Tire size question

I"m thinking of getting 31 x 11.00 x 15 Interco TSL / Thornbirds. I was wondering if these would fit my truck if with a 2" lift and stock wheels? It sounds like an odd size so I thought I would ask first. Also does anyone have any experience with these tires?

I have a 96. Now I've been reading about these tires and you guys seem to think the suck. I just found a set of these for $45 plus $80 shipping. It's hard to pass a price like this. They have to be better than my 265x75x15 Goodyear Wranglers right?

OK just to be clear, 31x11x15 will be ok on a stock 7" wheel and a 2" lift?

take a look at this auction and make sure I'm not missing anything. I might end up getting them.

1996 with the I-beam suspension you can just put a 2" lift block on the front and run those with stock wheels hell i have 32x11.5x15 on mine...

but another thing what are you using these Thorbirds for cause they suck in everything if its just for looks there great but other then that they blow...

That's so funny! He changed the damn auction, it used to say $45 for all four tires. Then this morning he changed it to $45 a pop, now he changed it when I got home from work to $160. I e-mailed him to confirm the price, he probably realized he screwed up and changed it


Sorry for not having a sig. before I just added it so you guys have an idea what I have. This is basicly a low budget build. I just had to put a new clutch and slave ford slave system in it for the second time last week. The place that did it last time (AAMCO) did a crap job and it never worked right and I paid about $750 for it and I only paid $500 for the truck. It's just my daily driver and ocasional off roader. I have a 1990 Grand Am I have a lot of time and money in and 2 kids and a wife to support. I love this truck though and want it to be nice as it can be for cheap. So far the hubs cost me $80, springs $130 I just bought Superlift shocks brand new for $7 a pop, and the spicer kit to convert to manual lock was only $22. All I need now is a rear lift shackle to get that a little higher because it already has blocks from the factory and I still need alignment cams for the front. If anyone knows where to get these two things cheap hook me up with a link or something please.

I'll still shop around for tires, I want something aggresive but cheap. I just thought those were a steal so I was checking with you guys if they will fit. I think I'm going 31x10.5x15.

Thanks for all the input guys, this place rules!
