Questions bout 245 and 255s

On my truck I have 15" rims with the front being 225/70/15 and the back being 275/60/15. I want to buy some tires for the front but could I get 245s or 255s to even fit without a body lift or anything on a XLT 2wd? I would go like 245/60/15.

245/60/15 is like a 27" tire, you should be fine.

So you have two different tire sizes on your truck? Why?

Ok, another retarded question, why? what is the point? I can understand maybe a track vehicle, but why a vehicle driven on the street.

I just mainly like the look. Im thinking 255 in the front and 275 in the back, maybe lower it down a bit. Im tinkering with ideas. No one else here really does it so im trying something. Everyone goes lift, I go wider back tires. Mainly I needed the new tires because with 4:10's the rear tires became some what useless.

Im drunk so this might not make sense....

actually, its a style called "BIG AND LITTLES", its a style that goes a long ways back to the 50's hotrod days. and on the right set up, lowered, maybe a body kit, it will be LOOKIN GOOD!, just a pain when you go to get tires, seeing as how you can't rotate them, of course, unless you have two sets! :{D
