Another which tire thread

I give up....after searching and reading for 2 days straight, I still cannot decide what is best for my 1996 4.0 with 3.73 gears.. I just got 245/75/16 that are Firestone Destination AT's and have a OME+spacer lift (about 2.5-2.75) and the tires just seem to look small. (They measure about 30.1 inches tall after being mounted)
Will 265/75/16 AT's be too big for this lift? (about 31.4 after being mounted) I am on the paved road 95% of the time going off road during the hunting seasons..(but it is really rough here in southern Arizona). I have a few days to decide if I like the 245's, what should/can I do?


It only hurts while you're breathing..

31's have and will always fit on a BB, I would try some BFG A/T's. I also like the procomp extreme mud terrains.

I went with the BF Goodrich A/Ts 31 x10.5x 15 . I went thru the same thing. I would recomend the BF Goodrich over the Destination AT's .They are a little more $ ,but there better in the rain,wear better and wont get loud after 10K miles.IMO
