    Oh, dear god...original post was mocking I-70 bros.

    And 22's on a truck?

    Slammed with 22's and Blizzaks. Ready to cruise for street tacos in East Los Angeles and rip asphalt up to shred Mount Baldy. Anthony Bourdain to the white room please.

    Pathfinder ATs from Discount tire? LT and three peak / snowflake rating. Relative cheap price. How is the snow traction compared to a Discoverer M+S or a Blizzak? Road noise on dry roads? Tread Life?

    Terrible budget tires, had them on a Jeep Grand Cherokee that my wife spun out on compact snow at a low speed... not impressed

    Keep in mind that the 3PMSF rating only requires a modest improvement over a normal M+S tire (10% in straight-line stopping distance, not sure on other tests); most dedicated winter tires crush the minimum standard, but an AT tire may have the symbol and just meet that standard. Unfortunately, there's very little good, independent data out there on LT tires for winter use.

    Truck Tire Time

    Hereís a question thatís mostly unanswerable. Iím finally getting around to ordering tires. Iím running OEM size on a 99 land cruiser (265/75r16). Talking to discount tire, there is not a lot in stock right now in that size, but there are many options in 235/85r16. Iím fine with running skinnies, my only hesitation is the spare, which Iím not planning to change. My spare are a half worn studded tire at 265/75r16. My concern is about a how the cruiserís open diff will ďhandleĒ the size difference if I need to run the spare. The overall ďgoalĒ of that spare is to get me out of where I am that resulted in destroying the tire on the truck. So Iíd likely never need to use the spare when running the winter tires.

    Thoughts and feelings?

    235-85 16 are going to dig like mad on a heavy cruiser in anything soft. 235/85 vs 265/75 are pretty much the same height, probably fine in that regard.

    I would try and get a 265/75 or think about bumping up to a 275/70r18 or similar. You can run rims from a 2008+ tundra or sequoia, often can find tundra rims for cheap from the bro-dozer crowd.

    Thanks for the response and suggestions. Thatís a good point about the skinnies.

    Iíd been trying to avoid getting 18Ē wheels for simplicity sake, but suddenly this is no longer simple. Iíd been holding off buying the tires in the fall due to credit card payment cycles....

    If the cost difference is nominal and tires are more readily available; get the bigger size. I did that many years ago on my '01 LC. It was great.

    thanks for that info. it seems that there are not a lot of tires available at the moment. good times sorting this out. i think this has been beat to death before, but 123 load rating versus 114 or 116 on an SUV? we've been cruising with 116-rated tires the past 3 years. tirerack.com sales rep did not recommend the 123-rated tires for a land cruiser because of poor ride quality.

    tirerack sales rep was recommending firestone winterforce, which are 114 load rated.

    more thoughts and feelings?

    Heavy towing is not regular, generally short distances, and not during the winter....

    Iím just going to throw it out there... Iíve been running 255/85 16 Cooper discover maxx stís on my taco for 4 years now and love them. I had 235/85 grabber at2ís before and these blew them away. I never noticed any digging or sinking with either size, but Iím also in a much lighter vehicle than you are.

    The coopers handle snow, dirt, mud, and ice super well. Iíve had them in some pretty deep snow and they never flinched

    I hate buying tires... Best of luck in your journey. Keep us posted.

    tire shopping/educating seems to be a big time suck for me every few years (damn internet!). when our AT tires (Cooper AT-W) wear out, i may look at MTs or those hybrid tires. it depends on future planned uses of our LC. lately, it's almost exclusively been used for dragging a utility trailer, driving in snowland, accessing trailheads and waterbodies on FS roads/trails, and camping trips (uhhhh, i mean 'overlanding' :P).

    i ended up going with the used 18" tundra wheel route for the winter tires. fiddling around with the tire size conversion site, i found that 265/75r16 (current tires/wheel size) is the same size as 265/65r18

    a useful thing learned: w/ 265/65r18, many tire makers build that size outside of the ~120 load rating (E rate) .

    Following up, that ^^ statement is not correct. 265/65r18 are bigger tires (taller) than 265/75r16. At least 1-2Ē bigger. I havenít measured. I have used tiresize.com to figure this shit out for years. This is the first time Iíve experienced a definite incorrect calculation. Or cooper or firestone are wrong in their sizing, which seems unlikely. Luckily, no rubbing.

    Just bought the wife a 2019 Suburban which has lousy 18Ē all-seasons on it now (it was a CPO lease return). Iíve used Toyo Open Country A/T on my 4Runner for years, but I think the wife would benefit from dedicated snow tires. Recommendations for a non-Studded snow for Western WA?

    Huh?
    265/65 r18 is actually pretty darn close but ever so slightly smaller than a 265/75 r16

    As always with tires, actual dimension may not match stated sidewall dimension but 1-2" off is unlikely.

    How you doing your math?

    Iíll measure full diameter of the tires when I get a chance. Visually, itís a noticeable difference.

    You may want to take a look at the Vredestein Quatrac 5. Not a true dedicated winter tire. But a very solid choice for mixed conditions that you will encounter on Western WA road.

    Or if you are dead set on a winter tire, the General Altimax Arctic is a good value for performance winter tire.
