Are you planning to keep your stock wheels or upgrade them as well?

Your stock wheels are only 16x7. The factory 265/75R16 is really the largest tire you should run on these wheels. Upgrade them to a 16x8 or wider and you could easily run a 285/75R16.

Just squeezed the trigger on some Nitto Terra's myself. Hope they work out first run on the Nitto brand.

There are no tire models that I am aware of produced in size 255/80-16. Tire size 255/85-16 will work but doesn't offer many choices and most models are on back order in this size.

Like we noted before, 285/75-16 will work but is best used on a wider wheel.

As far as tires go I would suggest either the Terra Grapplers, or the M/T ATZ's

They are by far the two best looking all-terrain tires with decent wear IMO. The ATZ's are more aggressive looking but are more money They both do great milage wise
