On Route 66 in Bethany Oklahom...
Okay, first to remind everybody, I have a 1994 Dodge B-250 5 lug van with 30x9.50x15 tires on it, and they look stock. . . I want to go wider, keep a AT tread, and not rub in turns or dips.
So, my question is, does any one know, if I went with the coil springs from a 8 lug van, could I fit 31x10.50x15 tires on it then ?
I know the factory tire on a B-350 is a 245/75/16 (30.5” tire) and my factory size tire is a 235/75/15 (28.9” tire), so I think it would work, but I am not sure.
Also, what other parts might need to be changed to swap in the larger (?) Springs ?
Thanks in advance !

1991 Dodge B-250 (Junk Yard Dawg)
5.2 tbi V8, auto trans, and junk yard parts....

check out the cooper discoverer at3 and general grabber. they make some weird 15'' sizes.. check out www.tiresize.com . you cant buy from their site, but they have every tire in every size made by man on there, and the specs to go with em. the reason i didnt go with an all terrain t/a is because of the width. they only look good on shorty's. coopers again. second set. the last ones were 3 years old and tons of tread left. good tires and you get a white letter, and i gotta have that!
i put a combo on my van with no mods at all and OLD shocks! no rubs.
