few questions

I have decided to keep my 96 psd for a while having a lot of fun getting into the diesel performance just rolled 99k odo. So far i have done a k&n fipk, mbrp 4" w/ 3"dp, and dp tuners chip with a bunch of settings. I was looking into either propane or nitrous to embarass some of the new trucks . What are the positives and negatives of both? Is there anyone else running either? But first i have to get rid of the stock wheels and tires. I'm looking at a set of Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels 16x8 and a set of mickey tires (probly atz radial) my question is what is the biggest size i can go with? It looks like 33's will be a very tight squeeze and i was trying to stay away from a lift since its only 2wd. Right now it has 235/85r16 and they look down right dumb!

Thanks for the help,
Adam

I'm not sure about the tire question.

I think you would be happier with a set of stage 1 injectors. You can get a set for about the price of a good NOS or propane kit. These trucks need fuel.

the no2 injection can cause turbo overspeeding, no2 backfire, also no2 is hard on the turbo because it hits it all at once causing the turbo to work harder and spin faster.
although a .035 should net you approx. 50 extra ponies or a .070 100 to 150 extra. I know that in gassers the engine needs to be rebuilt once in awhile with no2 use, not sure about diesels but i would think that the same theory applies.

the MT Classic II's are very nice, not too pricey either. Does your truck have the aluminum factory wheels or the steel ones? I'm looking for some of the Factory aluminum ones for cheap.

They are these wheels. I think are aluminium, but don't quote me.

yeah theyre alluminum on the tires 265s are about as big as you can get w/ absolutely no rubbing and 285s rub but just a little bit. those tires dont look as bad on your truck bu they look reaaly dumb on a crew cab long bed (my 285s bfg all terrains look really good)

I think i'm gonna go with the 285/75r16 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ Radial, on a set of 16x8 classic II's. According to comparsion chart they are the same circumference and will only throw my speedo off by .06mph. I'm suprised i cant run the 305/70's is the width a little to much? The 235/85's on there right now have a ton of room.

I can get the hole package for under 1k, i hope it gives the truck a more agressive look. Next is to dump the topper, get a truck box, and diamond plate bed rail protectors.
