As someone else pointed out, tires in that size are all load range E. They are designed for HD trucks, are very heavy, and will not return good mpgs.

Just whatever you do, dont get mud grapplers if you want to see over 15mpg

Thanks, I was just looking at tires on Tirerack and I know they dont carry Coopers. I just found another tire to research. Anyone run the AT3s?? How are they?

Dude... check the manufacturers' websites. I have yet to find a 235/85R16 that is not load range E (Coopers are no exception). There is a reason for this: they are made for duallies. You ain't getting 26mpg with E's.

Man, honestly. No matter what size you get, in the end grippy tires are gonna hurt your mpg. Not tryin to be a dick but if youre worried about MPG's then offroad tires arent for you. Theyre all gonna hurt your gas mileage. Majority of us with 4bangers and mudgrips are getting 15-18mpg on stock gears.

Problem with the skinny tires, that size in particular, is you need a heavier sidewall and the 255/85 mostly come in Mud Terrains

Well what do guys think is a good compromise between mpg and light to moderate off road use? In 235 or any other size? Thanks so much

I don't think you stand A chance to keep your MPGs with a 4 banger man. Not enough torque. You'll drop down like the rest of us. Especially if you look into M/Ts. I dropped 2-3 MPG city and 1-2 highway with my mud terrains and I have the V6. You're gonna drop even more without the torque to spin bigger tires.

I went with P265/75R16 Michelin LTX MS2 tires. I lost roughly 1/2mpg from what I can tell from the first 10 tanks.
I am not sure that the same tire in LT235/85R16 would have been much different since they are slightly narrower but slightly heavier.
The MS2 is not an aggressive tread pattern, so that helps a lot.

OP, IMO your best bet is P265/75R16 (standard load). My mileage stayed the same when I swapped to Hankook A/Ts in this size.
