Put some 38" tires on my truck...

Put some 38x15.50x20 tires on my truck....







And it looks mean as hell! Those wide tires are really intimidating.

What kind of MPG do you get with that truck by the way? Does it run 87 or 93?

D2! It's nicknamed "The DurrtyMax"!


I saw 22MPG @ 70mph freeway cruise unloaded with my old 35s...


Loaded down with ~8k lbs, I was getting 18 freeway cruise @60mph with my 35s...


Which ain't too shabby considering the size.

None of them make much sense and all can be considered ridiculous when fuel is $4.00............so, if you're going to be ridiculous, you might as well get the largest tires that you can find.

Personally, I don't understand what the attraction might be.............if you want the height, just buy a 10 wheel tractor and drive it around without the trailer. Probably get about the same fuel economy..........maybe 10 mpg.

2006 GMC Sierra Owner's Manual Addendum:

"To enter vehicle, first open door closest to desired seating location, then walk back approximately 12 - 15 feet (3.6 - 4.7 meters), turn around, then run towards the door opening with everything that you have..."

What is the max allowable bumper/headlight height in Cali?

No bumper height regs. Head lights no more than 54" and no less than 22". This is measured from the filament.
