Default tire size

I have seen many posts about tire sizes but I still haven't been able to get an answer. I want to go with 32x11.5r15 tires with stock offset rims. I just need to know if it wont work. I have tightened my torsion bars a bit and I am not opposed to tightening a bit more. I am really deciding between 32's and 31's. any input or past experience would be amazing. thank you so much

Factory alloys and 32x11.5x15 with T-bars re-indexed.

yes, those are 32s and the truck did sit level. technically, it has a 2-1/2" lift on it but you can get that with re-indexing the T-bars and new shackles in the rear.

I am just trying to figure out if i need the rear lift? I would really like to mash some pinch welds and just slap them on there. do you think that'll work?

Do you need to re calibrate the speedometer afterwards?

I didn't recalibrate the speedo. the truck came with 235/75R15s so my speedo was off around 5-7 mph at 60 (slower). if your truck came with 31s it would be off less and 1 mph at 60.

I went from 31s to 33s, my speedo is off by about 5mph from 55-65. If you have factory mud flaps and go bigger than 31s at all you'll need to remove those, or just accept scrubbing on them all the time.

32s fit well on first gen x-terra steel wheels. the wheels were 15x7, I can't find the backspacing online but they work great, I just needed to adjust the steering stops. I could probably fit 33x10.5
