What tire size should I get?

So I might be getting Rong5's old tear drop rims and I wanted your opinion. I know I can fit like a 29-30" tire on my truck. The stock tire size on his truck was 235/70/R16. So do think I should stick with that or go to like a 245/70/R16? I dunno.. what do you think?

I might be wrong, but I think 2wd non edge = no T bars...

with no lift on your 4x2 XLT, 31's, like trigger suggested, would look ideal IMO.. good luck on your choice

I think I might go with 245/75/R16, which is like 30.5, which I hope will fit with no rubbing... Lift is out of the question. I would love to do one, but I don't have the time, money, space, or know how to do one, plus I might be getting a new truck in 1-2 years.

I say go with the 245/75R16 because of your truck height, it'll look the best. 31's would be awesome, but it *might* rub.



EDIT:

I recommend these: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....1=yes&place=18

These came stock on my truck, i've offroaded in them, etc, etc. They were pretty awesome for normal "street" tires.

Oh! and rain traction was pretty good.
