Tires are in! Pics added! --- Quick question b4 I get my new tires next week...

Pics are in: I am happy I got the 30's, the 31's would be too stuffed.








I am getting some new BFG T/A's next week.

I have a stock 03 XLT supercab 2wd (yes, thats coils up front, not torision bars). I have 15x7 stock stealies on her. In addition, I am running a R5 axle (8.8", 3.55 gears with L/S).

I plan on getting 30x9.5x15 BFG's. This is upgrading from the 225/75/15's I have right now. I don't want to have to deal with rubbing and cutting, so thats why I settled on 30's.

I am in a bit of a pickle, I have to pay before I order the tires, so once I pay I am committed. Its not like I can see them beforehand. But I am getting a good deal

Is all OK, or does anybody see any problems with this setup including my gear ratio that I should know before I go spend several 100 dollars? Or will it work out well in the end?

Those tires will work perfectly for you.. down the road you may choose perhaps to switch into 4.10 gearing.. but your 3.55's should work well for now, good gas mileage No rubbing issues should happen either
