The original tires that came on the Tardis were LT245/75 R16 with standard street tires. They were about 30 to 50% worn but still usable on the highway. A trip was coming up to Eastern Oregon that would be over some pretty rough gravel roads so new tires were in order.
Enter forum member Jsweezy and his slightly used BFG KO2 265/75 R16 tires already mounted and ready to go.
The tires are one size larger and fit very comfortably in rear wheel wells. The front is much tighter fit with only about 1/2" between the bumper and the tire when the tire is turning.
A partial turn is the worst condition.
Clearance between body and tire on passenger side.
Clearance between front bumper and tire on driver side.
I have heard some occasional rubbing when backing out of a parking space but have not been able to pinpoint where it is coming from. Have not heard any rubbing when on the highway or trail.
Have been experimenting with tire pressure and found that 55psi in the front and 60psi in he back seems to be the right spot for highway driving.
The speedometer reads about 2 MPH low with the increase in tire diameter. Am sure that the miles traveled is off too but I do not know by how much.
Am happy with how the rig handles on and off the pavement.
