    The main thing i've heard from people that run a wide tire on a stock wheel is the tire will tend to buldge out a little on the sides and the truck will walk bad at higher speeds

    very nice. will be nice to see them installed. the biggest thing will be proper air pressure (and not the pressure on the side of the sidewall as that is a max cold psi for full load capacity) or whats on the door panel. there is a pretty easy way to test proper air pressure if you want and then from their you kinda adjust on feel and function.

    first what is the max cold psi. I know with my 35's it is 50 with a D rated tire. I know some of the duratracs come in E so those are a little different. Either way start with the tire so that it has not been driven for a few hours (as you drive the psi goes up and will give an innacurate initial pressure). I would say with the 1500 start somewhere in the 35-40 psi range (I run 44 on mine but I am a little heavier, I could run the rears a little lower since it is typically empty but its not a big difference. when I tow I fill the rears to the 50 psi max and leave the fronts at 44.). take some chalk and make about a 1-2" wide line across the tread. drive down the street 1/4 mile or so, you shouldnt need to go far and see where the chalk is left on the tread. if the chalk is off the inside and outside edge the tire is underinflated. if the chalk is off the middle and still on the edges it is over inflated. With mine I find I like it best with about 1/2" or so of chalk left on the inside and outside edge. after you check you can make an adjustment. Leave about 10 min in between or if your close make a couple runs. Once you get it to where it wears even there is a range where the wear will be the same within a few pounds and you can adjust according to ride comfort after typical driving and what you prefer. Just remember after you drive the psi will read higher due to the heat so the most accurate is after sitting a few hours if you have been driving. I try to do most of my monthly air checks in the morning before I leave or if the vehicle hasnt been driven in a while. More air will make the tires firmer, less will give a little softer ride within a little bit just depends on how much you notice those things. with mine I have a packed gravel driveway so it works opposite. as I go down the driveway I will pick up dust and look at where it is. so on mine I have just a little bear on the outside and inside edge which seems to work the best for me, since I am also running on a little skinnier rim (8" like you). Its a little bit of a fill and test process but doesnt take too long if your starting point is close. Once you get to that pressure that works for your vehicle its just filling it to that psi when you do occasional checks and filling them up when you load. The scientific way is individual tire scales math and other things wich most of us dont have access or time to do
