New tires

Just purchased 5 new Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Pro-Grade in 235/85/16. They feel great and give good ice/snow grip while allowing decent life in the summer. The tread pattern seems pretty agressive for off-road and they're not vey loud plus they have Kevlar belting. Overall, I'd say they are the best tires if you only use one set of tires year-round. Price is pretty good at $133 ea. on Tire Rack (I purchased for $175 ea. at my local shop).

Interesting also, I've been interested in preserving the "skinny tire" look of the 110, but wondering about sizes. Charles, did you buy those tires for Janey? Lets see a pic!

Tires

Discount Tire was running a $60 rebate on 4 BF Goodrich tires this weekend. Went with the KO/Ats in 235/85/16 and I really like them. Drove home in a snow storm this evening and didn't slip once.

I sure would like to see a pic of the 235/85-16's BFG's on a 110 - one of you guys has to be able to help me out!

John, what did you end up paying? I just put those on my 110 and love them too. I want to say it was just under $200 each with mounting locally.

Jim, I'll get you some pics.

It was dark when I got home so I just took these in the garage - not the best sorry. Ignore the first shots which I took to try explain the alloy depth problem I saw. Oh, never got around to taking pictures on the alloys btw.

I finally realized you had all those pix when you posted in the other thread about wheel fit. Those tires look good - I think I'll get some when I replace the tires on my 110.
