    Hey guys, i've been searching on here and it seems as though most folks go with bigger tires when the factory ones are done. The problem is that tire sizes vary from brand to brand, but what i'm looking for is to stay around the stock size of 245/75R16, but to simply go with an AT type of tire. I really like the look of the Destination AT's, but is there a different tire that would work well for an AT tire? I don't do much mudding, but I wan't something that is going to be good for light off roading. Also, is there much of a difference betwee 245/75 and 265/70? Thanks!

    245/75R16 and 265/70R16 are the same diameter, but the 265 is about an inch wider.

    Lots of good choices in AT tires, and everyone's got an opinion.
