Help with tire and wheel size selection... 35" toyo mt

Currently I have 35x12.5x15 bfg a/t on some crap rims.

I want to go the the toyo open country mt 35's.

Deciding on the width of tire either 12.5 or 13.5 as well as rim size... 15, 16, or 17.

I would like to also get new rims and ones with beadlocks... Not the simulated kinds.

What would you guys recommend for both the tire size and rims.

FYI, I have a 4" suspension lift plus a 3" body lift.

Go with a 15''x8'' rim. Back spacing around 4''. I don't like wide tires so 12.5'' is adequate. Not sure about bead lock rims...never had any use for them

How do you use your rig? What gears, rear axle, and lockers?

x2 on 15x8 wheel and 12.5 width on the tire.

Just curious why you are sold on the Toyos. I am not sure if you are aware that they are very heavy compared to many others.

I ran through two sets of Toyo 33x12.5x15 MT tires on my Jeep for years. When I replaced them for 35" tires, I could not believe that my 35's were lighter than the 33" Toyos. A little less weight at each wheel made quite a difference in braking performance also.

I did not know they were heavier. I had just read on here that they were better tires... What did you end up getting?

Is the mickey Thompson baja mtz's better?

Currently on 35x12.5x15 Procomp Xtreme MT's. For me, they are just OK. I am not happy with their performance in deep deep snow. Which I run a lot of. Not sure what my next tire will be yet.

Have a buddy in my club that has the MTZ's on his MJ. He seems to like them. He has driven right past me in deep snow with those tires after I became stuck.
