    Yes, it is a 1500, 2wd, reg cab, 8 ft bed (I've added that to my profile).

    I always lookup any particular product to see its specs., thanks for the input!

    While many people put much wider tires on "narrower than recommended" rims, I always try to stay within recommended specs. Why? One never knows (without specifically FIRST getting it in writing from their insurance company) how "modifications" will affect insurance claims (if/when something/anything goes awry, and an adjuster makes note of "vehicle modifications" which exceed any product manufacturer's specifications).

    Some additional notes, the brand tire which I used here was merely to lookup some specs:

    for example: tirerack.com indicates that the 255/70R16 Dueler H/L Alenza will fit on RIMS: 6.5" to 8.5"

    for example: tirerack.com indicates that the 265/70R16 Dueler H/L Alenza will fit on RIMS: 7.0" to 9.0"

    The above said:

    Thank you all for your help, I'll certainly be revisiting these forums on a regular basis. You all are awesome!
