having some tires offered to me for free... BUT

they're 235/75/16.

how would those be compared to my stock 255/70's?

skinnier yes. but any taller?

the only plus to these tires, is that they are an A/T. compared to the stock wranglers that come on rangers.

idk whether i should do it or not.
they have a lot of good tread left on them too.

Thats not too shabby of a deal....go for it!

Not that it has any relation to my thread, but I got all 4 31" BFG A/T's with the 15" black steelies that were on a '94 Jeep YJ with about 22,000 on the tires, for $180. Already put 4,000 on the tires w/ the Mazda. AND, I still have SIGNIFICANT tread-life left.

my dad used to have em in 35's on his sierra, and they seemed to do pretty good..

idk, its a cheap A/T, with good tread left. i think they go for like 150 a piece new. so 350 for 5 tires (theres a spare as well) is pretty good i think.
