Anyone in Brampton (or closer) with 31s? Help?

Okay, time to stick my neck out.

After a recent incident I feel unsafe in my little truck. I feel the need for bigger tires, maybe more lift. If there's anyone around here (Brampton, or "within reason") that has 31s on their truck i'd like to ask a small favour of doing a test fit with your wheels PLEASE. Just two, I only want to do one side to see how well/poor they'd fit. If it'll work for me then i'll buy my own set. I'd like to avoid buying them only to find problems, know what I mean? I have my own tools and am more than capable of doing the work competently, without incident, if you are not.

If anyone cares to help let me know please.

Thanks.

with your setup 31s should fit fine with a slight rub at full turn having said that a test fit is always best if you can do it.

Well you do have 31s and I have vacation time comin' up. Manitoba ain't THAT far.

Contacted someone kinda local with a similar truck. Maybe i'll get lucky, maybe not.


I know they'll fit, I really just want to see how much of a necessity a body lift might be. I have been wrestling with changing my mind on what I want to do with my truck, so ..... sold the BL kit I had. (smacks self in forehead) And then there's STILL a part of me screaming to lower it.

Stupid brain.

I replied to you on RPS. We will just need to figure out a date.

Yes, gotta research tires a little more now. There's definitely not as much choice in 31s as a 235/75/15, and finding a "snow tire" in a 31 - forget it.

I'll post pics and such when I get further, don't worry!
