On a 99 they are a little bit higher then older gen Dakotas so with that being said I think if you don't lift it or mess with anything you should fit 235/75/15s underneath it.

Post tires

I had a 1997 Dakota Sport 4X4 that I bought new in '98.

The factory tire size on that truck was 31x10.5R15

Recently while looking for new tires, a store clerk told me to watch out for significant changes in tire sizes because the electronic metering can be affected by differences of changes + or - of 4%.

I was told to go to 1010tires.com and plug in the values to see if they work without changing the parameters. This will involve a dealer resetting the electronics. Failure to do so may cause the vehicle to go into a fail safe mode. I have not authenticated the advise but just say'n, be cautious.

The only thing affected by change of tire size, will be that the speedometer will be off a bit, which websites such as 1010Tires will show. There is no need to go to a dealer for anything, other than to reset the tire size parameter in the computer to correct the speedometer, only if you want to. Many of us who have changed tire size simply use a programmer, such as Superchips, to adjust the tire size parameter ourselves. Nothing is necessary to be done to the computer when changing tire size. Whoever told you that your truck will go into fail safe mode is truly clueless, and full of chit.

"I have not authenticated the advise but just say'n, be cautious."

Did you not see the last sentence? I dont go looking for an answer that agrees with my thoughts, I will collect and decide and I have not finished with my inquiries, its Christmas/New Years after all.
I am very much an older guy who find the new electronics a bit of an overkill, and that said, I dont know how or what data is being monitored. Just as much as I dont know your level of expertise.

I was just trying to let you, (and anyone else who reads this thread in the future), that there are tire techs that give out misinformation. And of course, that you can simply change tire size without worrying, as long as if fits without rubbing.

Point accepted. Research is the accumulation of data, its accuracy and relevance to the work involved

This is what I put on my 99 last time I replaced my tires. Seems like there is enough room to go bigger but I'm not sureby how much
