read before you assume....tires/rim size help
i have been searchng for a while through the forums and i cant find the answer to this question:
Generally speaking, what is a better rim size for offroading? 15" or 16" ?
can a 15" rim be mounted on a KJ?
will it clear the front calipers?
will there be other clearance issues for turning radious?
Is there an advantage for 15" vs 16"?
I'm asking this because i want to get a wheel/tire combo for offroading and there are alot more tire options in the 15" range. Right now i have no plans for a lift but i may in a year or so.
my stock tire is 235/70/16, this equals to the inches sytem as a 29x9.5/16. but i cant find anyting close to 29x9.5 in a 16" rim. they do however have them in 15" rim. even if i stay with the metric tire sizes, the closest i can find is 225/75R16 (a more narrow tread) or 245/75R16 (taller and wider, will i have a clearance issue?).
comments? suggestions? oppinions?
