Does anyone know if 31-10.50-15s will fit on stock 1994 Dodge B-250 van ? It is the lighter duty 3/4 Ron , with 5 lug wheels.

Don't know about a Dodge. I have a G20 Shorty with those all around on 8" wheels.

Cool, I was thinking they might as the van currently has 30-9.50-15 tires in factory steel wheels, so 31 SHOULD not be much of a stretch.

several years ago I saw that body style, not sure the year, nott sure of rim width or offset, but 31x10.5x 15's all 4 corners.

The owner said the fronts rubbed the inner wheel well at full lock, but he got used to it not turning the wheel all the way when maneuvering.

Yeah, a tire guy was willing to do a test fit for me, and with minor trimming, the full lock rub is not bad.

Perhaps with a coil spring spacer and a little more ride height it will not be an issue at all.

When I replaced my 7270 diameter springs with thicker moog 7272 my ride height was restored, but not raised

30x9.5x15s make my Speedo dead on accurate, where the 235-75-15s it always read fast.

Yeah, I “tested” the speedo against one of those “Your speed is________” radar things, and with the 30x9.50x15s that are on the van now, it was spot on. I saw a van like mine, done street van style, and it got me thinking. . . .again! LOL Now I can not decide how to build her.

His van had 245/60/15s front and 275/60/15s on the rear all mounted on what looked like American Racing Outlaw 1 wheels and I thought it looked great.

Decisions decisions decisions . . .

Well, I am staying with the 30x9.5x15s for now, over the course of the year, I will start ordering my new wheels, and if all goes well, new tire size and wheels next year.

Bigger heavier taller tires do chew into MPG's, if that is a concern.

Then again the fast reading Speedo makes mpgs appear artificially high.
My phone's GPS agrees with those radar signs and my Speedo, with the 30x9.5's at both 30 and 65mph.

With the 31's our GMC is doing 60 or 61 and only reading about 55. Checked against the GPS.
The odometer is off by about 10%. 100 miles will read out at about 90 miles.

Went with a new set of 30x9.50x15s for now, speedo is spot on and it rides great. . . .now I just have to get some sound deadener to help get rid of the “interior of a gas can” sound it has while driving on a bumpy road. LOL

I know this thread is old, but is your van stock? I was thinking about doing the same thing with my 91 g20

245 are about the biggest for a stock chevy....

Re: Does anyone know? - September 17th 2018 7:17 pm

My van is stock as far a suspension goes, and I am using factory 15x7 steel wheels with 30-9.59-15 tires. Does that answer your question Kanon8 ?
