Pic request

Anyone running 235 85 16s and medium duty OME springs? Just trying to get a sense of what it will look like if I change out the springs (currently Terrafirma 3" heavy duty).
Thanks in advance!

It's a crappy cell phone picture but I'm running OME Medium in back and stock in front with 235/88/16s.

I ran 235/85's for years on the Castor alloys on my old Discovery. I don't think they looked weird at all, photo for reference..

That's what I'm running now- I think they look fine. I'm just thinking of going down an inch or 2- the 3" terrafirma's set you up a ways- I'm close to not being able to get into my garage. Not the best pic below, but you get the idea.

I will post a pic. IT actually looks worse with the BFG AT's... THey were one stock D-90 alloys... I think the tire looks way too small on a 90 though... IF you are a stock truck, I would run the 255 or 265's

I get rubbing on the rear wheels offroad with my 255's and 2" OME lift. 255/85/16 BFG MT on NATO/Wolf rims.

No need to run a lift at all with 235's or 265's.

I'll see if I can find some pics of my truck with the 2" lift and 235's. they did kinda get lost in the wheel arches.
