hey guys I just got some 22's for my 06 rcsb and am looking for the right tire size to throw on this truck. Im probably not going to be dropping it any time soon, so dont have to worry about that part. as for tire sizes what i have come up with is 285/45/22 or 265/40/22 lemme know what you guys think.
oh ya the wheels are 9.5" wide

with a 9.5" rim width id reccomend 305/40-22 or 305/45-22's


the 265 wont be width enough for a 9.5" rim and the 285/45-22 is kind of an oddball size (exspensive/less choices)

305/40-22 is about 1/2" wider then a 285 and it has a 4.8" sidewall, which is nice on a fullsize truck. 305/45-22 has a little less then 1" more sidewall.
I have this tire on my truck and love them, MUCH better then the goodyear GT II's that I had previously, cant beat the price either ! very cheap at tirerack!
