255/85 R16 TJ Pictures.

Anyone have pictures of their TJ (or any other Jeep I guess) running 255/85R16's. I don't care what brand they are, I just wanted to get an idea of how skinny they look at that size.

Thanks!

Thanks, they look great. I was worried they would look too skinny, but I like them. Keep 'em coming if anyone else has some pictures. I like the thinner tire better than the wider M/T's.

My biggest regret with my Jeep is going with 33x12.5x15 instead of 255/85R16's... Some great looking Jeeps in here for sure.

updating this since I wish I had seen some more pics of jeeps with this tire size!

new toyo m55's

have been hard to balance (requiring a good amount of weight), but I like them over the 285/75 toyo open country MT's they replaced... more compliance even though they have the same number of plys (10, load range E). Probably the one of the most expensive tires out there unfortunately... Also removed the 1.25" spidertrax spacers I was running to get more of that "stock" look I really like. I dont "wheel" the jeep on the harder stuff since it's my daily driver and only vehicle, so figured some commerical traction tires would be right up my alley. Have had 245/75/16 BFG commercial traction tires in the past and was very very impressed by their performance, so hopefully these perform similarly.

Will be giving these a thorough shakedown on trips back and forth between Oregon and Colorado over the next few years... Many off road miles in the summer and many winter miles during the winters!

255/85/16 KM2s on Moabs. No wheel spacers, I think it's too narrow.
