Deciding on Wheel & Tire Size

Bigger isn’t always better, but if bigger wheels is what you desire, here are some tips. Larger rims look great, but they can impact your ride quality and will be more expensive than smaller rims. However, wider wheels can use wider tires, which offer your truck greater traction. This is important if you use your vehicle for off-roading or other extreme driving conditions. To determine what size tires you would need with your bigger wheels, use a tire size calculator. We are happy to walk you through this process and get the sizes for you.

You should consider the maximum-sized tire when making your selection. Sometimes by just going one inch smaller on the rim diameter, you get twice as many options.
