Default Bought new tires today!

Dayton Timberline A/T II 235-75-15
$86 each mounted and balanced.


Bad thing now is that they have so much tread that they rub a little bit on sharp turns

x2, though mine aren't as aggressive as the ones you put on. No rubbing even before I cranked my T-bars to level out side to side.

EDIT: They look great though, how about a pic of them on your truck?

Only drove it home from the shop but it sounded like they were rubbing somewhere.
(I do have 175K miles and probably original shocks)

Can't really lift it either, My wife's the one that drives it most and she's only 5ft2in. She has a little bit of trouble getting in now as it is.

Not gonna get a pic anytime soon my poor truck is sort of "sick" LOL Doesn't want pics untill it feels better. (Cleaned upand a new mirror instead of ductape over the hole)

My guess is that it is just the sound of the more agressive tires at first on the pavement. There shouldn't be any rubbing as that is like a inch larger tire than stock, thats it.

235-75 is bigger than stock? I though the sticker said 235-75 on my doorjamb.

It's the same as I had on there before(though they were down to about 3/16 when I bought the truck) They were down to nothing on the outside of the fronts and probably 1/16 everywhere else.

my guess that if you now have rubbing compared to b4 due to the amount of tread they have then you may have a wheel alignment prob.... Try getting the alignment checked!!! see if its out of whack...

Had it aligned today too.

Though they did it with the old tires on. Which I thought was odd.

If that's what your doorjamb says then that's what's stock. Stock tire size on my '00 was 235/70/15 and when I bought new ones I mistakenly put 235/75's on which are .9 inches taller (28.9" vs 28") but still not enough to cause rubbing issues.

Here's a good site to compare tire sizes: CLICK
