I am running 215/85/16 on my stock 16/4.5 m38 rims and they work very well.

I have looked and most 235/85/R16 tires require min. 6.5" rims. Bill says that his 215s work and there are some decent LT offroad tires in that size.

thanks for the responses bill+mike. looking to put some tires on with height and not wide. i saw that rim width also for the 235 wondered if anybody tried them. 215 width sounds good i will do some searching. looking for an aggressive tread with approx. 32" height. thanks again for the responses so far. oldflea
