Tire and Wheel help

Hey all,

So I am going to have to get some new rubber soon. I'm gonna go with 265/75R16. I was looking at the BFG A/T's or the general grabber. My problem is I can't find a set of wheels from pro-comp with the right lug pattern (I think its 5 on 4.5?) that has a 16" diameter.

Another thing I can do is go down to a 15" rim and get a 265/75R15 tire, but then I cant get the BFG A/T's.

Anyone have any recommendations for me here?

Thanks,
Frank

drop to a 15" and grab some 31x10.50R15's, or 32x11.50r15's

as for bfg vs grabber, unless your going for the red labels, get the bfg AT's. i have 33x10.50R15's and love them. 2wd will take me anywhere i wanna go.

What about the Goodyear DuraTrac's, are those any good?

I'll be going with the 31x10.5's, but now my issue is finding a wheel I like. I found these at pro-comp. What do you guys think? Both of these have the 15" or 16" rim size and have the 5 on 4.5 pattern.

a lot of people on here love their duratracs and so far nobody has complained about them. same goes with the BFG AT and the grabber AT2's.

I'd definitely drop down to a 15" wheel. if you ever decide to lift it, you'll have more choices when it comes to a 33 or larger.

I will go down to the 15" rim, it's a bit cheaper for the wheel and tires.

Thanks for the info.
