Just stick a tape measure though the spoke of the wheel and measure. Won't be exact, but will be enough to help decide on tire width.

Lol...I did that earlier today and got a measurement of 9". Does this sound about right? 17x9...
Thanks again for the Tip.

I would like to go with as big a tire I can without adding a lift or leveling kit. I'm thinking 285's on my stock wheels. That would come out to LT285x70Rx17.

These stock Generals are awsome! There sticky and grip really well. They have a pretty good tread design and there built with that Dura something. Any ideas on what brand tire? I don't haul much, trailering that is, just alot of highway driving maybe alittle offroading when the opportunity presents itself. So, what do you guys think on the tire selections?

9'' does sound a little wide for a stock wheel, but you never know. I would go with a 285. I have 285's on my 01 250 and like them, no leveling kit. No rubbing and the tire selection is great.

I personally like the Toyo a/t's. I have them on both my trucks. They are very affordable, wear good, and last about 40-60k.

Funny you mention Toyos, I had a set of AT's and loved them. I already checked and they are avail. in the size I'm interested in. Great tire and they look good on good wheels.
