    On your truck a 315/75/16 or 35X12.50X16 would work. They are relatively the same thing.

    You dont want to put anything more than a 12.50 on there for sure tho. Your not suppose to put a tire more than 4 inches wider on a wheel really. And i think those stockers are like 16X7.5 or so.

    Stock NBS 2500 wheels are 16 x 6.5. But a 315 looks good on there.

    Like everyone else said... the HD alloy PYO's are 16x6.5" wide. You can run a 12.50 tire on there w/out any issues. Just watch your pressures and rotate regularly to keep the wear even throughout the set.

    Where are you at in Avondale and whats your truck look like? Maybe I've seen you around.

    yeah it has 285s now but i want the little extra lift the 315s will give me. I really wanna lift my truck but heard it'll cause problems come plowing time. im eventually gonna put a leveling kit on it and get bigger wheels and tires. Eric said he'd put the leveling kit on for me
