Default Tallest skinnest tires on '01 4x4

Here in New Hampshire we have deep snow. Best tires are tall skinny tires with aggressive tread. What is the tallest skinniest I can put on my rig?

Without a lift I think about a 265 (metric) or about a 30 (in inches)

A lot of info is left out. Aggressive could mean you're looking for a Super Swamper, which is a very aggressive mud tire, or you might define aggressive as a BF Goodrich Mud Terrain. Either tire will perform very differently. My suggestion is, pick a tire you like and visit a tire store and have the tire techs test fit a set.

I want t to give it that old "high boy" look. Like the old 60's Power Wagons. Tall narrow tires with military style treads. The stpck 265/70r16 are equal to31 inch by 10.5 already?

I just placed an order for Generals AT LT 265 which is advertised as 31.9 inches I will let you know if they rub the plastic inner fender well in the front.

A ratio of 85 will give you a tall skinny tire. 15 and 16 inch rim sized tires are getting rare as the 17 and 18 seem to be taking over.

Those look nice, but not what I pictured you wanted. The look you were looking for has very squared off sidewalls like this Super Traxion in 15". Pricy, but I think this was more what you were looking for.

Just noticed you had 16"s. Here they are in that size. They look great and would be awsome in deep snow, but I bet they HOWL on the highway! LOL

LOL just realized I'm replying to a 5 year old thread. Oh well, maybe someone can benefit from it in the future.
