    235/85-17 vs 255/75-17

    I was just at Walmart and they have 5 235/85/17's Goodyear Duratrac on sale for 66 bucks a piece. They are E load, but my wife wants some "knobbier" tires. I figure I could get maybe 150 to 200 bucks for her SRA's on craigslist.

    Outside of them being like 1/2 and inch narrower and a little rougher, you guys see any big issue?

    They only have 5 and I am thinking of going back and getting them in the next hour or so. Fuck it's only 330 bucks.

    you know what. They are 235 80 not 85 and that puts them like 1/4 smaller and 3/4 narrower. Now I am second guessing because I read the side wall wrong.

    Smaller tires might bend axles.

    Yeah unhappy year or two averted. Yes they would have looked queer and she would have probably reminded you weekly. :(
