Wow,

Mines a 2wd 4-cylinder regular cab version with a camper-shell....
I'm running on 225/70R15 Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires on OE wheels... roughly the same size & weight as a typical 235/70R15 highway/radial tire.

Traction, control, and comfort is great on this tire type & its dimension... I've survived many potholes in general...
During the winter months, I was able to keep it "pointing-straight" in snow squalls etc...

I have noticed a lack of acceleration and slightly more fuel consumption... due to the additional rolling-mass... Where, I have to "kick-it" or "hammer-down" to keep up with highway traffic...
For me it's worth the compromise versus trying to survive on the punny [and down-right scary at times] OE size 205/75R15s

Plus you will want to upgrade your shocks to accommodate the extra weight... I went with Gabriel Ultra version shocks front & rear. I'm using Energy-Suspension/Prothene brands polyurethane bushings/end-links for the front & rear sway bars as well.


Something you might want to consider as well...
