235/85/16

cheap, available everywhere, lots to choose from, light, as tall as 265/75/16, lower rolling resistance, lower air resistance

save on gas and get something that looks agressive

OP I am in a similar situation and have been researching this a bit. To me the 265's look to small and the 255's too narrow, trying to find that happy medium.

Hopefully somebody can chime in and help ya figure it out!
They do no make a 275/75/16. Wish they did but they dont

"235" and "aggressive" shouldn't ever be in the same sentence

Yes. Even on a three inch lift you need cab mount chop and trimming.

Now keep in mind that the Duratracs are made of a softer rubber and won't wear as long as some other A/Ts such as the BFG. Make sure you rotate them religiously or you'll start to cup.

Yes thanks. Can anyone help me with the wheels. For the dick cepek they have one 18x8 on 6.5.5 And 4 inch back spacing and -12 offset. Would that work fine on the duratracs? And fit the caliper

Yes I'll rotate them every 3k. I drive alot highway. I don't want them to wear out like at 20 or 25 k lol. Should I get a good 35 to 40k? That should last me 2 years lol

you'll be lucky to get 30k bud...now the higher the ply, (8 = D and 10 = E) the longer they should last. But that also makes them heavier = worse MPGs (not by much/if any...just had to put it out there)

thanks for the infor dude. It sucks. 30 k out of them is bad lol. They will last me maybe 1 year and a half lol. Is there any other tire in a 265/75/16 that's alittle more aggressive then but not an mt. My general grabbers at2 are nice but would like to see more aggressive pattern but not too much. It all sucks cause I drive a lot. Do 22k a year. I want a tire that's some what aggressive but last awhile but that's not going to happen lol

Dude honestly in that size I would get BFG A/Ts...they cost about the same as the Duratracs and they will last longer....it's the most proven A/T tire on the market man and has been for YEARS....you can't go wrong with the 40k tread warranty
