Goodyear Wrangler MT/R

I found a set of 5 Wrangler MTR's 245/75/16 for my truck for $225 with around 75% tread left. I know they're not any bigger but have you guys heard anything bad about these? I've read reviews and heard a little bit of everything so if the price is right should I run with it?

Thanks

Yeah thats what I was thinking. Only thing is I'm considering trying to find a little bigger ones. Maybe 265/75/16's would look better? I don't have a lift, haven't cranked the t-bars and have the stock rims

Even though they're a little small I'd still pick em up! Hell turn around and sell em for more and use that money to go buy you some bigger ones. Haha

I'll see what I can do. Just waiting for the guy to send some pictures and if they're what he says then he's got himself a deal!

If I don't happen to get those I'll end up looking for a good deal on some Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac's 265/75/16 seeings how I want to go a little bigger to begin with. Those would work too and fit my stock rims correct?

This guy deals alot of used tires so he can get or has pretty much anything i might want in various sizes. I don't want to sound dumb by asking this but one question I have is that since 245/75/16 are my stock size, so whats a bigger size I can get that wouldn't rub or cause any issues that would still fit on my 16x7 stock rims?

265/75/16's will fit on my 16x7 wheels without rubbing correct? but that just means there wider. Anyway I can go taller and wider on 16x7 stock wheels?

They'll fit fine. You might rub a tiny bit, you might not rub at all.

haven't even got them yet. the guy said he was going to send pictures but he never did. I'll probably get them but I'm still kind of unsure if I want 265/75s instead of 245/75s

I'm pretty sure he still does but I'll give him a call after work and see about those pictures. He said the tread is 50% but when I found it there was claimed to be more. About how many miles ya think half the tread would last with proper balancing and rotating until I needed new ones?
