Radial Tires on a M151A2

Unread post by Litz » November 21st, 2022, 9:53 pm

Hello,
I tried several searches of the Forum, but I am not having much luck finding specific details on Radial/tubless tires.

I would appreciate any information from those that have mounted radial tires on the originl M151A2 wheels. I am hoping to to get a set of radials with good overall traction and don't rub due to height or when turning the front wheels. (Tire brand, model and size)

Thanks for any information you can share on successful radial tires.

Robin

size 216/85R-16. Brand is basically up to you. I like the BFG AT's. As long as the rims are in good condition and not rusted yo will have no problems running the tubeless tires. There are many on here that do, Much better road manners then the original military tires.

And I just noticed I typed that wrong, It should be 215, not 216. OOP's.
