    I would think that a 265/65/17 would fit without a lift, but you might want to do a test fit first.

    My Buddy at Discount tire says the largest tire that he says would fit would be 275/60r17. This would be similar to the tire Chris mentioned above.

    275/60r17 = 30x11x17
    265/65r17 = 30.5x10.5x17

    There is always the sawzall. I have always found discount tire to give a better price on tire and wheel packages than even over what I can find online, and that is before I tell them what I have found the deal for elsewhere. You might call them with the tire and wheel that you want and see what price they give you installed without warranty. Remember free tire wheel rotation and balance for the life of their tires.

    That looks very good. I love the hankook mts. They are all I will run on my trucks. Never had any problems and I'm on my 5th set. I tried one set of ATs and they had a high pitched wine on concrete that I didn't like so I went back to the MTs.
