About how big is that in inches? To me, they look like they're 32'' x 8''.

The reason I ask is because to me they look like industrial tires, which is what I was initally looking for when I went tire shopping. I'm just trying to find out how the sizes run for tall and narrow tires, like for super duty's.

I got within three blocks of my home before having to turn back due to the water being up to my doors. Hurricane Ike turned my neighborhood into a salty river.
I crawled under my truck and sprayed what I could on the tranny with wd-40 and sprayed my entire frame with greese. My tranny has adopted a new oddity since then, however.



And here's my dad pointing out how high the water got in the garage. Three foot.

My old work truck was a 91 F350 regular cab with a hydraulic dump and a 7.3. I loved the engine. I like the 92 through 96 body style better.

I know a 285/75/16 is a 33x11 or so. A 275 is prob 32 or so. You can go up to 36 on that truck. Like my F350

302. Just passed 96,000 miles the other day. My dad bought it new, and has always kept it immaculate.

Only mods are K&N drop-in filter and a Flowmaster 50 series, and we've only had to replace some seals and gaskets...no major work.

She's a good ol' truck, the day I sell will be a sad one but I've just got to have a Superduty someday
