I currently have 305/35/24 on my truck. Can I go with a 40 series tire and decrease the width of the tire, like go down to a 295/40/24??? Thanks in advance fellas.

Toyo makes a 285-40-24 that will work on your truck. We did this tire on a 04 escalade with a 2/3 for a customer and had no problems.

FYI, I personally like the way a 315-35-24 looks. That what I try to steer most customers towards. Cooper, nitto, pirelli and general make this size.

40 is too much. Mine as well drop down to 22 inches.
When I get 26 inches strong, i'll be rollin 315/30/26. Looks clean!!

Which one do you recommend out of the companies who make 315/35/24's? I was looking at pirellis but the cooper's are intresting. I am looking for the best ride possible.

Hankook has the best ride. I prefer Kumho or BFG. BFG's are real beefy for a low profile from the side. And Kumhos are super clean. I have only rolled on those two tires, but Hankook has the best ride ive heard a lot.

In 315-35-24 the nittos look bulky and I haven't had any experience with the generals. I have heard good things from the customers I have sold Coopers too. They are reasonably priced, ride well and look aggresive. Pirellis are another option, but I think they are over priced and I personally don't like they way they are built. If you want a good ride, I think you would be fine with Coopers or Pirellis.

Just checked with distributor and they have some Nankang 295-40-24s for $1335+ freight. Never used a SUV Nankang tire, but that is a smoking price on 24" tires.
