the exact translation is 267/81-16 so the closest tire to that would be a 265/80-16. i don't think that's a common size.

You are gonna be looking for a 265/75/16 which is the closest common size to yours, but is not 33". An 80 tire would be kind of out of propotion unless it's for commerical use I think. If you are looking for a 33" tire, I'd say try 285/75/16.

Marko has it right - It's 285/75R16.

This might prove interesting - http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/asset...rain_ta_km.pdf

ah, looks like the closest available seems to be these
LT255/85R16/D 10"x33.3"

hmmmmm... tall and skinny...
Wonder what they look like on a runner and how much lift is needed to run them...

Why would you wanna do that? You'd lose traction and IMO, it'll look just plain ugly. No one here has used those wheels and I assume you won't really find out what kind of lift you need, but I am gonna guess somewhere around 3-4". Maybe even less because they are so skinny, depends on where they rub.

I'd go for 285/75/16.

A wider tire doesn't mean more traction.

was just curious after reading about the guy on here running 35x10.5's with no lift...
I've seen pics of guys running the 33x10.5x15. They don't look too bad. But thats exactly what I was thinking. Since they are skinnier, not as much lift would be needed... They don't make them in the AT ko though...

I have no rubbing issues as of yet. The front valace and the plastic corners on the front bumper are coming off soon. Also probably pound the pinch weld while I'm at it. Overall I'm very happy with the way the fit and how they look.

You sure about that? More surface area contacting the ground means more adhesive friction, means more traction. To me at least.... I might be wrong though.

Umm... If you look at pinnacle's profile, it looks like he has a lift:
/members/2589.html

Those coilovers and the Total Chaos kit will be the lift.

He may have a lift in the pics I quoted but the TC isnt on yet.
Have been reading up on them. Some say they may get a bit better mpg. Good in the mud, good in snow, have to air down a bit in soft stuff though.

I wonder if they would ride better on the highway also... and getting that extra inch of clearance for the axles, for a full foot of clearance

nope. friction is only proportional to the weight on the tire and the coefficient of friction between the tire and the surface. there is no dependance on tire size.

a wider tire may be better because it can be made softer (increasing the coeficient of friction) while keeping the same wear rate as a narrow tire. but assuming that the rubber compounds are the same, then the traction will be the same.

Well buy the coefficient of friction will be greater when a wider tire is pulled forward than a narrower one. Sorry for hijacking here by the way.

no, the coefficient of friction only depends on the materials involved. the size of the contact patch is irrelevant.

and wind resistance. 2 inches wider, 33 inches tall. 66 square inches per tire. 4 Tires = 264 square inches

Yes I ran those tires for about a month without any lift at all. The only rubbing I had was on the back of the front fender and it was very minimal.

The ride is so much better with the muds than the rugged trails.

I'm planning 33x10.5 or even 34x10.5 Swampers for my 85 eventually. No lift, just a trim here and there if necessary.
