The two wheel drive XL comes with a p235/70R17 tire standard. Looks like you can get lower profile P255 and P265 tires also. I won't be mud bogging or anything like that, but I'm wondering if the narrower tire is better in snow and rain. Here in Michigan should I get the narrower tire? Would the wider tire tend to "float" on the snow and be more likely to hydroplane in the rain?
In Maine, very rarely do you see an efficient work truck with big tires mounted. The stock size tires are the most efficient for snow. I would actually look for an all terrain tire in the standard size, IMO.
