I have bought 19.5 rims and I am looking for tires for every day driving. I am trying to stay with all six tires same tread pattern. I like the 225 because they are close to factory. Thank you

Not real sure. I bought 19.5 rim from a friend that had them and sold his truck. They are new in the box. I do kwow that these will fit with no mods, but there are many different makes.

Michelin XZE is a great daily driving tire made in a 225/70/19.5 in F and G ply ratings and 245/70/19.5 in H and F ply ratings. They ride and wear great with long tread life.

Mine are all Hankook 245/70/19.5 same tread all 6 tires. I will get some pics tomorrow if I have if I have time. Mine rims were a direct bolt on and I had to do no mods to get them to fit.

I have a set of chrome Driv 19.5 direct bolt on with bridgestone tires that I will sell. PM me if interested. I am trading my truck in on a 450 ford and I am not giving them the wheels and tires.

That sure looks nice, I am on the edge right now trying to decide to get 19.5's or just replace with stock size. I use my truck to tow my 36 gooseneck race trailer only, and I usually cover at least 1,000 miles every trip. Just don't want any issues while on the road. I went to oversize wheels and tires on my SRW 2500 and regretted it. Any advice anyone??

Dash- you will probably have the exact same issues on this truck I think. When I had the 19.5's on a 2500 D/A, braking was harder. stopping distance seemed longer, probably because of the extra rotational weight. Acceleration seemed harder, probably due to the effect of having a numericly higher axle ratio. I think they even negativly affected my economy. Perhaps it's just me but those things sure seemed real to the seat of my pants! On the up side- I certianly never worried about overloaded tire problems!
