I purchased the truck new and haven't changed the tires yet. I'm pretty confident that are original.

And you can go to the tire manufacture's site and it will give you the overall dia of the tire your looking at. Because the sizes between different manufactures varies a little.

Are they LT tires? Interested in this thread, hard to find LT tires the original 20 inch size.
Let us know if you get them and the brand... Might get the same ones.

Check the load rating on the new tires.

A taller sidewall MAY be slightly softer, but tire construction varies.

Micheline LTX AT2 comes in P and LT versions. Obviously do not buy the "P" tire, only the LT tire

According to michelin the tire your looking at has a overall dia of 34.4. And another good thing is lt tires have a deeper tread depth than p-metric.

Doesn't the LTX designation signify LT rated tires?

No. michelin always uses the ltx on all their light duty truck tires. Even on the p-metric. Just likes goodyear with wrangler or cooper with discoverer.

I should know this stuff. I live in a tire town. We have the Michelin light truck tire plant in my back yard. Employees get a tire discount, but us commoners get nothing off.
