mud terrains generally have deeper tread, you may be able to go one size up from stock with little rubbing issues.

I would stick with 245/70-16's if you're going to get a MT since they run a bit larger generally then an AT or street tire.

Make sure to specify what type of tire you want - otherwise they'll probably stick you with some crappy generic MT tire which will suck in every situation.

x2 with the bigger/more aggressive tread of the m/t id go with the 245/70
