So i'm a total noob...

...which is why i need advice from the experts on what tires i want. So generally i don't off road especially since the truck is on a 4x2 so though i grew up mostly in central florida i am not really much of a "good ol' boy" BUT i do go out to new smyrna beach a lot which for you none floridians is a beach with sugary sand that you are allowed to drive on, now i haven't gotten stuck yet BUT i have gotten close because it is such sugary sand, lol like to where i would almost consider paddle tires lol, but more than i drive in the sugary sand of florida i drive on our highways, so i need a tire that will still wear pretty well and have traction on asphalt during our summer thunderstorms.

As far as size i don't really have the money to lift my truck yet, but generally i like to look of minimal lift on big tires, so i looked at the tire size chart and that got me all excited BUT what i really need to know now is what tire i could really get ('00 xlt 4x2) i don't mind a little trimming so long as it is actually just a little.

dont quote me but with a 2000 2wd XLT you could fit 30x10.5R15s on a stock suspension. As for which type of tire i recomend the BFgoodrich A/Ts

awesome on the road, great off the road(especially in the sand). Best all around tire evar

Hey which rims do you have also? And do you get rub when you turn and such? Or just off roading?
