Tires and seat covers

I have a 1994 D 90. I have an 1.5 in Old man Emu suspention lift. Currently I have 14 year old BF Mud Terrains. I want to fill out the wheel well and get a tire that is wider, but fits on the origional rim. I am not worried about noise on the highway since I can't hear anythng anyway. I am thinking about getting mud terrains again, because I really like the look but I wanted to find out if there is another timre I should look at and what is the best size I should get. I think I heard 285 75 18. Is that correct.

Lastly, I need seat covers for the truck. What is the best quality seat covers out there?

The 285's will fit however you may loose a little in the turning radius. (they may rub your front C arms.) Just extend your bump stops and your done. Now another issue may be the gearing change that will occur with the taller tire. If you re-gear then your back to stock, almost, with the taller tire.

Check Out Melville and Moon seat covers. Various outlets have them in the US as well. It's a different style than badger.

Stock wheel size are 16 not 18
