Help! Looking for some advise, especially if you have first hand experience. Looking for some MT or some aggressive AT tires. This is not a daily and I will be using it for trail and some mud driving for fun. It's the old skinny vs fat tire story. My rig is a 1998 trooper that will be getting a 1 or 2 inch lift. Both sizes seem to cost about the same but there seems to be more options for the 265 size.

I love my 235/85r16, Very stiff sidewall.
What width rims are you using? Thought about putting some on a set of 16" snowflakes, but am hesitant they may be too wide for that tire.

I will be mounting them on the stock 5 spoke wheels. They're either 7 or 8 inches wide.

I am running 16" snowflakes and the rims are almost too wide for the tires. I like the look of 265's more but I love my 235's

Yeah, I wondered if the 16" snowflakes wouldn't be too wide for the 235's. Got any pics?

Looks good! The rims don't appear to be too wide. I like 235's, too. The main drawback, imho, is their weight. What ply are you running? Used to see them in 8 or 10 ply, but it's been a right good while since I've seen an 8 ply.

What did you end up going with?

I have 10 ply sidewalls and I love that because they will never get a stick through the sidewall, but they are pretty heavy. They are just as heavy as my 33x10.5r15 on stock steel wheels.
