what size tires??

ok so im gonna get a body lift for my 2wd xlt. i looked at the tire size chart it says i can run 32x11.50r15s no problem. my question is does mud tread make a diffrence vs. just an at? or does it fit the same? also in any ones opinion 31s or 32s?? any suggestions on a cheap mud tire in either of those sizes would be awesome. thanks everyone in advance

AT's, MT's, it doesn't make a difference. If they say they're 32's, they're around 32". So to answer your question, they measure the same.

Once you put the body lift on go with 32's. Since you're looking at 32x11.50's then you won't have any rubbing and it's going to look great. I say go for it!

11.50's will be perfect on an 8" rim. As for the offset, it all depends on the backspacing of the wheels you get.

Mud tire will definately look better IMO. I wish I would have gottent them. But they are more expensive, and ride rougher in most cases. But hey, its your truck. I say go for it!

I'm not sure on how much you want to spend but if you're looking for a nice MT and you don't wheel a lot check out the BFG KM2's. They're great for everyday driving and get great wear. They might cost you a little more up front but they'll be worth it in the long run.

Oh and with the backspacing on your rims they will work great. You shouldn't have any rubbing.

Body lift isn't expensive at all. Are you having somebody else install it?
