I remember people giving me advice on tires fitting. someone told me I needed a 3" lift to fit 285/70r17s on my truck. wow, was he wrong. I have an 05 1500 2wd NO LIFT OR LEVEL and I can fit TRUE 35/12.5r20s without rubbing one bit(even at full turn.) I find this pretty cool b/c i hear of people on their fords and chevys having to get lifts just to fit the 33"s. ;]

Cooper Zeon LTZs (stock size) I like them a lot, they're a great all-around tire. I'll probably go with the Terra Grapplers next time, since I'm getting new rims, and the Terra Grapplers have a wide variety of sizes.

Dude don't get the Terras. They're overpriced. I paid 230 a piece and they weren't worth it at all. They look like street tires, so you don't have that aggressive look. They don't hook up in sand at all. And they dont wear very well. I would suggest the Kumho Road Venture MTS. Thats my next tire.

Wow, thanks for the info man, I appreciate it. I just did a Google search on those tires, and I'll be honest, they're tread pattern is sick! I'm not upgrading right at this moment, so I have time... but thanks again man :smileup:

Sharp....totally Sharp! Great job. Glad you went out on a limb and gave it a whirl YOUR way before believing EVERYTHING you hear. Please don't let one person discredit others. I am sorry you were told otherwise. But in the end.....YOUR WAY ROCKS!

I had the same size BFG All Terrains on my 04 2wd with no lift and never had any problems either. I don't think it was even close enough to rubbing to consider needing to lift it.

Yeah those Kumhos are nice. They are pretty cheap on TireRack.com That's where I'm gonna order mine from. I'm torn between those and some Mud Grapplers. They are also VERY cheap on www.rimsntires.com I suggest everyone look at that site. Its so cheap compared to most sites
