Default 33x12.5 or 285/75



33x12.5x15 - $142.00

I'm buying new rims also, so I want to figure what tire first. What should I go with?

the 285 and the 33's are practicly the same so go with watever one you want. like kyle said i hope you have a heathly sawz-all to do ALOT of trimming or i hope you have a couple grand stashed away to get a 6" lift kit.

I'm getting rid of the roundness of the wells, and going for more of the rectangle like silveradoes have. I already have it all drawn and planned out.

I would stay with 15"s since they are cheaper to buy and will give you a hair more sidewall flex during off-road adventures.

Be sure to post some pics of this, I am sure that we are all just a little curious to see how it turns out.
