Chris,

I'm a little slow...So these are 265/??-16s?

Looking for new treads for the 80 but I think these would be a tad too small...For some reason I'm thinking 275s are stock 80 size :confused:

Hi Jeff,

Just looked. They are 265/75/R16. Not sure what is stock for the 80s. If you were interested, I am guessing you don't want the spare cover that says FJ on it...haha

I was going to keep and put on during winter, with new TRD wheels but with the house pop, my mod budget has been slashed...So this is a way to fund my RTT project.

Of course I have already spent the money if I sell them, on a new TRD exhaust pipe....talk about fuzzy math.

I am like the guy with the 3 upside down cups on the street corner, is it under this one, or this one, or this one???

Honey, we don't need tile right away in the bath room....Lets look at this overland website some more, shall we....

Chris it is a common "upgrade" size for the 4Runners 3rd gen

and Yota Tech or T4R may get you some interest as well.

That is a good price for 5 for sure.

If you are not on those forums just let me know and I will make a linkover to this ad....

Ok...

Can someone smarter than me figure this out :confused: :hill:

265/75/R16s = 31.6 tall, 10.4 wide (7.8 section height)

275/70/R16s = 31.2 tall, 10.8 wide (7.6 section height)

So, Chris's tires should work on an 80 but they would be slightly taller and slightly narrower? As long as all 4 + the spare are the same this really shouldn't make much difference should it?

Chris, I'm considering them depending on responses to my question above but I'm leaning more toward some Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos...More $$ but I need something with good road manners and snow capability for the :Princess:'s rig

Jeff, you have first dibs. Thanks for the math lesson, I can never figure out what it all means beyond the 16" part. Jeff, just let me know in here, if you don't want them and I will have Ron post links for me. Thanks Ron!

From the BFG website:

Tire Size--------Rim Width----Section Width----Diameter----Max Load@PSI

LT265/75R16/E---7 - 8--------10.5 on 7.5-------31.8--------3415@80

LT275/70R16/D---7 - 8.5------11.1 on 8---------31.2--------3000@65

So Chris' tires are about .6" narrower and .6" taller. They will fit on an 80.

Hi guys,
There may be other tools like this out there, but one I use often is located here:

Unfortunately it does not accommodate flotation sizes, but if you play with it you can land on a diameter that matches flotation for comparisons.
