I have seen countless comments on tire size for a leveled truck. Most people running 33x12.5 on a leveled rig. 275/70r18 is a 33.2" tire and I'll be honest, they look like doughnuts. Now the width of the tire can play a role in how the tires look. I'm going to make the jump... 35x12.5r18 General Grabbers on stock lariat wheels. I know someone will say it won't work or they wouldn't do it. I will cram them on and let everyone know how it goes. 1426084927323-294584644.jpg

To me it is the width that make them look funny, and 275/ 70 is tall and skinny. Personally if I was going to go with a 12.5 width, which do look good (aggresive) I would go with a 33x12.5. JMO

The only issue i would see would be rim width with a 12.5 tire as I have no idea how wide stock lariat rims are and with a 12.5" wide tire on really anything less than 9.5" wide rim is gonna caust the middle of the tread to bow out and wear quicker down the middle of the tire (i've seen a few people around town putting wide tires on their stock rims and the centre is wearing way faster than normal)

I agree the width makes a set of tires look awesome. I ran some 285/75r18 KM2'S on my truck before. I think I ruined 33's for myself when I ran them on my 95 Tacoma lol.

I'm terrible at remembering numbers. But isn't there a 305/75r18. Why don't I hear much on that, I'd like to see pictures of those.

I know Mastercraft has a 305/70r18 and that's around 34.8 x 11.6" I believe. Tires should be in this week I'm ready to get them
