Mine are 325/65/18 which come out to 34.64, I just used that example up top because I know they make both those sizes (if i did my math right). I call 315's 35's all the time.

315 refers to the width of the tire, has zero to do with the height.

It means the section width of the tire is 315mm wide.

The aspect ratio (65, 70, 75) means the sidewall is that % of the width.

So, a 315/70r18 is 315mm wide 70% of 315 wide, twice, + an 18 inch rim.

You can do the conversion and the math yourself, it's too early for me to do it.

Not even close to what I was thinking. On every TOW rig I have had I run Steeltex tires, they have great weight ratings, great traction(unlike Open Country's), and they wear very well. I never said anything about Boggers...now go back to pickin on Howell Jeep.

Yup still alive and kicking. We were trying to break my record of 6700lbs in the back but only scaled out at 4400. Will be selling it soon. I got a 95 thats almost identical to it but it has like 80k less miles, cruise, and new tires.

Nope.

2500 W/T with a 6.0L, $34,189.78 OTD. I'd have to put about 200,000 miles on the thing to break even with a Dmax - and that doesn't count DEF and the higher maintenance.

Plus, I got about $7500 in discounts...

I've been researching this purchase for about 18 months.

Realistically how long do you plan on keeping it?
How does resale value fit in there?

It would almost have to be him, who the hell would want to drive around in a 40 ft long truck.

Resale does not fit it - I usually drive things into the ground. We bought this truck to work - haul wood, the camper, etc. - It might get 3 to 7k miles per year on it.

Going to be tough, it drives awesome.
