Time for New tires. 37's or 38'S???

Well ive decided that im gonna go with the kumho road venture mt kl71's since you cant beat the price and good reviews. Im just not sure if i should go with 37x13.5x20 or 38x15.5x20. Ive got a 8in fabtech. My ride is pretty ****ty now since im running 35's and tires are worn and probably need balance, but will the ride worsen with a 15.5in wide tire???? Opinions please

I would go with the 37s cause in my opinion a 15.5" tire is just too wide for my taste so i think the 37x13.5 would look good with your setup

I agree on the 37/13.50s.


IMO, you need more lift for 38/15.50s.

I would have to agree that 15.5 is a little too wide. I got 36x15.5 and the tires follow the ruts and patch lines on the roads. On some of the more traveled roads(yellow head trail for anyone in Edmonton), I have to fight to keep my truck in my own lane. Sure the wide tires have an aggressive look but 2" is not worth it.

I guess I'll be the lone vote for the 38's. They do wander all over the road but they look awesome. I can't stand a large lift with tires that look "skinny".
