Im looking at getting new tires before the next trip to Moab. Ive been trying to find 31x12.5 for the 16" wheels, and nobody has them!! super swampers is the only ones and i really dont want those. i already talked to discount tire, tire rack, and les schwab and neither have a 31x12.50... so it looks like my only option is to go metric. im looking for a mud terrain, good wear, noise isnt that bad of a problem (as most radial MTs are fairly quiet), good traction for off road (sand, mud of course, rocks, loose dirt, the usual). any suggestions?

why a 31"?
the 275/70r16 are equivalent to a 31" tire and I really dont want to run a 33" or 285/75... as i drive this vehicle everyday and sometimes take the 500 mile road trip to vegas and back. it sees off road every weekend sometimes more

I would recommend 32" (265/75/16) that is the stock OR size. BFG M/T's are great, last very long (for a MT) and are not that noisy, great on all sorts of terrain.

265/75/16 fit without any problems.
