Thread: Tire Size

    Default Tire Size

    Would anyone have an idea about what the tire specs are for this tire on this truck?

    Nitto Terra Grapps and I would say they are 265/70R17. Looks like a LS-stock truck with the air dam removed.

    Almost positive 16's will not fit on a NNBS. That truck is not leveled and hard pressed to fit a 285 tire without serious rubbing issues.
