325/65-18 Tires with Minimal Lift
 
I bought some Cooper Discoverer STT Tek3 tires 325/65-18
mounted on MB TKO Wheels, 18x9 with a 25mm offset

Regular Cab, 5.0 STX. Stock height in the back. Daystar 1" Budget boost in the front. And yes, I had to trim to keep from rubbing

And here you can see how far the wheels stick out from the fenders

34.75 x 13.5

So effectively 35's

Yeah I like the wheels. They look good, sized right, and they have a lifetime structural warranty.

Weird. My picture links are broken and I can no longer edit that post.



Here is a link to the album where the pictures are from

That's sick! Is that a 2wd or 4wd truck?

4WD. And thanks

I should mention I kinda wish I went with 33's. With 35's I'm having some balance issues that the tire place cannot seem to fix. It's just too much distance from the wheel rim to the tire.

As far as MPG goes, I measure before and after. 1mpg loss, after accounting for how the bigger tire effects the odometer reading. 8.5%

I lose more MPG when I run the Air Conditioner in the winter.

You might want to check out some of the offroad sites for balancing options. In the past, I've run rubber pellets, and one time even golf balls inside my tires to balance my old bias swampers
