    I’ll def have to try that out. It is a bit stiff and bouncy when unloaded

    I had the fronts at 29 and they were good like that too. Still get 18 mpg like with stock tires. Front is still a bit harsh but you can only do so much to make up for the rigid sidewall. 29/27,30/28. Try different settings. 1 or 2 pounds makes a big difference in ride.

    Should just rename the thread to "what tires did you put on your truck?"

    For a 16" wheel? Isn't that only available on 285 and up. Definitely too heavy for what OP wants.

    Question, are these 16's or 17s

    So I have:
    P245/75R16 (stock, Sr 4x4 v6)

    I've read this entire thread. But I want to be sure I understand.

    Looks like a 265/70/16 will give me approximately the same diameter tire, but it will be a little bit wider. It will not rub.

    The 265/75/16 will add over an inch in height over the 70s...but this comes at a stiffer weight/ride penalty--right? Also, will it rub?

    Is the 265/70/16 the safest bet? I'm not really interested in a lift.

    Yes, especially for a 4 cylinder a 265/70R16 is ideal. the 75's will not rub but add a little extra weight and rotational diameter that will rob torque.

    I got the V6 baw. ;) But it's not exactly a torque monster to begin with so maybe I'll stick with the 70s anyway. Thanks for the response!

    I re-shoed mine today with Michelin Defender LTX M/S. I wanted the BFG Rugged Trail T/A but they quit making them.
    My main requirement was noise, the LTX's are quiet...90% of my driving is city. They ride as well or better than the BFG's and the ratings in consumer reports were my flavor. They weren't cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    I saw SR and assumed, I stuck with the 70's on my current rig and enjoy the power. But I do miss the aggressive look of the 75s

    Wrangler Ultraterrains got my vote. I’m biased tho. No road noise and great on/off road performance.

    I have the Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT in 285/70-17 and think they are great with my lift.

    Similar are the people who own a 2019 or 2020 claiming tire X to be the best. As if they have been through 4 different sets to this point.

    Just bought some Cooper discoverer rugged trek in stock size 265/70/16 for my 2.7 AC MT. Definitely louder than stock but not bad and I really like the look of them. Two different sidewalls so you can choose either mountain peaks or knife blades. I chose to keep the knife blade side out. 0DFE19EA-5C91-41BD-8972-B3DB69D3DD04.jpg

    Well, I have a 2019 and I’m on my third set. And I also am on my 5th 4 wheel drive. Just a little judgmental. You must be psychic and know everyone’s past
