Looking into new tires,whats good?

Im currently sitting on the factory bfg's 265/75r16 but i want something new. Im at about 65% tread so theyre still decent but i want something a little more beefy. I have a 2" lift spacer and wheel spacer and im currently rubbing the front splash guards,not too bad,just when i turn about 3/4 of the way,in any direction, but just for a quick second. Turned all the way im fine, its just that little bit. Im gonna remove the guards so shouldnt be a problem. Anyway,whats anyone/everyones opinion on biggest tire size and what brand do you guys like. I dont do any mudding,if anything,i do light to moderate off roading and want something that will keep me moving in some rough situations that also dont make too much noise on the road and dont jepordize mpg and axles and what not. Anything helps guys. Thanks in advance

It all depends on if he means spacers or adaptors. I've got Spidertrax 1.5" on my truck. They are hub and lug centric so there is no additional force on the lugs to center the wheels. Never had an issue.

I'm at 2" lift on front 1.5" rear and I've got stock rims and 265 tires. I too rub a bit on turning full bore. Honestly I have no idea how on earth anyone gets a 285 in there.

tire pages

new tires are always fun to consider. there is a page on the forum dedicated to tires with pros and cons for several types and sizes. check it out.

changing tread will change the road noise.

changing diameter will change all kinds of things.

you do have a money tree right?

Ive run hub centric adapters on other vehicles, if they are machined properly, maintained and checked periodically i see no issue with them.

I too am slowly starting to look for tires. Have about 15k miles on my second set of the stock BFG's the first set only lasted for ~40k.

I believe i have adapters which are also hub and lug centric made by Bora. Yeah i get a little rub at 3/4 turn but doesnt rub after or before that little point. And i asked about the 285 cuz the alignment guy said i might be able to get away with it so just thought id make sure

The spacers are why you are rubbing. If you did not have the spacers in there the 265/75r16 would fit perfect. The 285 will rub and require some plastic melting the clear. Way more melting if you have wheel spacers.
I would stick to 265s.

Yeah right now,with the stock tires,it rubs on the front splash guard which im gonna remove. Either way,ill probably just stay same size. Thanks.

So im gonna stick with same size tires but i still want something meaty and good with dry off roading that can handle the slight chance i were to ever come across some mud....suggestions?

First question is do you want AT's or MT's.

Next question is how much do you want to spend.

BFG all terrains are an age old classic.
Goodyear duratracs are a up and coming go to.
Toyo Open country AT or MT are popular mid priced
threadwrights are a budget prices alternative
General grabber AT- similar thread and performance as the BFG AT but cheaper
