tire fitment and cold start help
Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but I have a 99 f250 extended cab long box with a 3 inch lift and I'm planning to put a set of 35 12.5 18 Toyo at2s on it am I'm just wondering if they will fit. I've had some people say yes and some say no so I'd just like to be prepared for any obstacles before I run into them. Also any feedback on the tires would be greatly appreciated. I'm getting a really good deal on them (700 mounted balanced and aligned)but if they aren't worth getting I'd like to save my money. I don't do very much off roading, maybe a little playing in the mud or sand but that's about it.
Also wondering about any known ways to help out with cold starts, I live in Michigan and last winter had a few really hard cold starts because my work doesn't offer any outlets to plug in and it sits outside from 10:30 at night until 7:00 am. I tried a jump start pack/inverter hooked to a Christmas tree timer set to start feeding the truck at 4:30 am but it wouldnt hold a charge long enough to even make it to 3am. I considered some type of 3rd battery set up to an inverter and charged by the alternator but don't want to waste time/money if there's a better way. Thanks for any help or suggestions
