1st set of numbers (203 above) is the width of the tread in millimeters
2nd set of numbers (30 above) is the aspect ratio or the ratio of the tread width to the sidewall height. So to get the true sidewall height, you need to multiply 203 by 30% which equals 60.9 millimeters (2.4 inches).
The last set of numbers (15) is the diameter of the rim in inches.

So to get the outside diameter of the tire, you have to add the rim diameter, 15 inches to twice the side wall height. In the above case, a 203/30R15 tire is 19.8 inches in diameter (or would be if anyone made a tire of that exact size).

30" tires will fit on your stock rims, I would recomend BFGoodrich All Terrian AT's
in a 30"x9.50" R15

Otherwise if you are going to do a body lift you could fit 31"x10.5" R15 tires with most likely no triming other than removing one bolt. I am going to get 31x10.5 15's this fall and if you dont have pics by the time I get them I'll post some up once I am done. I am also planning on a 2" bodylift and a 1.5" tbar and 2" shackle lift.

Default RE: ok will this work

The tires would work with the rim, and the rim should work with your truck since it is a 5 on 4.75 bolt pattern. The only thing is that the rim has a backspacing of 4.25 inches compared to the stock rim which has about 6" on the 4x4 and 4" on the 4x2. This means that this rim will stick out about 1.75" further than stock, which should make it look good and do better for you so you dont rub and that you are going wider as you go higher (the rule of thumb is go 2" wider every 1" you go up). Hope this info helps you out.
