I am currently running 325/65/18's (35x13x18) on my truck. I really dont like the width of the 325's but I do like the height. Im going to need tires soon and need to decide on what to do soon. My other choice is 305/65/18 (34x12x18). I want to see trucks with 305/65/18's to see what they look like and if they will still give me enough meat in the wheel well. My truck is leveled so i would prefer pics of leveled trucks. I need to see this exact size, not sizes that are close.

How much harder it is on my steering and how much it killed my mileage mainly. I just feel like Im driving on skis. I like the way they look, dont get me wrong, but my dads 08 is set up just like mine and he runs 295/70/18 and they look just right. I like tall skinny tires. I would like to stay at a 35 or as close as possible but just go down to a narrower tire.

The height of the tire is what's killing your mileage. Not so much the width. Good luck. Hope you find the one's you want. I know the search is kind of hard sometimes. We've all got a certain look we want it to have.

the height WILL help if its driven on highway any length of time, the width in his case is adding resistance. my truck does better with a 35 than a 33, but it goes highway mainly

suggestion

Have you considered a 285 70 18? Toyo MT is avaialble in that size & it will maintain the 35" tire diameter but narrow your tire width considerably. Your steering will feel much lighter & your ball joints will love you for it.

I have looked at all different sizes. I won't go to toyos simply because I can not afford them. I really want to go with falken because of their 50k mile warranty.

Not really worried about taking them up on the warranty. If a tire company has enough guts to put a 50k mile warranty then they obviously believe in their tires and are not worried about having to warranty them out very often. That's a lot of miles to guarantee somebody that uses their truck and tires like we do.
