Most cost effective rim and tire size for your truck?
Back in 2000, 16 inch rims were standard and you can get tires that fit that rim for anywhere form $99-$250 new (normal use(road/highway). Most trucks skipped over 17 inch rims and moved into 18 and 20's stock.
I run 70k mile tires on my 16 inch rims with mainly road driving. If I want to upgrade from 16 inch rims to 17,18, 20, etc, what is the most cost/performance/mileage tires I can move to?
I don't want to raise the truck and I don't want to use tires that give less than 70k miles per set.
I think if I move to 18 inch rims, I can move to 285's and a slimmer side wall. (I am 2wd) and would need to raise the front end to get larger tires?

17's are your next most cost-effective size. However, I'd argue that if you don't want to raise the truck you should just stick with 16's.
