Hi! I don't know if I'm in the right place or not. Guess I'll find out. I have a 2005 chevy 3500 dully, Durmax, Allison, crewcab, LWB 4x4 LTZ , etc.It has LT235 85R 16 ms rated stock tires on it. They look like traineing wheels. I'm looking to replace them and would like to go with a bigger tire. Not "real" big, maby a couple sizes with a little better traction capeability. What is a good size and will I need spacers./ Also will spacers effect my load capisity/ I tow a 35' 5th wheel. Aprox 16,000lb. Hope someone can advise me.
Thanks Sonny

Welcome....You can go to a 285...Which is equal to a 33 inch tire or a 265 that is equal to a 31" tire I believe.

Spacers....Thats a good question. I'm not sure. The 285 will be a 10.50 wide tire. As long as you get the proper load range load capacity should not change

Anytime you drastically change tire height you will change your towing capacity as well. It changes the gearing.

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

I think I asked the question wrong.Would useing spacers downgrade the load/towing capisity of the truck? Also would these tire sizes be considered "drastic" changes?
Thanks , Sonny

Spacers will not hurt your towing capacity, Neither will go to a 285 tire. Its an inch to an inch and a half difference on the side. I would not worry about that

towing that heavy of a rig, i would make sure that spacers are rated for that kinda weight. and the tires need to be a E load range...for sure..

Do not go by loadrange itself. you need to check the tire weight rating.

examples:
245/70R17
Load Index 119 = 3074lbs (1397kg) per tire
Load Index 116 = 2806lbs ( 1275kg) per tire
Speed Rating Q = 99mph (160kph) 119/116Q
E

265/75R16
Load Index 123 = 3472lbs (1578kg) per tire
Load Index 120 = 3169lbs ( 1440kg) per tire
Speed Rating R = 106mph (170kph) 123/120R

Load Index 119 = 3074lbs ( 1397kg) per tire
Speed Rating R = 106mph (170kph) 122/119R
D
3305 lbs.
65 psi

The above is why, you need to check to weighted stamp on the tire, "E" does not mean the most load necessarily, it also depends on the tire size. some "D ratings out do some "E" ratings
