The wheel size doesn't matter when you are talking about over all tire diameter. I have a brand new 255/75R17 (32.2) BFG M/T under there deflated. If you don't want to deflate it then you can only fit a 265 (31.6).

I was actually looking at the Authority that Walmart has on rollback right now. The LT tire is 170 and the E load rated is 200. But I really like the price on those Falkens.....decisions, decisions. And yes, I'm looking at AT not MT
Good point on the wheel size, I was just pointing out that I won't be changing rims or rim sizes. I really like the look of your rig when you had the OME on it, and I'm going to try and emulate its stance with my GC. You have a great build thread, lots of info in there!
