I'd love to know what you went to and see pictures if you got em.

I think I read that I can comfortably go to 255/75/16.

Not planning on a lift or anything, just to improve the tires.

Thanks

U ca all u need to rember is you runnig a thiner rim so you will gt that ballon look on your tire. FYI I fit a 285/70/17 under mine and have no clearance issues. Jeep rims can be found pretty cheaply if you want to avoid that ballon
