what tire / size are you running?

stock size? oversized? let us know...

stock right now.. 255/70R17
but I'm researching/ looking into what size I want to upgrade too.
I think it is down between either of the 2

MickeyT Baja MTZ in a 33x13.5R18
or
Toyo Open Country M/T in a 33x12.50R18


That would be about a 2" overall diameter oversize difference.

31X10.5's BFG Mud terrains on my 1994 F-150. I get some tire rub on the radius arms if I crank it all the way. Would like to figure out a solution for that. But those tires sure crawl down the trail nice!

285/75/16 BFG AT's. Put first set on truck when new, got 80K out of them, put on a set of **** Cepek FC II's and put 20K on them, until we had a snotty snow fall, truck slid sideways down my driveway against the retaining wall, $3K damage, now back to another new set of BF's. The FC II's were OK in dirt or muck, but sucked for use on snow. Oh well, live and learn.

Stock rims, BFG T/A KO 285/75/R16 (33x11) Good tires, I'm thinking of going to T/A KO 315's but I don't want to mess up my ratios, there at 3.55 stock and it probly costs an arm and a leg to change gears + new tires.

You have plenty of room for the larger tires with the lift kit you have, but you will notice a difference with the bottom end if you keep the 3:55 gears. The more you do, the more it costs, isn't it grand?

Ya that has to be hard on the u-joints and tranny, that's what I'm worried about.

Klewis you have almost the same truck, what gears are you running and hows it feel different from when you had smaller tires, any problems???
