Thinking about 315 75 r16 MTRs

I am thinking about fitting this tire to my D90. It has OME HDs all around. I want to put them on the stock wheels, my question is how much if any trimming? I am not going to wheel it just drive it around poseur style.

I don't think you have to trim since they will not stick out like if you have steel wheels. When I had my 35's on 15X7 I only had to do very minor trimming but when I put them on the 15X8 with more back spacing I had to trim more. Now your turning radius will suffer a lot.

I have 315/75/16 MTR's on my rig and I had to put 1in. spacers on with factory wheels. Helped with the turning radius and also looked better.

Dude, if you are going for style appeal, narrow is the ultimate en vogue on a Defender...
