OK guy I am going to be getting a lift and tires here pretty soon. I keep trying to talk myself into getting 265/70/16s and saving the money on spacers lol. But then I see a picture of someones truck on 265/75/16s and it just looks so much better.

So my question to those of you with 265/75/16s or 17s is: How much did the bigger tire hinder your performance? Now I know these are not racecars; however, I do enjoy the power that I currently have. My truck has 3.42 gears and I do tow a trailer from time to time.

Thanks, Jacob

Do you have a tune yet? If not, do the tires and tune together and enjoy the best performance you're going to have without regearing.

Meh, it's not too noticeable on the butt dyno. Mpg wise I feel it. I tow a 3200lb boat and trailer, get a trans cooler... I only towed it once this fall to storage when it was low 40's and I didn't like my trans temps one bit. I have since ordered one.
