3" BL!

ya, thats actually a good option too, i was already looking at getting a set of the beltecks, and theres still quite a bit of bolt on the t bars, ill check the sites jason posted first, but i think thatll be the next best option, i never even really thought about just a 1 inch

i have a 1" on my truck i like it because its only like $50 and you cant really tell theres a BL on it but it gives you a little more room for flex. it helps with clearance on the front wheels.

did you by a kit, or did you do something to the bumpers or does it look ok with the little bit extra gap?

you can buy 1" pucks from performance accessories and you have to buy the bolts on your own make sure they are grade 8 though you dont need new bolts for the one up front though they are long enough to work. You can relocate your front bumper by drilling holes for the mounting bolts farther up or you can loosen the bolts and push up on your bumper and it closes some of the gap, I pushed mine up until they hit the tow hooks then tightened the bolts back and it looks better but the gap is bigger than stock but its not too bad. There is no way of moving the rear bumper up without making custom brackets but honestly in the back it doesnt look too bad. you cant really see a difference at first glance.

I get 20 mpg with these tires. I have about 20k on them and the factory little nubs have just finally worn off. These are listed as a commercial traction tire. Commercial in the aspect of lasting forever. I won't be surprised if you can get 85k or more out of these tires. They will last the life of your truck.

its not that hard to do by your self infact you can do most of it by yourself you shouldnt need too much help. i wouldnt waste your money on 31's if you really want 33's.
