Hey QSilver7, thanks for your input. Info much appreciated. Would going to a 235/65r18 really give me more "cushion" or would I end up with just a narrower tire with about the same sidewall height? I would venture to say you can't get more sidewall height and keep within 3% on the same rims no matter what tire size you choose. The proper way I believe to accomplish this would be to step down to smaller 17" or even 16" rims with 65 series tires but I'm trying to avoid the extra cost involved.

I've read somewhere that the 3% rule applies to cars but trucks/SUVs can go up to 18%? Anyone hear something like this?

Curious if anyone out there is running 60 or 65 series tires on 18" rims and would care to comment on their experience.
