What are you trying to do Oxman?


275 60 is too big for a 6.5" rim.

I've seen LT215/75R15 on the rear before. Yes, It was a cougar with BFG A/T's on the rear and Radial T/A's on the front.

My truck has 235/85-16s, they would fit on a SC wheel. I don't think the SC wheels could take the load of a truck through. Hence why my truck has very heavy steel wheels.

I doubt those would fit the rear wheel well of an MN12.

255/70R15 = Roughly 30" tire. Pretty nice static fit actually. They're not on the car anymore, those were on it when I towed it home and have since been replaced with a more.......reasonable size, so I don't know what ride/rubbing is like.

He asked what tires would fit on an mn12 wheel, not what would fit on an mn12 vehicle.

Ha ha, I read it like "what would fit well on a wheel?" figured he was looking to use stock wheels on a custom application.

Sorry I forgot about this thread...

I wanna know what good griping truck tire would fit a 16" rim for winter snow driving. Some thing that will not leave you skidding or doing tail spins. And no it's not for my Thunderbird, I was thinking about getting a DD bird again.

Bridgestone Dueler A/Ts and Dueler A/T Revos are both good tires.
