Ok I am sorry to post yet another tire size question, alas I am so in over my head and you guys are always so dang good at answering my questions
I have actually a few questions ..in order of urgency. My van is a 2008 advance 4x4 conversion. I have had it converted last sedpt, and it runs great.
1. I currently have puny little tires(limited budget at the time of conversion and as the old tires we new left them on) ..225/75/16 on my mojave rims, and am finally buying new tires....should i change to 285/75/16 or 265/75/16. I know most people run the 285, which is also what I would like, but lots of the online tire pages warn you that running tires sizes that are more then 3% off can lead to brake failure? I do have the stock brakes, so I wasn't sure if it be safer to stay with say 265?
2...if I do get a 285/75/16 installed, do I need to get the 4x4 realigned?
3. I bought he mojave 16 inch wheels, and to fit the oem brake they require spacers. But for a spar I still have the original oem spare....counting that the spacers are installed, do I need to also change my spare so it has the correct caliper spacing? Or can I run run the oem withheld spacer on, and just have extra caliper spacing?
Ps I did check tons of tire posts and settled on the bfg a/t because xthey seem to be a good compromise for what I need....which is mainly road, 20% poorly graded fire road with a very occasional rock crawl...and as I live in whistler, bc good snow performance
...and the snowflake will help with highway patrol
