I am looking for new tires.. maybe rims too but definitely tires for my XJ Laredo. At Canadian Tire I can get the Long Trail BFG LT235/75R15 for $93.60 each.

I do mostly road driving but small trails around town when I have time. Is this a good tire replacement for my stock rim?

Should I spend a little more money and get a bigger tire and rims?
Is 235/75R15 the largest that will fit on my stock rim?
Does it matter if its a P235 or LT235?
If I got a 15x8 rim how much bigger is a 30x9.5x15 tire than a 235/75R15?

I want a somewhat beefy looking tire that will be good for road use. These tires look to be alright and everyone recommends BFG, what other tires would anyone else recommend? Any help would be great!

I would go with the A/T
1-They look great
2-They are quiet on the road
3-They will out perform the L/T by far off road

They store you buy them from will be able to tell you the largest that will fit. If you want larger ones go with a 2" budget boost lift. Its cheap and easy to install.

I know its late, but I ran with BFG AT's siped for 3years and I hit everything I could with them. The only problem they really ever had was soupy mud. They just didn't clean out enough for my taste.

However they worked great on everything else. The only reason I went with my Cooper Discoverers SST's was I wanted something more agressive tread wise because I started playing in knarly rocks and and I wanted more bite in my tread.
