well that tire converts to a 30" tire with it being stock you might be able to run a 31 with out rubbing

When my 97 4x4 was stock, 31x10.50's would rub slightly at full turn.

Mine is a 03 Edge so its got the 2 in rear blocks and t-bars in the front. Without the t-bars cranked up on the 2wd my new 31x10.5x15 dont rub anywhere. 31's would be a safe bet i would say.

True. I'm just saying that at fully stock height, mine scrubbed. He should be able to crank the t-bars and be fine with 31x10.50's.

Cranking the bolts a couple times should give you enough room for 31's. Remember though, that cranking the bolts will probably throw your alignment out of whack.

Why do you want to go up in size? Right now your truck is optimized for the stock size tire. IMO a taller tire is harder to start off with in the snow because you are more likely to start spinning. I would buy a stock size tire with fairly large lug voids for the snow and lots of tire siping and studs for the ice. Buy some rims to put them on, in the long run you'll save money. If your going for looks then :question: Richard

true..im looking for a more aggressive tire..i dont need height, but all the tires i want come in 31's..i saw some bf authority? those looked nice but dont come in my stock size..there are also federals that dont come in my stock size..the only ones i found that i sorta like are the general grabbers at2..

265 70 r15 is 31 inch tires then?.

This size actually equates to 30.6"x10.4"

So it's probably about as close as you will get.



edit... put in the wrong size... LOL
