New skinny tires

Liking these so far. 235/85-16 Pirelli Scorpion Mud. Only radial mud terrain of this size I've been able to find with a C load rating.

Haven't had a chance to play off road with them yet, but so far so great! 2-1/2" suspension and 1" body lift. No rubbing anywhere, even steering full lock.

Those skinnies do look good on there. Your paint job might not like them though if you have to drive on any gravel. I have some big lug skinnies on mine and they will pick up an inch and a half stone and bounce it off your truck at about 40 miles an hour. I am going to change mine over for everyday driving and use the big lug ones for show. Ken

Thanks all!

As for gravel getting thrown around - too late for the good advice. I also use a set of Super Swampers about the same size. The rock chips just aren't showing up in the photos.

Time to add some clear film to the lower rockers to keep chips at bay. Cheaper than a paint job

I had it put on my Toyota pick-up when i bought the truck new in 2016. It was put on by the dealer. I have bought some 3M film for my Bronco from TCP Global but i havent put it on yet.

Have used it on a bunch of cars, usually go with a 3M brand just seems to be much better quality.

those look really aggressive. Suits the Bronco-look perfectly.
What height did they measure out at on the vehicle? Width and height?
Assuming 7" wheels?
