    I had a set of these STA 9.00 x 16's on my 1951 Power Wagon. They balanced well and rolled smooth (at 45 - 50 mph max) but roared and whined to beat the band. I would certainly trust them to be good tires though. They showed no appreciable wear at 2 years of daily use (all low speed of course.)

    Yes they list them but appon a phone call im told 6-8 weeks not working for me. Also at 300 a tire there the most expensive I have found. This is my dads arguement I can get all for 37' mt-oz for 300 I already have wheels so i run them when i want and I can get some 285s for my 16" wheels for the times i dont. He is also pushing me to move to Grand junction and wheel with him much more in moab. That means i need more ground clearance to keep up with the lowrider he runs.

    There is a size 8.25R16, it is 34.0" tall and about 9.0" wide, they fit onto 5.5-6.5" wide rims. They are rare and expensive, I have a set of XZLs but they are going onto my Proffitt's HZJ79 when it gets to me.
    Continental also makes them.

    They might show up in Canada occaisonally, the Canadian Army uses them on Mercedes G290s.

    Kind of off topic, but I have always loved those old Jeep trucks like your dad has.

    I used 9.00 Michelin XZLs and spent a few years looking for them before I finally did. They would go 75 just fine but the are massive massive and heavy tire. I ran them on a land cruiser and they didn't fit right and I was worried about my axle shafts for the first time ever. I sold them shortly after. The best looking option is that Toyo in my opinion.

    thanks
