next step up tire size from 265/75r16? Want bigger tires

Back on this again.

Ive got 265/75r16's on my truck with a 2" leveling kit on the front and will have a 1-2" block lift on the back.

I need new tires anyways and want to get them a little bigger.

So what should I go with?

Will not be buying new rims.

If you are sticking with the factory wheels go up to a 285/75R16. Will still be a little small with the small amount of lift you have but it will fill the gap a little bit better.

Its rear wheel drive

Id like to get some that are a little taller.

I've got 265/75r16

The 265/285 is the width, the 65/75 is the tallness isnt' it?

Id like to get like a 85r16 or 90 or something.

Is that posible?

the first number is the tread width in mm.
the 2nd numebr is the % of the tread width that corresponds with the sidewall height
the R means it s a radial
the last number is it's wheel diameter.

you may be able to find a 265/85R15... you'll just have to look around at tire manufacture or dealer web sites. try discounttire.com or tirerack.com to see what's out there

If you put 285 75 r16 on the factory rim it will be around 33" compared to the factory 31" but will not wear correctly due to needing a wider rim. You are also around 11" wide putting more rubber on the road lowering mileage. This is my opinion from experience.

If you just want more height, go to a 255 85 r16. It will still be 33" high and will only be around 10" wide instead of 11" on a 285 75. It will also wear correctly on the rim. This will keep less rubber on the road keeping mileage up and give you more height to fill the cavity as well as gear it higher to help mileage.

The height is what I'm wanting. But just a little bit.

So you said a 255 85 r16

Since the ones I have now are a 265 75 r 16 can I keep the 265 and just see if I can find a 85r16

Question

I don't think you can get an aspect ratio higher than 75 without sacrificing width. I am looking at tires for myself and took the liberty of running some different sizes for you.

would it hurt it to put a 285 on that stock rim?
