hi Guys, this is my first post on a forum. I have a 80 series and an off road caravan. i have LT7.50r16 on the van and LT265/75r16 on the truck. Have to replace the truck tyres soon and want to have them all the same. My current thoughts are to change the truck tyres to LT7.50R16. My reasons are that they are a heavier duty tyre, cheaper (not a big factor) slightly higher for more clearance. We don't do any heavy off road just dirt and corrugation's. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

the 7.5x 16 235x85x16 and 265x75x16 shouldall be about the same size eg 32inch

I wouldnt say any tyre available in those sizes is more heavy duty. Yes you can get heavy duty tyres in the 7.5x16 size such as all steel construction and crossply but they will be unsuitable for your use
265x75x16 on your 80 is by far and away the most common size used on recreational 4wds and will give you the widest choice

I would go for All Terrain tyres as you don't need full off road ones like Mud Terrain.

If you went to a good quality All Terrain radial you will find the vehicle handles better, is more comfortable and is more economical.

When choosing All Terrain tyres make sure they are Light Truck construction and they meet you weight requirements, most 4x4 tyres can come in passenger or light truck version and the price is minimal.

Are you running split rims or tubeless rims.

I think split rims are a poor choice for the type of running you're doing.
Can you get a couple of more 80series rims and have 265/75 on the lot?
