No 285/75R16's are about 33x11x16.Boston Mangler said:That looks sharp
So, those are the 35x12.5x16 MTR Equivilant? Dont think i can swing 35's now (gearing cost) but it sure looks nice!
Thanks for the info NorCalDoug, i am set on MTR's of some size though, i have had them on 2 rigs already and swear by them! I guess i might have to be patient or settle for the 33 size. Curious, what gears are recommended for 35's? Any idea on the release date of the 35's?NorCalDoug said:Boston,
I'm currently the poster-child for what you're not supposed to do when installing 315s on an 80 series.
I haven't had much rubbing yet. I had a little at Death Valley and some at Moab -- nothing major though. I don't have flares, so maybe that helps a bit. I haven't done anything to the bumpstops yet -- which is why I think it's rubbing. I haven't taken the truck on the Rubicon yet with the 315s - I suspect if I'm going to have problems, it'll be on that trail. I got the 315s after last year's trip on the trail -- I blew out one of my 285 MTRs on the way home.
I'm not regeared yet either. I'm still running OEM 4.10. I'm slower off the start with the 315s as compared to with the 285s, but I get better fuel economy on the freeway (which counters the loss of fuel economy in city driving)...so I guess it's a wash in the end.
I was at America's Tire a couple weeks back getting my tires balanced and they told me that (at that time) there were 3 315 GY MTRs in CA. They've been on back order for a while...but not impossible to find.
Have you looked at the Firestone MTs? I don't know about their availability, but I recall that they were fairly priced and had some good reviews. They only went up to a 285/75 R16 last time I checked.
Was the whole interior removed and bedlined too? If so, i believe we were partying with you @ our camp @ the Surf and Turf, we were in a stock white FJ62.NorCalDoug said:Yes, that's mine. Pic was taken at Surf-n-Turf last year. The black is bedliner to cover the many holes I had after I removed the .
