Thats awesome. After the crank on the torsion did u need an alignment? Would i be better off getting 275's instead?Im thinking 265s would be to narrow.Oh ya i forgot to mention that these rims are -21 os

When I cranked mine up on my half ton I should have gotten an alignment. My tires were cupping pretty bad. It cant hurt to get one anyway...Just my opinion

You might have to do some minor trimming, but they should fit...
