I've got those tires and like them a lot. As far as size, i'm not sure. i've got 31x10.50x15 on my 2002 FX4 but probably could have gone with 32x11.50x15 with cranking the t-bars a little bit. When you buy the tires, price them at discounttires.com or treadepot.com and take the ad into discount tire and they will match the price. i got mine for $670 out the door at discount tire that way.

You could go with a 32x11.5 or a 33x10.5 if you have torsion bars, 31x10.5 if your coil sprung. Might be a little rubbing though.

lol 32 sounds good to me..but whats "cranking the t-bars"?? and its all stock suspension..im going to be changing it soon, im thinking max-air shock absorbers for the rear cuz i carry alot of weight and trailer ect..i dont know how much higher the truck will sit after i install that and some new shocks for the frount the truck as 155,000 miles on it but just got a used motor with 50k on it..i guess ill have to wait till i get the air shocks..dose anyone recommend any other type of suspension that will lift that truck some and be able to handle weight? thanks for all the responds very help full!!!
