Any thought on these tires? http://www.intercotire.com/site29.php
They are available as a 265X80-16. The website says they are 32.2" tall, but a tire calculator I put the numbers in cranked out an extra 1/2" putting them at 32.7". So here we have a tire nearly 33", but not as wide as 285's. Would these fit without rubbing? Anybody had experience with these to comment on mileage, on/off road rating, noise, etc?

they would prob. fit like the 285s, melt mod required. Expect shorter life as the S.S. tires are usually made with a softer compound thus they have a shorter life on road, but are great offroad. And, as with any larger than stock sized tire, expect a hit on the gas mileage.

great tire so I have heard ditto on the soft rubber....I just know from a few people that have had interco tires that balancing was sometime an issue otherwise A+

I don't think they should rub at all. But maybe they do. I'd like to get these as a second set. No $$ for it just yet.
