I'm looking for a decent set of mud terrains that'll fit on 16's. 32x11.5 is the size I'm shooting for. About as big as I can go without adding more lift or serious trimming. I was looking into Cooper STT's, Goodyear MTR, BFG MT, and the entire interco line, but none come close. All of their 32x11.5's are for the 15 inch rim. All of their metrics come close, but are at least an inch off in some dimension, such as 32x10.5 or 31x11.5.

I want the 16's so I have room to upgrade my brakes to the Tundra Calipers. I was under the impression that they won't fit under 15's unless I find something with about 2" of backspace.

I drive about 60% highway, 40% offroad. I live in oregon, so wet roads are about a daily occurence.

Any recommendations are welcome.

If you want 16's, you will be going with the metric version of everything you said. 32's- 265/75. 33's- 285/75, or 255/85.

definatley check out the interco Trixus M/T, apparently great on the road yet still a great M/T for off road. It has more siping than most M/T so it has good mannerism on road in rain and snow. Plus I have the exact same problem as you with wheel size, I hate that there is such a lack of standard sizes for 16" wheels. But the Trixus M/T comes in standard sizes for a 16" wheel so I am actually ordering some today. Some of the only 35x12.5/R16's I have found.

I realize that, but 265/75's come out to 31.5x10.5, shorter and narrower than I want. The metric size I want, according to the calculator I'm using, is 290/70/16. I have no idea if that actually exists, but that's why I was asking in the first place. Nothing I've found comes close to a 32x11.5. If I wanted a 31x11.5 or a 32x10.5 I'd be in business.

it is 265/75/16 trust us. they are taller and wider than stock. i had stock size 265/70/16 bfg r/t and i went up to 265/75/16 bfg a/t and they rubbed like hell before i lifted the suspension because they were at least a full inch taller. get 265/75/16 and you will be happy.

I have a lift, about 2". I'm running 32x11.5r15's right now, with no issue. I want the bigger rims to upgrade the brakes, but don't want to give up tread width or height.

Mayhaps this is not as simple as I had hoped.

265/75 is the equivalent to 32x11.5, regardless of what your calculater says, the reality is they are about the same. why dont you head down to your local tire shop and measure one in person instead giving yourself this e-headache over nothing. bfgs actually measure out to be a little smaller than there stated size. if you go with superswampers most of them in reality measure out to be bigger than there stated size. get 265/75 and you will have the size you want. if you still dont believe us, take your measuring tape, and go out to a shop and measure one.

yep I will vouch with everyone on here a 265/75/ 16 is a 32 inch tire. I have 265/75/16 Mud kings on my truck now, and they are more than an inch taller then the 31x10.5 15 MT baja claws that I had on it before.

The 265 75 16 are 32 inch tires but not as wide as 32 11.50 15. I have the BFG AT in 32 11.50 15 and Maxxis Buckshot Mudders in 265 75 16. They are both the same diameter but different width. Get the Maxxis.

Yeah, 10k miles and you're onto a next tire...

Good if you are in the mud 95% of the time, but on the road they are horrible.
