Re: Tire size???

depends on how WIDE it is, if its 7 inches then a 235 is about it, if its 8 inches a 255 is about it (maybe 265) and if its a 9 wide 275 is the right fit (285 will work though)

keep in mind tire manuf all run differently in their width so some are more narrow so you can run a "wider numbered tire" but it wont actually be wider than some smaller numbered tires.
