P265/75 R15 = Odd tire size??

I've been looking around for new tires to replace the Generals that came with the truck. (I hear bad things and don't really care for the look of them)

I'd REALLY like to get a set of BF Goodrich All Terrains, but if I do a search on their site with the P265/75 R15, it comes back as not having a tire size to fit my truck.

Do I have to go out and get a new set of wheels too?

31 x 10.50 is your alternate tire size for the 15"s on our truck.

Yeah, what he said. Several of us have already swapped tires over, for reasons that are obvious.

I don't know much about the difference in tire sizes....

Is that bigger or smaller than the P265/75 R15, or roughly the same size?

It's almost exactly the same...it's just the Imperial equivalent.

I have Bridgestone Dueler A/T's on mine in the stock P265/75R15 size.

Nice tires.. has anyone heard anything good about the Firestone Destination M/T? I know for our tire size they run about 153 a piece but a buddy of mine who is a manager at a Firestone dealership here is going to sell me them for 100 a piece. Sounds good to be true, but dont want to buy something I cant take back.. if you know what I mean.

Max, when you say "almost exactly" are they a little bigger or smaller? wider on not as wide? Just wondering if they would fit on my truck with my wheels. I had to adjust my torsion bars and trim my front mud guards to get the stocks to fit. Thanks.

Maybe I recall you put some American wheels on your truck? If so I'd guess the aftermarket wheels are a different width and or backspacing and cause the mods to be needed... From brand to brand the real world tire sizes vary by as much as a few 1/10ths (height and width) from the advertised size on the tire. 31x10.5x15 BFG Rugged Trail T/A's are 30.7" tall x 10.7" section width. General AmeriTrac TR's are also 30.7" tall but have a 10.5" section width.

Look up any tire size and when you have a list of brands use the spec's link to see a chart of sizes for that brand. Check several brands and you'll see what I mean...
