Need bigger Tires!

What size will fit my cab & chassis that is just taller, not wider? Stock is Lt235/80/17.

Thanks

There really isn't any thing else in a 17 inch rim that is taller and not wider for a dually. You may be able to do a 245/70R19.5 if you switch to 19.5 rims.

Where is a good place to look at these 19.5 rims? And what about switching to a 16" rim?

I don't think 16" will clear your brakes.

19.5's can be found at Rickson Wheel? Do a google search on 19.5 and they will come up they aren't cheap but direct bolt on and tires are much better than 17's. IMO

Good luck
