I was thinking about goodyear DuraTracs. Let me know wha you guys are running.
I'm running 32 inch Duratracs (265/75/16). Love them!
As far as the largest tire you can get, that will likely depend on your lift/clearance. Metric goes up to 325/75/16 (35 inch). You can buy 35x12.50x16 inch tires instead of metrics as well, but the width is a little bit wider. You can get much larger than this, but how high do you really want to go? Getting larger than 35's and you start talking about cutting fenders, increasing the short arm to long arm, etc......
If you are upgrading from stock, don't forget to consider modifying your differential gears as well as your speedo. I upgraded from 3.07 gears to 4.10 when I went to my 32 inch tires. This also depends on which tranny you have (I have a NV3550, 5spd manual).
Hope this helps!
