Question on tires..

Hey, i found some tires im getting brand new cost around 575 all together but my question is, from your stand point would you lift the truck with these tires? they are the wild country rvt's 31x10.50x15.. heres a link to a cardomain who has them.. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/499761/2 what you guys think? any suggestions?

Na you don't need to lift the truck for 31's. They look kinda small if you have a 3" lift.

I think so. They look like a good agressive tire, I don't have any expierience with them so I can't give my opinion that way.

trigger ya... i think the 31's are my only option.. id love 32's but so many people said i need to re gear which is out of the question (i have a 4x4 and not mechanically inclined) so id have to have someone do it..

I hear that, That(regearing) is a 1 of 2 things holding me back from lifting and 33's.

If it helps at all, I have the Wild Country TXR's. I love them. The TXR's are not quite as aggressive of a tread but still are pretty meaty. I had a set on my old blazer and easily got 55000 miles out of them. I think they are an awesome tire for the money. I could only assume that the RVT will be comparable. Just my $.02!!

You could fit 32's on there, but I think you'd rub, I don't know about regearing with 32's. 33's you'd need to regear.

id recomend getting some 4.10s if you plan on any offroading... 3.73 might be ok for all street use, but id recomend either 4,10s or 31's....

I'm not sure huge tires is such a great idea for you. I think you can get away with 31's just fine. 32's would be pushing it. 33's, at this point, is probably not a real option, due to lack of a lift, and the gearing. A lot of people with the 4.0L go from 4.10 to 4.56 to accomodate 33's. I think the 31's would be the most practical application for you, especially if it's used as a daily driver. Just my 2 cents.
