110 Tires

I love to ask questions that have been beaten to death. What is the most stock like tire I can get for a 110. I basically want to replace the cracked side wall tires that are on the 110 I just got but I want it to look and ride the same. I kid of dig the skinny look. I know the michelins are hard to get

I swear I gave you links to the currently available Michelin 7.50 r16s. They make an XPS traction which is similar to what you have now.

You did, but I wasn't sure if that really was it since it said commercial and on that site when I tried to enter the vehicle info it said no tire existed.

Yes, they are fine and work. I know of at least one 110 which has them.

thanks - it kind of blows. the tires on the truck maybe have 5000 miles on them. It sat so long that there are cracks all over the sidewalls.

If they have new tubes, I would run them as is if the cracks are not deep.

7.50 are a standard fit over here, for "off road" grip, you can't get much better than Michelin XZL or XCL, I think their road tread tyre is an XPC.

Also fitted are Avon Rangemaster, a very road type tread.

Or 235/85/16's, and you'll have a whole host of choice there. here general's are fitted for road tread, or BFG MT or ATs (from the factory)

I have all terrains on the 90 and I like them but I want the skinny look on the 110. Plus I want it to be as quiet as it is now

Just get BFG all terrains in the 235/85-16 profile instead of the stock 265/75-16's that you have on the 90.

They're not going to be any louder that the ones on your soft top. I thought you said you liked them?

Follow-up Post:

If quieter is what you want, get a light truck tire, like Michelin LTX AT/2's.

I just like how much quieter and smoother the 110 is than the 90. Dont really want to give that up

Honestly I have a 90 and love it. Girlfriend hates it because it gives her flashbacks of being a little kid riding around in her dad's FJ. I bought the 110 on a fluke deal and she came for a ride and was like I really like this thing. It rides so smoothly. With that I was thinking I must keep the ride like that so I can justify having two...

Go with the BFG A/T's or ... in my case I sent you info on the tires I use: BF. Mud Terrains 255/85/R16's (tall skinnys as they call them)

Mine are siped (many tire places can do this for you) and this gives better traction on wet roads and they run extremely quiet once siped.
