New tires soon.

I'll be looking for new tires soon and would like to do something bigger. Have the factory rims that I would like to stay with for now and current tire is 275/70/18. My knowledge of the bigger tire sizes would be bad at best, any suggestions of a bigger size for my factory rims? I believe they are 7.5" wide.

According to a tire dealer website, plus zero sizes are 285/70-18 and 295/65-18 zero meaning factory wheel size.

OK I'm showing my ignorance, but aren't they too wide cod the factory rims? I'm not a 100% but it think the rims are only 7.5 wide.

OEM wheels are 8" wide. Most tires around 11" wide will work. Bigger than that can have long term wear issues. I'd get some TOYO AT II's .

OK, then the rims are just little wider than I thought. Knowing that helps a lot.

Well from the response and what I researched online the 35x12.5x18 has a min rim width of 8.5 and if the stock rims are 8, than the should fit OK.
