I just bought a '04 2500HD that has 285-75-16 and I know that it came from the factory with 245-75-16. The truck looks great with the leveled look and that size tire, but it's not practical for towing (which is what I bought the truck for in the first place). I don't want to put the 245's on if I can keep from it, so I've been thinking about 265-75-16 so that I can lower the T-bars back down. My question is this...How do you think the truck will look & handle with that size tire? I know it's smaller than the 285's, but than it's not the skinny 245's that came on it from the factory! Also, how does changing the size tire effect the gearing and the transmission (as in what what RPM the transmission shifts with larger/smaller tires)??
