    Default 305/50/20 Tires fit without rubbing

    Call me anal but, I bought a used tire on e-bay for 30 bucks so I could check fitment before I spend $800 on tires that don't fit. 305/50/20 was what I figured would fit and I'm happy to see I was right,could go taller and narrower but absolutely no wider, haven't decided if I'm going to stay with this size or not, I might go with 275/65/20 but with the factory rim I don't think they will stick out far enough for me since I have the factory fender flares. Just thinking out loud! lol

    Well I think those fit the truck pretty well in the picture, I think you would be happier with the 305 but it's up to you. I love the wheels by the way, they look a lot like the American Racing Torque Thrust wheels.

    I hear you but, I think they'll rub and I don't want to cut, besides it's almost double the price for that extra inch!
