2'' lift with my tires :)

got my XD monsters today with 265/60/18s tape measured at 30.3ish''

and my stock 245/65/17 that are worn down measured at 28.6'' ish .



I also have the cooper AT3 on there but they are not as aggressive looking as I expected them to be, I did want to have tires look a little more aggressive but oh well these do suppose to be quiet on the highway

Re: 2'' lift with my tires :)

I'm not a fan of the XD rims and you should've gone with General Grabber AT2's if you wanted a more aggressive looking tread with no road noise. I got my AT2s for around $183/each, mounted and balanced.

Those are sharp and will probably look really good on your truck.

Re: 2'' lift with my tires :)

Are those pics deceiving or are those really deep lugs? What's the tread depth on those Gouranga?

The OEM LTX M/S are 11/32 new, for comparision.

Re: 2'' lift with my tires :)

You do realize that you only lifted your truck 0.85", right?

(30.3-28.6)/2 = 0.85 The other 0.85" is above the axle and taking up space in your wheel well.
