Tire height limit?

How tall roughly can you go on a 4x2 xlt? will 33's or 34's fit with no issues unless you go lock to lock with the tires? looking at getting some nitto terra grapplers and later getting a readylift 3.5 inch lift.

Thanks for the help

Well I think 33"s will be fine.
but if your getting a 3.5" lift. I'd wait and get 35's
as 33's might look a tad small after the lift.


My factory 20's are 32" overall height. so thats why i say 33's should be fine.

Are there any shops here in Ontario that do truck tuning via dyno? I usually go to Steeda here in Milton for dyno tuning but they said they really dont do anything with trucks

Thank you I appreciate it, forgot about them.

Do guys bother with custom tunes for our trucks or go with those preloaded tunes that are offered? Really im only looking for a way to change tire sizes but any extra fuel mileage or pulling power would be great too.

I run a superchips, K&N intake. and MBRP exhaust.
superchips has tunes for various intake manufactures. K&N is one of the highest HP and Torque gain over the rest.

So I downloaded it. and truck runs way better then stock. Also can adjust shifting, tire size and other things. Very easy to use.
Even if you don't go air intake, you will notice big gains over the stock programming. and will have different options depending on what your going to do with the truck.

sct is a good one also to use its a little more pricey as well but if you plan to do lot of mods to the truck its a little better then the superchips programer but we did see a huge improvement from travis truck with the programer on his truck
