Default Entertaining tire suggestions - FJ40

I need new tires. Want something that works well, looks cool, and isn't a BFG AT. I just need to be more different than that, even though it's probably a decent choice. Just want something more 40ish, more militant looking. Here are your other variables:

Will be getting OEM rims, which are 5.5" wide, 15". Suspension is the OME 2-2.5" Dakar kit. Uncut fenders. 3:73 gears, stock 4 speed.

I think a 32" tire would be the right size. In my last 40 I ran 33" x 10.50's on 60 series rims, with stock springs. So I am pretty certain I can still run a 33. But for efficiency reasons am thinking 32 is better. Plus those 33's really stuffed in there, I didn't rub but also didn't wheel that hard... (name that trail, Jacket)

Here's a pic of the rim/color combo we're shooting for. But yes I know, BFG AT's..



Maxxis makes a buckshot mudder in a 32 x 11.50. that would fit, right?

I would also run Bughorns again, in fact this is likely leading the pack here in the 32 x 11.50 http://www.maxxis.com/catalog/tire-1...bighorn-mt-762



what else is out there?

I have Toyo AT II's on my 100 series. I flipped a coin between those and the new BFG AT KO2's. Both are new tire designs and the Toyo MTs have always been good

I do have the BFG AT KO's on my 40 with a 2.5" OME DAKAR lift which is smaller than the lift on my um your old 40 when you bought it.

Default Tires

I really liked the KM2's on my 40. They were 33x10.5 though.

Slaughterhouse?

Cooper STT's come in 32x11.5x15. They chunk and get noisy with age, but so do the Bighorns. Noise isn't as big an issue with a 40 though.

Is 11.5" wide on 5.5" rims alright? That would seem to me to be a bit much. I thought 33x10.5 on my factory 6" rims was pushing it and liked them better on 7" rims.

A 32x11.5x15 is a 285/75R15, you can use this calculator to see what it would look like.

Yea - 15" rims are tough; the size selection is limited. An ideal size would be 235/85/16 for 32" of height, which is what I may run next (currently I'm on 255/85/16).

Dave raises a good point. I'm not sure I've seen anything wider than a 10.5" tire on the OEM FJ40 rims.
