I am more interested in size tires people are running. 215-75-15 is what came standard from factory and optional tires were BIGGER. However Ford in all their wisdom tried to make a high revving sport car engine into an economy truck engine with the 2.8. Talk about stupid.... It LIKES high rpm and hates lugging. Thus 5th gear is worthless and performance slow in other gears. Fuel mileage sucks whatever I do. As I've said before, all the power of a 4cyl, all the fuel economy of a V8. To get a better effective gear ratio I'd like to use 195SR15s or 195-75-15s on it like I used on old Volvos but its a rare and expensive size. How would 205-65-15s be? For some reason these are fairly common. As to brand, thinking Yokohoma Aegis. They are relatively inexpensive but good rep for traction and treadlife. Dryrot already got my spare and one front tire forcing me to buy replacement spare locally to get home. Murphy's law was in full effect that day. Hey local cop gave me and my blown tire ride to tire store. Nice cop.
