    Arrow Size Matters

    I just asked my pal here the same question, he pointed me toward 4wheelparts.com, you can narrow it down by truck, then next to the tire size is the tire size calculator, it tells you what size you can put on for what amount of lift. It also tells you optimum gear ratio's to modify too. This site can give you a good Idea, but I would still triple check before buying online. If you have time I recommend going to a tire store that you would never buy from, act friendly and ask if you can compare the tire to the current one. It may be a little rude but they only want your money anyways.

    You can easily know the size of the tires if you contact authorised dealor...he will guide you in the right and proper way so that you don't face any problem in future..so it better to contact them...

    I have an 05' 2500HD and I have often wondered the same thing, what I am going to do is have them mount one 285/75/R16 and see if it rubs in the front or not. It looks close to me, but then again looks can be decieving.
