skinny tall tires

Hello i have a 75 cj5 with fiberglass body i just bought back after 9 years (long story) but i think i want to pull off the 33x12.50 and go old school, im looking to put on some skinny taller tires. Any thoughts on this?? any recomdations for tire brands and sizing. with these short wheel bases it seems the wider tires get squirlly on the pavement.

BFG still claims to make thier A/T in 33x9.5-15 but i have not been able to find a set in 2 yrs. I switched to 255x85/16 BFG MT. Toyo, Eldorado/Larime and Cooper also offer tires in this size.

Interco makes their LTB's in a 34X10.5 and they make a Narrow SSR in a 34X9.5 and some other of their tires come in skinny sizes also

235•85-16? Tall and skinny as they get. Unless you go taller, but then it gets wider also..

tire-size-conversion

tire-size-conversion.comhas a massive list of tire sizes for different wheels and a calculator to covert an inch size to metric so you can try different sizes out to see what they convert to.
they have a speedometer calculator to tell you how fast your really going if you run a bigger tire too.

BFG has stopped making the 33x9.5x15. They cancelled my May 2012 back order today.

that's what I was going to suggest However, I think they are bias ply, not so sure how that would be for a daily driver?
