    Yeah. Ive done a lot of reading and have decided that the taller skinnier tire is best for me since i dont see much deep mud and snow over 2 feet.

    They rubbed at first but my suspension was sagging. After I upgraded, with no lift, just leveled, I don't have any rubbing.

    I'll post some pics later.

    So back to the point, what is the problem with E rated tires? And im getting a 2.7 taco so im more concerned with mileage (current car is a 07 civic 39mpg), will this size be a good balance between off road and on road milage?

    So is 235 85 a good size for skinny tires? I love the skinny look and apparently according to the Expeditions West article they are better for off road grip.
