Currently using Michelin LTX M/S LT225/75R16E. Just slightly larger then original stock tire, which are no longer available by Michelin. (I'm driving a 1995 RR County Classic).

On my '92 RR I'm running 215/85R16 BF Goodrich Trac Edges, my second set of such and probably one of the last sets in captivity. Next time around I may go to 245/75R16.

As do I and many others. Bummer decision of BFG to ax that tire from its line. Cooper made a comparable and well-loved tire, too, call the Discoverer CTD and quit making it about the same time. About the only (somewhat) comparable tire still available is the Dunlop Radial Rover RT (at least it has Rover in the name!). I may go with that next time but may also go with a siped MT, with 3-ply sidewalls, such as the Cooper Discoverer STT.

SWB - 285 75 R16 BFG KM2 MT's (3" suspension lift / 2" body lift)
- wicked tire, on and off-road, way better than the BFG AT's I had previously.

LWB - 265 75 R16 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armours (2" suspension lift)
- Got 4 of 'em almost brand new off Craigslist for a total of $500. Normally $225+ per tire, guy slapped too big of meats on his brand new Jeep Liberty and I was the beneficiary!
