Which Tire?

I own a 1992 Ford Bronco and I'm looking for mud tires. Would 235x75r15 work, or should I go all out with 33x12.5r15?

I want to just play the n00b card and tell you to search and stuff. But man I love FSB's... So I'll play nice-ish.

The tire sizes you have listed are very different, the 235 being roughly 29" tall, and the 33 being well... 33". Google metric to inches tire size converter or something to that effect. Seriously, please google it before asking more questions like this here, look around the posts here, its closer to people building suspensions in their garage and asking about suspension geometry then asking about what size tires to run on a particular vehicle.

You can fit 33's on a stock bronco with minimal rubbing on the front end, usually on the sway bar and the TTB beam. Many many many people have run 33's on a FSB without issue.

Also, post pics

Whichever size you decide to go with you need to get some Thornbirds. Hands down the best mud tire ever made... Anything less and you might as well start practicing sucking dicks in truck stops because you'll be hitch-hiking home after getting stuck.

Go with 35's and trim a little bit. Then get 4.88's and lockers.
