I'm going back to stock wheel for a bit while the new motor is being built. I want to find the widest A/T tire that can be mount on stock 99 wheels. I want a good tire that will last a while and wear good. I was looking at ProComps A/T in 305/70/16. Anyone else know of a good brand thats wider?

On edit: I just found MT ATZ 375/55/16...? would that fit on stock wheels, seems kinda wide for the wheels.

ProComps IMO have a softer rubber compound. Great off-road tire but not best wearing tire for street. Look at BFG At.....great wearing tire but pricey!
Toyo has a nice tire also. Hope this helps.

I was gonna say check out the MT ATZ.....I think 15.5 would be pushing it.....The biggest Id go on stock rims is a 12.5-13 Your rim is only 8" wide
You could put it on there but you would have alot of buldge

The general rule is that you don't want to put on tires that are more than 4 inches (sidewall) wider than your wheel. I'm curious. Are your stock wheels 8 inches wide? The ones on my 06 were 7.5".

outside dimension is 8 inch lip to lip but, inside dimension is 7.5, rim is stamped 8 inch. is that the same as yours?

99-04 16s were 16x7
04 HDs had 18x8

05-07 are 17x7.5, 18x8 and 20x8



That being said....a 375mm is waaaaayyyy too wide for a 16x7 wheel.

Based on tire rec. specs...a 285 is about as wide as you want to go on a 7" wide wheel
Some guys do go 295 or 305 without issue though.

I ran 315/75/16 for about 2 year without an issuse. So if I want to go up to 375/55/16 I need a wider wheel right?
