Hi,

I am going to move up from 245/75R16 to either 235/85R16 or 265/75R16 but I need some info please. I am looking to fit the following tyres:

BF Goodridge KM2
Coopers Discover STT PRO
Goodyear MTR

I am am sitting at 22' all round

Front I have 3/4 top plate OME 790 Coils and 2 clevis ring
Black I have OME 948 with 2 upper isolators and 3.5 bump stops (will go to 4)

So I should have enough space. I also run spacers 1.25 in on stock KJ aluminium rims (would love Moab but can't find them over here and shipping from US is a killer if the price isn't right).

I could do with some good photos of any to the above tyres to see how the fit and look from the side or the front (specially 235/85R16).

Thank you,

Fil.

I ran 235/85s HTs off the back of a dualie for awhile before i got my current tires, they were pizza cutterish, but the profile made it look higher than it actually was and had no fitment issues with the spacers

That was with the spacers, 790 coils a top plate and 3 conduit nuts in the clevis
And 3" coils and what not in the rear, roughly 22.75" hub to flare

I'm on that size of pizza cutters, but not in any of those tires. If you would like me to post a pic anyhow, just let me know.

On skinnies, you might rub in the rear wheel wells when stuffed, the front should be ok with your spacers.

In for pics! :)

Yes please do post up photos, as for the back I am looking to go taller in any case and add more bump stops to make sure no rubbing occurs in the wheel arches when I twist it hard.

I'm at three rear isos and I still rub the wheel well hard, especially on the passenger rear. Not so bad that it tears off the arch, but that might just be because my tires are not very aggressive.
