Default Replacing factory p235/75r17 factory rubber

Since the factory tires on my pickup are getting a bit worn (7/32"), I'm trying to decide what course of action to take. However, it appears that the size of tire that Ford put on my pickup (P235/75R17) wasn't embraced by many tire manufacturers, and I don't care for the Hankook DynaPro's that are on it. My current thought is going up to LT235/80R17 and getting a set of Michelin LTX M/S2's. Have any of y'all ever run this size tire? If so, how much trouble was it to get the speedometer recalibrated?
Many thanks in advance.

Unless you tow a lot, I would stay away from LT tires. They are very heavy (killing your gas mileage) and and will ride much harsher.

I would go with a P265/70R17. It's a stock size that ford will be able to calibrate your speedo to, but it's only .8" taller.
