Tell ya what not to look for, :) I have 295/70/R17 Nito trail grapplers on and they have been in three times for balancing, could be I need to take them to another shop or there just really hard to get balanced.
Last time I took them in I noticed a used set for sale,
I like the look and seem to perform well in the mud but sure shake and rumble the truck at hwy speed and when you slow to a stop at around 20 mph or so they sound like a dragster idling beside you.
I kinda like that part.
Not sure what the size conversion would be I guess around 32 or 33 inch tall.
Oh ya they get louder the older they get,and the howl, wonder what the Mickys are like

Most on here go with a 33" tall tire after a BL. What size of wheels do you want?

I guess I'll get 15" wheels and 33s. Does anyone know if the toyo open country mt are any good? I'm kinda looking for that type of look. Or does anyone recommend tires?
Thanks for the help!

dont blow money on MT's to look kool. function over form. Your truck will spend more time on the public streets so I would go for all terrain type tire. Ive never been let down in any situation while wheeling and when a high intensity situation arises on the street I always have grip no matter the conditions. Plus they cost less and wear better.

your price per tire will go up significantly with an 18" wheel but i'm sure you know that. I'd personally go with a 15. 35's look good with a 17"

toyos will lighten up your wallet pretty good. stick with 15's. tires are cheaper and duratracs from what i hear are awesome tires.

You'll want either 15x8s or 15x10s for 33x12.5x15s. I prefer the look with 15x8s, some prefer the 10s.
