Beating a dead horse (Tire Size)

Hey guys!

First off I know this has been discussed countless times but I wanted some more specific direction for my needs.

Right now I'm running 235/75/15's that came on my TJ.

I am in the market for an A/T (mostly wheel and drive through snow, ice, gravel, sand, dirt, light mud and light rock. It is also my DD.)

I've narrowed it down to BFG A/T or Toyo A/T ii.

I need new rims. Thinking of staying with 15 but maybe 16?

I just need help before I drive myself nuts in this department lol.

Hit the nail on the head ^

If you decide a rim then go pick your tire size from there. I run 16's and I will tell you that find the best tire size and availability kinda suck with 16's

Should have very little if you choose proper backspacing.
