Re: Online tire stores for cars/trucks

ive done alot of research before dropping my load on performance tires for my Saab and Tirerack.com (which you already know about) gave me by far the best deal around !

I don't kill flies but I like to mess with their minds. I hold them above globes. They freak out and yell, 'Whoa, I'm way too high!'

Tirerack is the place to go I've dealt with them several times and the service and prices were great.

Re: Online tire stores for cars/trucks

my deal with tirerack is the selection. Do they not carry many brands or just a few? Or is my 17" tire a bit of an oddball and I gotta get what I can get??

Re: Online tire stores for cars/trucks

Another big thumbs up for the Tire Rack. I've been getting tires from them for... over a decade, I think. Started back when I was in Germany. Even then the service was excellent.

Luke (ext. 362) is a great guy to deal with.

I'd say it's an oddball size (not the 17", but the width and profile). You can choose different sizes to work within your rims' specs, say, +/- 10mm in width, +/- 10mm in profile.

So with a 265/65, I could go 275/60 or a 280/60? I just don't wanna screw up my speedo.

Actually it looks like a 285/60 is closer to what I need to maintain the same height.

Something along those lines. You can look at very detailed tire specs on tirerack.com, and see exactly how many turns/mile each tire makes. So, let's say yours makes 750 turns in one mile, all you have to do to be dead-on (not really that necessary if you're only a % or so off) is to find a tire with 750 (725-775 should be fine, really), that'll still fit on your rim.

Most anyone at Tire Rack, Luke included, will be able to help you choose a proven, legal (they can not suggest a tire out of your rim's specs) tire for your truck. You should be able to do the same online as well.

Hmm, not sure about a 285. See, that's nearly an inch wider (20mm to be exact) than your stock 265 tire, and may be too wide to seat safely on your rim.
