Hey all. I just bought a set of Mondials, which I've craved since the dawn of time.

My issue is I don't know which tire size to buy. I want to find the right sidewall size for the right look.

Google Images has been useless and I'm not able to find relevant pics w/ such information on this site.

If you're running 255/55, 255/60, 255/65, 265/55, or 265/60 on 18s I ask that you do me a massive favor and post up a pic and your set up.

Thanks a mil!

255/55 1st one is either in standard height, or when I was coiled. I cant remember. 2nd and 3rd is Offroad height.

Then I can't remember the size exactly, but these were my snow tires. I think they were 245/65 or 265/45? Something like that.


E
dit. They were 245/60's.

Here are a couple of mine with 265-65-18s. I think they fit the truck well with stock EAS settings, but since these pics were taken I lifted it 2 inches for normal and off road heights. I had to remove the mud flaps and it rubs a bit on the inner fender wells with full articulation off road, but perfectly liveable.

Thanks guys! Yooper- those things are huge!

I think I'm leaning more towards the 255 direction, but I would definitely like to see as much variation as possible before I pull the trigger.

hjames - what brand/model of tires are you running in the 4th picture w/ the silver mondials?

If it was the one with snow. Those were Goodyear Wranglers. If it was the one after that, they were Cooper Weather Master WSC's.

I'm actually getting new tires in a week or so. Leaning towards the Nitto Terra Grappler. For the whole set it'll be $861.98. I might just buy a set of 16's with tires on them already though. There's a guy who I've bought stuff from before who has the 16" 'twin spoke' Land Rover wheels with a near new set of Firestone Destination A/T's for $500.

I can't comment as to whether they Goodyears were good or not. They were pretty shot when I bought the P38 and I only drove on them for like a week before getting the snow tires. The Coopers wore pretty quick, and were noisy, but were great in the snow (what I expected from a snow tire). The Michelin Latitude Tour HP ZP (Zero Pressure- run flats) I currently have, I absolutely hate. They wore like crap. I bought them with 50% tread, and I'm now very very close to the wear bars, only 5k later.

I actually purchased 255/55 Nitto Terra Grapplers last night after seeing them on RRToadHall's Callaway and reading all the positive reviews about them.

They dont have the exact look I wanted but they're supposedly fantastic in snow and that's important.

$811 for four including mounting and balancing.

Thanks for your help
