Which tire and Which size?

hey guys I'm going to be needing new tire soon so am deciding on which ones to get and which size to get. I'm looking at BFG A/T KO or Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. Right now I have a 1"BL, belltech 6400 shackles in the rear, and coil-over conversion soon to come! I'm debating on 33"s or 32" I want a lot of flex and no rubbing. Also what tire width should i get?
Thanks

I think 31's.. 32's might be your best bet. and I'm pretty sure those tires come in 12.50.. so yeah get that.

The duratrac is gonna perform better in the mud, cause it's not necessarily a "A/t"

I would get 32x11.50

I think 33x12.50 would rub alot.

What size is your rim?

I am pretty sure that BFG's A/T's come in 32x11.50

Then you would get either 265/75/16, 275/75/16, or 285/75/16

Try this... Tire size calculator

Well, the two most common sizes that are going to have the most choices are the 265's and the 285's.

With what your specs are and what you are wanting I would get 265's.
