Ive seen so many tire threads so I figured why not make a sticky and put all the good info in it.
Feel free to add more info.

Snow, rain, mud --you name it. TireRack.com had the best prices. I'm sure there are others out there with alternate experiences, but for my $ these Goodyears are hard to beat. Good luck!

More street oriented than most use on their bajas.
Good grip Dry, no squealing.
I have not been able to test them in wet, dirt, mud or snow.

I say this because the Bajas got a minor body and spring lift in 04 and 05. I paid about $109.50 each mounted balanced and disposal fees and tax included.

My 2006 oem tires are Bridgestone Potenza's that are just about worn out (did all Bajas have Potenzas?), but I'll most likely replace them with something else. I'm looking for BEST wet traction and some driving in light snow conditions. Can anyone give me some specific recommendations?

this is narrower then stock but the same rolling dia.. which means the speedo is dead on still
BorlaBaja wrote:Toyo Open Country H/T has a 215/65/16 tire. It's currently what I run on my Baja, it looks pretty agressive but it handles very well and you can do a fair amount of trail riding without any problems.
keep in mind the size side wall is a funtion of the tread width of the dread x the side wall number so you would be having a smaller side wall number with a larger tread width.
so a 215/65/16 = 255/55/16 235/60/16 is close
QUOTE=Buck Rogers "Finally bought some new tires for the Baja after waiting more than a year since I lifted it. Even with a 2" lift, all I could stuff under it were 215/70 16s. Very minor rubbing in front when the outer edge of tire goes by the factory mud guards on turns. Love the ride and height thoughbulwnkl wrote:This is a good calculator to get you close, but you MUST NOT rely on it for an AWD (or 4WD) vehicle. There are rolling radius differences between different brands and even different models of the same brand of the exact same size tire. That's why Subaru tells you not to mix and match in the owners manuals.holland_patrick wrote:http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
The only way to know for sure is to either always use the same brand and size on all 4 corners, or else go to a place like Tirerack.com and look up the revolutions/mile number they have for most of the tires they sell. Only trouble then is if you're buying a tire they don't have data for...
Here's a few pics, check out the ruler
QUOTE=holland_patrick "after a long search these are the only truck tire that will fit on a stock baja with any issues. General Grabber AT2's 215/65/16 they are very aggressive and add to the look of the truck"
