You're getting 15" wheels (VERY GOOD CHOICE), so most tires are going to be cheaper than 16+. I wish i had 15" wheels, or bought new wheels before i got my tires. I would recommend the BFG All terrains, i have them and so do alot of people. They look awesome, and as long as your not going deep mudding they will work on/offroad. Plus i've noticed they are very smooth on the highway, and very quiet as well. Not what I expected from an all terrain.

Unless your getting a better looking/better performing tire, if your not changing wheels, i wouldn't upgrade. What made you want the generals? Unless your tires are completely bald i wouldn't get them.

LOL I hope your kidding. I want BIGGER tires, and 2 of my tires are getting pretty bad. I plan on getting aftermarket wheels soon when I am working, so I will just unmount the tires off my stock wheels and swap. I plan on just painting those wheels black, should look ok. SOOOO will a 10.4 tire work? Stock is 10.5. It being a little narrower should be ok right?

it tire sizes the first number tells how wide your tires are in mm so are you sure your stock ones are 10.5" if so they would have to be 266.7's if you go and look on your tire and put the numbers on here we can help alittle bit more maybe

Stock is 225/70/15. I am buying 265/75/15s. Is that going to be a problem?

those stockers are 8.85" wide and about 27.39" tall i don't think the wheel is a problem but i'm not sure if you'll rub or not. someone else may be able to tell you about that. i was looking at those on ebay and for 280 you may be able to find them cheaper at your local tire shop. and keep in mind that someone will have to mount and balence them so add that to the price

Everyplace around here is like $100 a peice atleast for those tires. So you think those tires will mount fine? I know they will be a little narrower but they should still fit on the wheel, right? I dont think i will rub.
