BFG KO2 295/75R16. I want the spare on a door mounted rear carrier, not a swing arm, as I am down to inches in fitting the rig in my new driveway without overhanging the sidewalk and being in HOA/CC&R trouble. I'm still looking for a wheel that fits both the tire and the Sprinter, preferably Method, maybe ROAMBUILT.
We moved to WA this week, and of course it has rained most of the time we've been here. Those 315s are 12.7" wide and I'm a little cautious about hydroplaning. The 295 is 11.6", which seems a good use compromise between the hydroplaning problem and having better aired-down flotation than the 10.7" 265 when we are in sand. The 295 diameter is 33.3" while the 315 is 34.5", so I would have only 1" less clearance.
is a good KO2 tire comparison chart, while this
is the page for the specific tire.
BTW, I'm wide open to suggestions on both the tire and wheel.
