35s with an add a leaf...

Had a tire problem the other day...



Since my tires were getting worn, I had to bite the bullet and get new tires. 305/70/16 tire were special order, but they had 315/75/16s in stock. They told me they'd mount one up for free so we could see if it'd fit.. and it did. So, I went with it. $1150 out the door later with all options (road hazard, lifetime rotate and balance, etc, this is what I got...





I get a bit of rubbing on the rubber inner fender liner, but nothing a dremel can't fix tomorrow. Yeah, I know, I need better pics. They're coming soon.

Thanks. I kinda wanted a different tire, but when it came down to it, I knew they would last the longest for what I was spending, and still offer decent traction.

Took a few pics...









This shows what I had to trim...



I still get a little rubbing at times on the rubber just to the right of the cut, but if I cut any further the plastic wouldn't be blocking the lower part of the fender. Did a similar cut on the passenger's side.

Notice any difference in power going to the 315's? Looks good by the way.

I've put maybe 20 miles on the truck since putting the tires on... Doesn't seem like it though. I do like how my highway RPMs have dropped. I can cruise 78 MPH at 2000 RPM. After spending $1150 on tires and $110 on fuel, the truck is only getting driven when necessary at the moment...

ah okay thanks. I was deciding between 33's or 35's on my truck and i will probably go with the 315's after seeing your truck. And i would like my highway rpms too drop too. I like the white letters out too with the chrome rims looks kind of old school.
