Default New wheels, now for tires.

I just ordered black 18" ultra goliath wheels for my silver 2006 2500 HD mega cab. I am putting in a 2" leveling kit and am going to put on some Toyo MT tires. I want a little larger than stock but am not looking for huge. I want the tires to look right and not to rub while turning. I am leaning towards 275-70-18. What are your thoughts?

Just a FYI, I am going to get the tires ASAP as I was stuck in the mountains yesterday with my terrible stock tires.

Sounds like some great wheels and you'd better give us photos when you can.

Those should fit just fine with your leveling kit on the truck.

I just looked online and noted that the recommended width for the rims that these tires will fit is too small. So I just called and changed my order to 285/70/18, this is now a 34.1'' X 11.4" tire. The recommended rim width for this tire is 7.5"-9.5". The rims I had ordered are 9". I am back in business. This is a little larger that I was planning but I think it will still be okay.
I will post pictures once they are on my truck.
