Excellent choice! They make the truck. Pics are a bit dark to make out the details. What are they 700x15, 700x16, 750x16? Look like bias ply to me. Very nice fridge too. Factory 4x4?

Yes, 750 x 16, Bias. It is a factory 4x4, pretty much original, Im trying to keep it as close as I can. I did put some aftermarket locking hubs on it though. I dont think that will get me cookies from the darkside.

Ray; your truck looks great! I too think these trucks look best with tall narrow tires. When I finally get to the point of buying tires and wheels, my plans are to go with radials 255 85r 16's on stock style steel wheels. The narrowest 33 inch tire I could find.
Warn locking hubs were an option so I think your safe.

Very cool! I really dig the factory look, especially with the factory 4x4s. Do be sure to post more pictures when all four are installed.

Actually all 4 are installed, I need to post some pics once the radiator is back in, and I can get the truck outside in some daylight.

I am one of the most slender looking "Lima Bean', shape fellas that you will ever meet! If I were a tire I would be a Wide Oval!

Now thats what Im talking about. Looks great set up with stock wheels and tall tires specially the mud and snow traction tire. Thats my plan for my 65f100 4x4 just have to find 2 more 16" innie wheels.

Truck looks great! What is the size and specs on the tires?

If you don't mind, where did you get them from?

I really like the tall skinny look on these trucks as well.

The tires are 7.50 x 16 Super Traxion LT tube type, Made by Specialty Tires of America. I bought them thru my local tire guy. Specialty Tires of America, I dont know what the issue was but I waited 5 weeks for them. Mabye I just need to learn more patience.

Thanks for posting the info. Your truck looks very tough! I can't wait to start working on my truck again. I would love to see some pics of your truck in better light.

Carl.
