Tire Recommendations for 110

Guys, I have a set of deep dish rims on my 110. Was wondering what the best tires would be to get? I won't lie, majority of my miles are on-road, but would still like the ability to use them off road as well. Any thoughts, sizes, etc I should be considering? Thanks!

Dude something thinner than what it left me with. 265 / 75 / 16 would be my suggestion.

I like the Bridgestone REVO AT- quiet, long wearing, good water dispersion, not too aggressive for sand, decent for mud when aired down, modern tread design and carcass compared to a BFG A/T ( another good choice).
Any lift? 235/85 is pretty close to a 7.50/16, 265/75 was stock on a NAS 90 right, but the 110's came with 7.50?, 285/75 are good with a little lift so is 255/85.
Lots o' choices....

I live the general grabber TR 235/85/16 tyres for best road performance, very quiet.

235/85/16 BFG KM2 are as far as I'm concerned the best sollution for the 110.

I had 235/85/16s km2s on my NAS 110. If was going to do it again I would go 265/75/16. I prefer the ride of the wider tire.

If you want a nice ride on the road but want something semi-aggressive, get 265/75/16 BFG ATs. They will last forever.

I'd also go for the 265/75-16 option in the BFG All-Terrain. That is the stock tire on NAS soft tops so it would look great on your beach runner style truck. I think the skinnier 235/85-16s look good on 110s in general, but yours would benefit from the beefier look.

I have a set of 265/75 Radial Rovers A/Ts on mine and I like the ride on the road - I have pics on the "Big Fat 110 registry" thread if you want to check out the look.

7.5 R16 Dunlop Radial Rover RT, on my 88
235 85 R16 BFG Commercial T/A Traction on the 110

I'm quite satisfied with both and would buy either one again. However, the RT's seem to be difficult to find these days.

Trevor:

Not to hijack, but any chance you've got a pic of the REVO A/Ts on your truck that you can post? I run Wolf steelies with 235/75-16 KM2s (love them) but have an alternate set of Boosts that I've been contemplating putting a 2nd set of rubber on so I can swap on and off. Have considered the REVOs but would like to see them in action on a Rover (preferably a Defender, but any will do).

BFGoodrich All Terrain TA's 285/75/16 are simply the best looking on rover rims in my humble opinion.....
