    Update on my 235/85. They do much better than the bfgs. I think more of the problem is the taco is too light for snow. On the highway they are straight and true. Good offroad. They did pretty well on the roads with snow with whatever condition (packed, icy, ect)

    What tire did you go for in that size? I have LT235/85-r16E Blizzaks for winters and they are better fuel economy, ride quality, and quieter than 10 ply BFG AT's in 265/75/16.

    I almost went for 235/80/17's in my new summer tires (LTX MS2) but since they are for highway travel and I'm not worried about having better "bite" in the snow and ice, I went for 265/70/17

    Duratracs for the 235/85's. Also, like you, I will be getting summer tires, treadwright AT's in 265/75/16

    I had 235/75/15 on my stock 5 lug wheels. I think the rims were 6" maybe? there was a little pooch but nothing i was ever worried about. It did surprisingly well in snow and mud with A/T tires being effectively just one wheel drive..
