I have my first question

I have decided to get rid of the Goodcrap tires that come with my truck (2008 Mazda B4000 SE, in case u didnt read my intruduction post).....this is my 3rd mazda and i get rid of the tires from goodyear as soon as i can.

Anyways I am getting BFGoodrich A/T tires so my question is the truck comes with stock 255/70R16 tires and if I do the 1-2" (probally 1.5") TB lift what are the biggest tires i can put on those 16's without any other modding. I was thinking maybe LT315/75R16.

Any thoughts thanks.

You know that size you posted i almost a 35 in tall tire. Doubt you will fit that with just a t-crank,would require ALOT of cutting. 265s is what you want, its about a 31.

Or go with a 32, bigger is better.
