tire size simulator

hey all. i have 265/75/16's and i wanna go a little bigger for better performance off road. im not ashamed to admit i want them to look cool on the truck so id like to see what different sizes will look like ahead of time.

is there a website anywhere that will allow me to look through different size tires and see what they look like on the truck?

I'm not aware of one, but I can tell you 31x10.50r15's look great on a stock truck. Level the front out and some 32x11.50's would look about perfect.

for starters his truck is listed as a f250 under his name
265/75/r16 tires work out to 31.6"tall and 10.5"wide

sorry about the bad picture
i had Cooper DISCOVERER STT LT285/75R16 works out to 33"x11" on my 86 f250 and thought they fit just nice on a stock suspension

I did's see that. Almost no one uses that garage thing, so I don't look at it. Most are F-150's, so I assumed...

a great tire calculator site is Tire size calculator

you can see and compare the height and widths, it also calculates the rotation, and mph offset. A really easy and well built tool.

I only have an F-150 but I have 33/12.50 on my truck. Leveled the front but no lift.
