    285/75-16's... May require some trimming depending on the backspacing of the wheel you use and the tire you choose. Also it sounds like you want an A/T tire.

    Are you getting aftermarket wheels or trying to use the OEM wheels?

    with the bigger tires your boat pulling power will be affected are you even concerned about that. it might not matter if it is like a fairly light flats boat but the heavy hunks of glass you might just want to stick with the same size?

    well the bigger tires are just going to suck more gas...maybe get the same size tire but an aggrassive looking one?

    You can regear if you are really having trouble towing the boat. But everything costs $$$.
