Default what tire?

I have a 94 jimmy with 16 inch chrome rims on it, i recentley had fat off roading tires with my chrome rims. It didnt look so bad but i realized skinnier tires look better with rims. I was wondering what kind of skinny tire i could get that could hold my truck weight and at the same time be enought tire to pad my rims so they wont crack, any suggestion on tires?

I gather you have aluminum rims and a S10 Jimmy?

Even if it is a fullsize, Light Truck tires are what your after. Passenger tires will work, however they make the truck squirrelly when your hauling a load or towing. Load rating "C" should be fine. Check your door sticker and see what it came with. Then check the tire manufacture web sites, they list the load ratings of each tire.

Sorry, S15.
Passenger tires have less cords in teh sidewall. The sidewall of a tire is what carries the load/weight of the vehicle and its cargo. Any tire you run will be fine. Look at the tire manufactures wedsites. They list the tires size, load ratings, and rims they fit. In your case I would compare a 235/75R15 tire to something that is the same diameter and width but in a 16" wheel. Keep the diameter to 29" or so and you will maintain the factory spec.
