Would you say they fill the wheel well pretty good? Right now I have stock 265/60/18's and they seem tiny as hell on the back end, but I plan on getting Bridgestone Revo 2's 265/70/18

Yeah, I don't think you could go wrong with that tire/size combo. It's going to look good!

Ha, Curtis I knew that was Green River before I even saw your location info. I spend too much of my life at the Oak Tree. What leveling setup did you use?

But its nice to know there other people on this fourm that are from the wyoming area

I used to run 305/55/20 before my lift, and I believe they are 33.1 tall. Don't think you can go any larger than a 33" equivalent.

Isn't the 305/ only count as how wide the tire is, and 55 would make it semi tiny as in height? I thought the higher the middle number like say 90 would be a damn tall tire, and 265 would mean it's not so thick horizontally going Into your wheel well

Something like that. You have to remember that the side wall (55) is off a 20" rim, not an 18" so those numbers don't equate. All I know I the stock size was roughly 32.1 in height , and you can't fit much larger than a 33 in there with stock suspension. I have a 4" lift and still had to do very minor trimming with my 35's. people get away with 35's on leveling kits apparantely tho

Haha damn, yea today I went into America's tire and they said the 275/70/18's won't fit because of my front bumper. And I figured a 1/4 inch won't make a difference compared to the 265/70/18's I'm going to get anyways.

the wheel size has very little to do with the tire dimensions as far as if its 17" or 22"
the numbers that tell the size are the tread width and aspect ratio of the sidewall
275/70/18 would be 33.4" diameter
285/60/20 comes out to 33.5"
265/70/18 comes out to 32.6" diameter
all tire manufacturing dont come out exactly the same though and there is some varience

Learning more and more everyday about my beautiful truck, yea I want the sidewall to be the highest and I don't want to have the tire rubbing, so I think I am going with a 265/70/18. Just to be safe so I don't have to spend anymore money, I'm a struggling student lol

if the tire and wheel deal works out for me i should gain some performance like going from the 3.55 rear to a 3.73 rear because i will be changing from a
265/70/17 which is 31.6" to a
265/60/18 which is 30.5"
