help.

I went today to get a quote on some tires. I currently have 215 / 85 / 16 on it. I wanted to get 31" on it but the guy said they didn't have 31" for 16" rims. Does any one know what size I would need to be compatible to 31" tires. I know 215 aren't no 31" tires. Here's the tire size I would like 31 x 10.5 x 16.

99% of standard tire size run smaller than advertised. IE....31'' tire is typically 30.4 to 30.6'' tall.

A tire messuring 31.6'' would be classified a 32.

The height isn't as much of a problem as the width. If you're close to 10.5" width wise on a stock wheel you should be fine. If you have aftermarket wheels with less backspacing then no worries about being a tad over on the height unless you do serious flexing offroad.

What type terrain do you plan on wheeling the new tires in? Rocks? Dirt? Sand?

X2 The tire right for you is going to depend on what you use your vehicle for. daily driver, and type of ground covered when wheeling.

Well, then you'd probably be fine with the BFGoodrich Mud Terrain KM2 which is also an agressive looking tire. Overall, that's a very good all-around offroad tire that is pretty quiet on the street that also gets very good mileage (low wear).

Still curious what that "Yale on the trail" was all about.
