Trade these off-road tires for on-road tires

I have XZLs on NATOs for off, and I want some low profile tires to put on the stock rims for onroad zippiness and low-ridin.

These. Bridgestone 235/85/16. They are abot 70% left or so...

Wicks,

If I put these on my truck will it take away my front end wobble?

Depends on your balance.

Hey Wicks,

I'll trade you my 235/85/16 BFG AT KO's on NATO rims. I have 4 KO's and one old style spare on a regular rim. 70% on front tires and 50% tread on rear.

The AT's have got to be quieter than what you have on there now

Wicks,

What size are you looking for? I have 245/70-16 (29") Michelin XCX/APT on Freestyle alloys.

Those could work Javier. Ar ethe tires in decent shape? And the freestyles - the ones off the 94 90? (maybe we could just trade some rims instead of having to dismount them).

Wicks,

Let's do it. The tires are as follows. Two rears used to be fronts, have about 50% life left. The fronts and spare have 90-95% tread left.

I can email you some pics. What's even more perfect is that we're practically neighbors, no shipping involved

No trimming necessary.

Follow-up Post:

Javier, what are the size numbers on your tires?

Wicks,

You have mail, they are 245/70-16 on perfect Freestyle alloys. Let's do it if you're still up to it.
