Which New Tires?
 
Looking at the bf Goodrich mud terrain tires I got stock 16" rubicon rims with 1.5" spacers which tire should I go with?

285/75r16
Or
305/70r16

Galagher 04-18-2013 01:26 PM

Actually thinking about 315/70r16

What's your rim width? I would think you would want an 8" width for either the 305's or the 315's.

I just bought a set of the wrangler mtr's, I'm not disappointed at all so far. Good luck.

Either will fit on your moabs. You have to decide which tire is best suited to your driving needs and axle setup.

Well axels are Dana 44s and its a rubicon so the better transmission and also I like to use around town and out on the trail.

I ran 285s on my old Rubicon and it did fine. I doubt you'll notice a substantial difference onroad between 285s and 305s.

Why are you running spacers with factory rims, clearance, looks?

That's why I ran spacers with my stock wheels. I'm not sure why anyone would run spacers with non-stock wheels.

You could argue more stability because of the wider stance :thumb:

Wrangler MTR, I have them and they preform very good!

Smythe86 04-18-2013 09:17 PM

I could have kept the stock rims. But I went with some pro comp alloys. 17". And pro comp all terrains. However I prefer the bfg ta ko
