Pictures of a Bronco with the standard 235-75R15 tires

Anyone have a picture of a Bronco with the smaller standard size 235-75R15 tires?

I'm thinking about getting a used set of these to help with mileage on a long trip I'm taking this summer.

If you want to save on gas on your trip, drive a tad below the speed limit. We drive about 55 wherever we go, but try to avoid the high-speed interstates. Also use 85 octane (or the lowest available) and a tad more advance timing (just before ping). Fill your tires to sidewall cold pressure. All this is subject to MUCH argument.

Both our Broncos have the standard tires you mentioned, but the pictures are pretty lousy. Walmart Uniroyal Liberators usually run about $75 a piece.

How old are the tires? Can you send me a picture of a penny in the tread. How much?

Thanks,
Joe

Unfortunately I'm too much of a leadfoot to drive 55 but I will be doing some other things besides tires to help improve mileage including a EEC tune, new plugs gapped at .56, and timing bump. I'm running 87 cheapest available around here.

I think these are stock size. I really haven't paid any attention to them since I got the Bronco from my Father in Law. They're pretty new with maybe 1000 miles on them. He replaced all 4 when his factory original spare blew shredding his Original Bronco cover.

Cool thanks guys. I like the look of 31's better but the small ones don't look bad at all especially if it will safe me some $ on this trip.
