Hey everyone,
I was talking with the goodyear dealer the other day about a set of Wrangler
AT/S tires for my 97 F150 4x4. For some strange reason Goodyear does not make
this tire in a 255/70 for a 16 inch wheel. So, I was considering going to the
265/70 (as opposed to the 245/70). The tire guy said that the tire would not
look right on a 16x7 wheel. Is he right, or just jerking me around? Has anyone
got this size tire mounted on a 7 inch wide wheel?

Also, since my truck is set up for the 255/70 16, what is involved (forthe
dealer) to change the speedometer setting to a 265/70 16? I would like to go to
the slightly bigger tire and would appreciate any advise.

Thanks, Jeff

well tell that guy to take a valve stem and smoke it. The F250s come with
265/75/16 stock and i have a 285/75/16 on it, althought i wouldnt recommend
over a 275/75/16. I am going to a 8" rim in a few months. On the speedo I
didnt seem to notice a whole lot of difference between a 265 and 285 speedo
wise, but once i get my new GPS will check it for differences.

Jeff,

Look for 255/70R16 it is just above the 265/70R16

Hey
I just bought a 1999 F-150 and have put 3,000 miles on it and now have
started this popping sound also---it sounds like its coming from the
converter on mine. I figure it will wear in..
Hum--interesting
