Default FJ40 Wheel and tire recomendations

Hey folks, my 40 is almost ready to hit the road and needs new tires, and might as well do rims too.

I have an OME 2.5 lift, and a custom FJ62 power steering box with custom tie rods as well as disc calipers all around. Right now everything seems to clear the current 31X10.5X15 setup just fine.

I'm looking mostly for a good highway tread, nothing too aggressive & loud, something tall enough to get an overdrive effect. Engine is turbo'd, so it should have plenty of torque even for a tall tire at elevation.

Should I go with a taller rim on the next go around than the stock 15 inch?

Any pointers to a rim with good backspace and large enough center hole for the front hubs?

TIA/Steve C.

Are you sticking with 31s or going to a different tire size?

Everything is on the table. (As long as it will fit).

It looks like the 255/85/16 size is virtually unobtainium. I'm liking the Yokohama GEOLANDAR H/T G056, but the closest size I can get is 265/75R16, thoughts?

Stock rims are 5.5 in. wide. FJ60 chrome rims are 6.0 in. wide, both of which are on the narrow side for that tire, but will work just fine.
