35x10.5x16. Will these work?

Hi Guys,

I'm looking at tires for offroad and looking at all options. I came across a 35x10.5x16 and wasn't quite sure how that translates to the more familiar ratio. Does it translate into 265/90/16? If so, do you think I'll have issues with rubbing if mounts are chopped? I'm thinking that although the overall diameter is 34.8, it'll be a rather skinny tire and should allow decent articulation. Yes? No?

Thanks.

I learned recently on just some light 4x4ing that my tires in front rub like crazy dammit - cool sound though. 34'4s. 35s must rub, regardless of BM cut, lift - may be wrong, who knows.

Re: 35x10.5x16. Will these work?

The way you read this format 35x10.5x16 is that the first number is the rough overall diameter, the second is the max section width and the third is the rim diameter. All are in inches - so it's a much more readable definition than the other standard. I got to imagine that this tire will be damn near perfect - Interco SSR?

265/90R16 sounds right for the metric equivalent...

What size do you have (width and OD)?

Oh, and where do you get your avatars from?

EDIT: are you just rubbing on the plastic fender? Mine rubs on that stuff and I keep making it better by trimming with a craft knife while out on the trail... Almost no noise now...

It's the Interco Boggers. Was thinking either the LTB or the Boggers. I know they are suppose to be for mud, but I've read quite a few good reviews of how they perform on rocks too. Mir, you got me looking at the Pitbulls too. They sure have some good reviews too.

There was a good thread on here a while ago about the LTB's (the 34's). Search for "pizza cutters" or something like that. Some of the guys with a bunch of experience really liked them and thought that size was perfect.

The boggers are just a little taller then the LTBs. Bogger's OD is 34.8 where the LTB is 33.6. The Boggers are almost $100 more expensive though.

Re: 35x10.5x16. Will these work?

dont go for a taller tire unless you are going to be doing trails where a 35" is absolutely neccessary. and those trails might promise body damages as well, so i think you might be staying away from those. my tires are supposed to be 33" but they are about 32.6" tall. i have had no problems so far with running a smaller size tire compared to a 35"

the boggers look a little too overkill to me, but that would make the rig look super sweet.

but if these are gonna be trail only tires, then get the cheaper ones so that you dont have to worry about messing them up on rocks and such. and replacement of a dead tire will hurt the wallet less

All good points, plus there's the extra strain on the drivetrain / regear issues...

Re: 35x10.5x16. Will these work?

I checked the ratios and it seems the 34.8s will affect gearing minimally (68mph instead of 65mph). I really don't like stop-gap type of upgrades. I know wide 35s are really rough on the steering, but maybe skinny 35s be ok. Boggers are heavy though. Leaning towards the LTBs, but not even close on making a decision. Mir, get cracking on your Staz! I'm installing suspension this week (Thursday) and want to have some tires/wheels soon. Btw, I do think 3" lift on stock tires will look funny but hehe :P. I'll just have to hit the trails more often!
