The truck has 15x8 wheels and 255/70R15s all the way around. It steers like crap and the tread sticks out to far. The tires look new but are date coded 2001.
Im trying to figure out the best wheel/tire combo to fill the wheel wells.
Issues Im wrestling with:
1. Do I lower the truck or leave it stock.
2. I think I have 3.10 gears, leave them or install my 2.75s. If I go lower and a short tire, the 2.75s are good, a tall tire the 3.10s are better. 5.0 and AOD, definitely the 3.10s or lower.
3. 15x6 and wide whites, 16x6 and a tall blackwall, TTDs and 235/75R15s all the way around, ???? Hankook has a 235/75R15 with a 5.8in wide tread, that would be great for the front to ease steering.
Im looking for some ideas, nearly all the flareside pics I see are oem with short tires that leave a huge gap in the rear wheel well or they are slammed. I have a pretty steep driveway so slammed is out, 2-3 lower is all I can do in the front, 3-4 in the rear. With the current 255/75R15s I have about a 5in gap in the rear fender.
