Yes 10.5s and thanks. I went with the slimmer tire to have a little less rubber on the ground. Keeps my mpg's around 16-18, same as with 31x10.5.

My plan is to get to a 33x10.50 eventually. I like the look & the benefits

Because I am indecisive I've changed tire sizes again. 35" MTR's and riddler diff covers.
