P stands for passenger car and LT is light truck
245 is the width of the tire in mm
70 means the sidewall height so its 70% of the 245mm so its 171.5mm tall
R16 is a 16" rim

What is y'all's opinion on flow masters? I'm looking into getting a complete kit, but what would the best one be? I'm looking for the aggressive sound.
You could just ditch the muffler that sounds pretty good imo

Never heard borla in person but from YouTube comparisons I think borla is better that's what I plan on getting eventually

Idk I love the sound of mine in the cab it doesn't ever get old to me

245 is width 70 is the height ( percentage of the width ) and obviously 16 is the wheel or rim whichever you want to call it

Anyone had any experience with Helo wheels? I've never heard of them but they look pretty nice.

So if I had a 20x9 rim, first off would it fit my truck perfectly fine without any rubs, and what size tire would I get that would fit it fine and still look good? I'm not putting offroad tires on it btw. But maybe something that would be roughly 30" tall maybe? Just trying to think of what I could do when I eventually get new tires and rims.

You should be able to fit 20's without issue. I personally think cooper Zeons are a sick tire for a street type truck wanting a low pro tire wanting a little extra beef
