1987 ford bronco
On my non lifted 1987 bronco, what size tire should i get. Sticker says 235/75r15xl i want to keep the same rim size but just get something a little bigger up under it.
Thats the metric for a 31x10.5 tire, not all 31s. 235/85-15 is a 31, as is 245/75. They are just narrower.265/75r15 is the metric equivalent of 31s, and sometimes can be a slightly cheaper option (usually because the 31 tends to be a light truck rated tire while the 265s are passenger). For factory height, 31s are about a perfect step up from the 235s, which just doesn't seem to look right.
Would i be able to fit 33/12.50r15 on it
Just referring to more of it being a close to comparable size in terms of height and width within about 1/2" or so when put against the typical option when referring to 31s which is the 31x10.5. I know other slight variations stay close to size, and breaking down every tire to just the basis of a true 31" diameter in general would have a lot of unnecessary running around, and that is just the variation I happen to run, which I will admit that I was a little more concrete in the way I said it, which I am sorry for having failed in that way.Thats the metric for a 31x10.5 tire, not all 31s. 235/85-15 is a 31, as is 245/75.

I would never ever put passenger car tires on. Always light truck. They last so much longer and are more durable.
