New guy from Western Washington

Hey everyone,

I've been lurking in the shadows of this site for months learning about my future truck. Thanks to all of the information on this site, I figured out what I wanted and finally was able to find it. I just bought it Monday.

Anyway, the truck is completly bone-stock, unmolested in every way and has been garaged it's entire life. I got pretty lucky. It's got the factory sized tires on 16 inch wheels. I actually like the fancy Lariat polished aluminum wheels and would like to keep them, but I kind of wanted 35's which they don't make in 16's. Can anyone tell me if the 315/75-16 will be about the same and if they'll fit my wheels?

Thanks!

Howdy and Welcome, yes the 315's will be the same as the 35's and they will fit your wheels

Thanks for answering my question on the tires. Now as far as lifts go, the more I read, the more confused I get. Too many choices....4 inches is all I want, safety, good handling, and towing capabilites are important.

Thanks again.
