My guess: its no good on the hardware and probably unsafe to drive. But the real problem is gonna be the computer systems that freak out.

I've included the cost of a matching spare in my plans to upgrade,
- max
You're upgrading to 265/75r16 tires? If so, are you going to calibrate your speedometer for the larger size? Thanks!

I was thinking LT265/70R17 but now you're making me want to leave work and go check my notes. Basically I was going to go up 1" in diameter where you're talking about 2".

As I understand it we can't update the computer for our new tire sizes (lame). So we're stuck with it providing incorrect readings. According to tire comparison web pages going up 1" in diameter will mean when my speedo reads 70mph I'll actually be traveling 72.5mph. I can live with that.

The 265/70/17 has the same diameter as the 265/75/16, both going up 1". I can also live with the speedo difference, but I wonder how much the larger tires affects the ABS system and other components. Probably not much. Probably worth it!

Ah, duh, I didn't see you were sticking w/ 16" wheels.

Are you thinking the stock wheels? I plan on ditching them because of the 6.5" width. The Method wheels are 7.5" and these larger tires seem to want at least 7"...

I was thinking of keeping the stock wheels, but may upgrade to the Method wheels. However I prefer the 16" wheels because they're better for off-road driving. Do you know the largest tire size that will fit the stock wheels? Thanks!

I notice on page 1 of this post BajaSportsMobile (Agile OffRoad) says the biggest tire size that'll fit on stock wheels is 265/75R16.
