Default Truck newbie..therefore truck tire newbie ???'s

So I'm in the market for 4 new ones for my 2005 Daytona. Stock tires are 275/60/20.

Can i put something wider with lower profile than the stock 275/60's?

If yes...what are some limitations on this rim size? I don't want to do anything stupid and I assume the installer will remind me if I deviate from stock size.

No off-road needs for me so still looking for a solid all season highway tire here.

Thanks,
Dave

Default Options..

So I've narrowed my research down to these two..at least for now and would love to hear from owners of either tire...

General Grabber HTS All Season

and

Michelin LTX M/S2
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Model=LTX+M/S2

Price diff is about $250 in total so not concerned either way.

Are those the only 2 tires that you found appealing? I ask since I think you can find much better ones. If you want to get a highway (A/T) tire then look at these ones. BF Goodrich A/T KO, Toyo Open Country, Nitto Durra & Terra Grappler, Cooper Zeons. Those are really good tires but they might be a little more expensive....since they are much better.

You can go wider then the stock width. I have 305/55/20 BF G A/T KOs on my truck and they only rub when at full lock under load. So really that would be either in a parking lot or doing a 3 point turn. I lived with it since I barely have the tires at full lock. Honestly they dont even do it all the time.

Thus far yes..but I am open to your suggestions. Is there one tire in the list you provided that will be the best on the highway as far as comfort and noise but still give me what I need for the snow in CT?

Also..when you say your 305/55's rub..where exactly does this happen..just trying to visualize this....is it when you max out the wheel for a turn?

Dave
