Is anyone here running a 235/85-16 tire? I've come across several lifted Ford Transits that run that size tire. It's about the same width as the 225/75-16 but about the same diameter as a 265/75-16. The specs show that it wold probably use the stock rim.

You will have to have a lift and/or pretty big modification to wheel wells for those to work. 235/85/16 is almost 2.5" larger in diameter, and almost a 1/2 inch larger in width. The width might work without modification actually, as several people around here to run 245s.. I think the fronts rub on full suspension compression with 245s. The diameter will be the biggest obstacle; the people running 245/75/16 (a little over 1" larger than stock in diameter) are already maxed out with some reporting rubbing on the rears.
