i can't decide.

i really want the 32x11.5x15's. stock gears of course and a daily driver.

but the 31x10.5x15 would match the performance i have put into the truck. it has enough to push the 31's on the highway.

but 32's would be more fun off road. i also just found an 85 automatic truck in the junkyard, i think they have 4.37 gears. i could get those and go with the 32's and still be pretty happy.

i found my chevy springs so i'll do my lift during the winter in welding class.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't get either size tire till your lift is done. Get your tires after the lift. Then don't get anything smaller than 33s. Trust me, I've bought too many tires then had to sell them. Oh yeah, all 8 wheels hafta go too because they're BS'd way too deep for my SAS.

Ditto. If you're gonna lift it this winter, just hold on and get them then...if you desperately need tires right now, go see if you can find some cheap used 31's or something. But don't spend money on new tires till after the lift! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I ran 32" BFG ats for 45k. They will fit with no lift ( on the street) and they don't look so <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> when you lift it to fit your 35" boggers on!

If only one set of tires is in the near future, try to do the lift first and then get 33s. I agree with the minimum happiness standard is 33, for wheeling.

32's definitely

If you are stuck on getting either the 31's or the 32's, get the 32's. They are a big little tire, and fit well with just a little rubbing (not too much, only under front flex).
