The roof being water tight is key.

2 week wait time, it was rough.
Nope. Got mine through BJs in 3 days. Just didn't post pic yet. Really happy with this size and tire.

Those 17's that Lane is selling look sweet.

Plus you can get a 34" tire in that rim size which is not possible with a 16" rim.

that was my other option.. 17" with a 34" tire.. frankly the 255/85-16 is perfect though

------ Follow up post added March 8th, 2016 06:55 PM ------

just a Public safety message ..

255-85/16 does not rub at all (O%) with a 2" OME lift.. stock i cant see it rubbing either but i don't have that.

boosts and A/T's are moving to storage

For clarity, do you mean off road also?

Just had a 110 with stock lift that rubbed pretty bad with 255/85/16's KM2's, that was just road use....

On the radius arms when at full lock? I had a 95 D90 in the shop the other day with 265/75 M/T's that rubbed the radius arms. A simple steering stop adjustment will fix that.
