Who still makes 9.00-16 tires?

I'm looking for a set of 9.00-16 tires for my tow rig and I can't seem to find many mfg's that are still making them? Anyone know whats still being made in a 9.00-16, I'm not too picky on the tread pattern, just want this size (or a new metric equivalent).

Thanks in advance.

tem 66178
Model 180481
UPC Code 741317030877


900-16LT D GRIP SPUR


An aggressive, deep tread for maximum traction for all wheel positions on light trucks.

Special rubber blending and compounding produce a tough, dense tread that gives excellent mileage, resists cuts and road hazards.

Extra-deep chevron tread (cleated tread) puts traction packed grip on the ground.

Aggressive, self-cleaning tread design for excellent traction in mud, snow or soft soil.

Continuous center riding ribs for a smooth ride and increased lateral stability.

Sub-treads help reduce shoulder wear.

Nylon cord body plies and belted construction.

Cut-resistant sidewall compound for rugged off-the-road service.

Outstanding all-terrain traction.

Death or serious injury may result from tire failure due to under-inflation/overloading. Follow owner's manual or tire placard in vehicle. Explosion of tire/rim assembly may result from improper mounting. Follow RMA installation safety procedures for mounting and inflating tire. Tire and rim must match in size. Rim parts must match by manufacturer's design. Clean rim; lubricate rim and beads. Do not exceed the maximum recommended pressure to seat beads on rim. Use remote control inflation equipment and inflation cage.

Note: For hump type safety rims, never inflate above 40 PSI to seat beads. Only specially trained persons should mount tires. Do not mix different tire sizes or construction without following RMA recommendations.

Workmanship and materials: Free replacement first 2/32 tread wear. Pro-rated first 2/32 tread wear to tread wear indicators (2/32). Ride disturbance not adjustable beyond first 1/32.

Yeah, they are about 35x9-16's.

Anything else other than the Co op grip Spurs, I like that tire but I'm looking for somethign a bit less agressive for the tow rig.

Nope, hadn't thought of that yet. I like the Xl's alot, I've only ever seen two sets of 9.00-16 XL's in my whole life though, they seem pretty rare.

Sorry, i meant 255/85/16.

The last 900-16 i measured was 34.something.



Are you asking about the 900-16 because you want that actaul size? Do you want bias tires on your tow rig? Are you trying to do some kind of old school tow rig build up type deal? Or do you just want a skinny 35?

I have ran three or four sets of those back in the day, Best I got was 18-20K. Worked GREAT offroad!

Expedition Exchange in LA had 9.00x16 Michelin XZLs a while back, but their website says they're out of stock right now.

A guy over in north eastern TN is selling some (I see you are in VA). Near Johnson City. He is GubNi on the local boards (like NC4x4.com). I won't post his number on the board, but I will PM it to you.

DP

edit: oops, thinking 1100-16. Still might be worth a phone call.

I have had two sets myself, last time I got a set (2 years ago) the tire shop had probably 100+ so it depends on location.

Basically I just want a tall skinny tire, in the 34-36" range, and I knew the 900-16 fit the bill. I would perfer radials, but honestly bias ply doesn't bother me (our C60 has had bias ply tires for the past 31 years, it hauls fine). And yes on the old school tow rig theme, I like tall skinnys on all my rigs to be honest (running Q78's on my wheeling rig).

I do like those for a tow rig, I might look into those.

I have 8.25R16 Mich's on one of my trucks. New, they measured a touch under 34" tall mounted on 6.5" rims.
Any 9.00 Mich's I've measured turn out at around 36"
