Any good ideas as to where to order 235 85 R16 BFG M/T KM2s? I went to Tire Kingdom, Discount Tire, and a couple of local spots here and none can get them. Said there is a "nationwide back order."

Too big on a D1 you say???
315/75/16 on stock wheels with spacers.
Front with very clean camel cut.


Rear with unnoticeable inner arch trimming by the door and slightly more aggressive cutting behind the wheel.


Lots of people that haven't tried will tell you what you can't do.

Thanks fellas. I like the stock-ish look of the D1 so far... and dont trust my skills enough to do any trimming. Maybe someday.

It is less than two minutes with a dremmel.

x2..

I ran 235/85-16's on my Disco with a 2" lift, no trimming was necessary, and no rubbing was noted. Personally, I think the 235/85-16 is the idea size for the 1st Gen Discovery..

Edit: It also had wheel spacers on it in that photo..

I run 235/85/16's on my daily driver D1 and could have used a tiny bit of trimming in the back. Maybe half inch? But now I've got some nice bent sheet metal. :D

Yes. It is such a small amount no one would ever notice. Blue tape. Mark the line. Cut with the little cut off wheel on a dremmel (or saw or whatever). Use the cutoff pieces as earnings for the girlfriend.
