I used to run a set of those Series wheels (16 x 5.5) without tubes on my Discovery with no problems at all.

The one ton wheels were made for tubes but most people run them tubeless. I have been for four years with no issue. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone still running them with tubes. The nas 110 came with tubed tires but by now most of those trucks are on new rubber.

I'm having a hard time picking out the right size tire for these new rims. It's not cheap so I want to make sure I'm happy with the size. Here's what I'm thinking: 235/80 R16 KM2's on my ANR 4636 Rims. How does that sound? I want to make sure it won't cause problems (too big?) or looks goofy. The image shows what I currently have on the right and the new tires on the left. Does anyone have a picture of a 235/80 R16 KM2 on a steel rim so I can see what it will look like?

Picture is wrong. The ANR.. rim is R16 not R15, right?

I don't see 235/80R16.

Thanks for that list.

Suppose I could do: LT235/70R16/C or LT235/85R16/E ?

Is 85 too tall for that rim?

235/85 is narrower but approximately the same height as the original tires of the NAS D-90 (ie, your 265/75 that you have now). With your OME suspension, I would think you want a little more tire. How about 255/85?


edit: FYI- 85 is not a height, it is the percentage of overall height of the tire that can be attributed to the sidewall

235/85 and 265/75 are about 32"
255/85 and 285/75 are about 33"

You don't think that 255 is too wide for a 5.5 wide rim? ...or that 85 is too tall? I want as tall as I can get away without causing problems. I'm ok with going narrow just not too narrow.

I actually used to own a set of those wheels but I sold them before I put tires on them. I don't have experience myself, but if I had a set I would look for 8.25r16 michelins or 255/85 BFG. It looks like Chance was considering 255/85 when he posted on 5/12/11 in this thread. 285/75 might be pushing the limits of the width of that wheel but I would think 255/85 would be ok.

For reference here is what 235x85's look like on a 90. My truck does not have a lift so they might be a little small on yours. I think they look good (vintage) with stock suspension. I do have the 6.5" 110 wheels though.

Cheers,
James

Funny you mention that. I was going to put it off until the fall, but the prices keeps going up. So I ordered up the Cooper Discoverer S/T (http://www.coopertire.com/html/produ...=discoverer_st) in a 255/85-16. According to their specs, the approved rim width for that size is 6.5-8". I'll be putting them on the NAS110's ANR4636 6.5" rims.

Personally I wouldn't fit anything that has a minimum rim width of more than 6" to a 5.5" wheel, particularly if it has a high profile.

I don't think so, since the ANR4636 are 5.5" rims.

I said NAS110 Steel Wheels, but typed wrong PN. ANR1534 is what I meant to type.

Thanks everyone for all the advice. I would ideally like to get the ANR1534PM but they are hard to come by locally and I would have to shell out quite a bit more to ship, de-paint and de-rust. I have already cleaned these rims and they are at the painters so I'm trying to see if I can make these work with a tire size that I like. Looks like 235/85 would be ok.

Those look really good on your truck, James. Do they rub on the fenders when you articulate off road? I'm wondering if I can swing those on my steel rims. It would only be 0.5" over the rim width range recommendation. Is that safe? Here's what my LT265/75/R16 currently look like:

It sucks that 7.50R16's are so difficult to come by in the states anymore. They'd fit great and give you the diameter you seem to be looking for.

Thanks... They do not rub at all and are basically the same diameter as the 265's so it wouldn't affect your speedometer or performance. Might even feel zippier as there is less rolling mass. They are somewhat skinnier (1.2") than the 265's but about an inch wider than the 7.50 xzl's I have. I don't believe you would have any issues with the rim width, worst case scenario you wear the center of the tread a little quicker than the outside, I still don't foresee that being an issue.

Are you talking about the Michelin XLZ's? It would be a great fit and it appears to be an extremely durable tire but I have read some mixed reviews on here when it comes to noise, rain, mud and snow performance. Are they as good as the KM2's? XLZ's seems like an ideal overlanding tire but perhaps not as good of an off road tire? Robber's North has them in stock. I'm just wondering if they're worth the extra $$$?

The only two I'm aware of that appear now and then are the XZL's and G90's (which I have), both of which have their drawbacks.
I also have a set of Cooper Discoverer STT's in 7.50R16, but it's the old style and NLA.

Got the 255 Coopers installed today. Liking them so far. They seem to be a little noisier than the BFGs. I really like the new size though.

You probably said this but what brand are the tires? I like your roof rails too

Goodyear Dura Trac's. I have them on 3 of my trucks and really like them. They wear well and are quiet if you keep them rotated regularly.

I made the rails to carry my RTT and will tie them to a real ladder with a basket if I can ever get other peoples stuff done so I can work on my own toys. I wanted something unique so I coped the ends to match the angle of the windscreen and cage.

Coopers look good Chance!
