Wow fun deal! About what I figured on your measurements. I'm at 38-38 1/2" with 265x17 tires. I'd guess you're still on 245x16 and will be changing that? Be interesting to see what size tires you can get on there if you do change them out.

Again, great looking rig and glad to see another active GM van on here.

Very fun!

Stock tires for now, "Bridgestone 245/75R16." Will be moving up to a 33" tire. -Being comitted to live 100% debt free, need to save up a bit first.

Eventually. I met with Jeremy in January and toured his shop; which was very professionally run and organized from what I could see.

Thanks guys!

OK, looking at the following combination in the near future. Anyone have any input/ experience with the following combination. Use will be: fire road, snow, some sand and or mud. Have the same tires on my Jeep, so thought id try them on the van, unless someone here has a better idea or caution.

Thanks,

Gar

Love those wheels. How are the Toyo MTs for road noise?

On the Jeep XJ, they are quiet, and unlike the "GoodYear Wrangler MT/R" I had on the Jeep in 2010, they stayed quiet throughout the life of the tire.

Interesting side note on the first set of Toyo tires I had on my Jeep... Two of them said "Made in the USA" on the sidewall, two did not. The USA Toyo tires I had wore out faster than the made in Japan Toyo tires. Go figure. Needless to say, I made sure all four of the second set did not say "USA." -Normally I go out of my way to buy American whenever possible.
