Bummer that the 235 tires didn't work out, but your 245's look great (And that custom rack is awesome!). I went with the 245/70's AT3's from Cooper to get something a little beefier, but still close to the same size.I thought that I would post some updated thoughts about my tire choice.
I did get all of the wheel wells cut and the plastics back on and I really like the look!
But...now having put about 3000 miles on the big tires ( 235/85R16 ), I found that the van struggled to push them, especially in the mountains and while towing trailers. I found that I had to use the “manual “ shifting mode to drive the van just to help it shift, otherwise it was a slug. My fuel economy was anywhere between 15-18 and the best I saw was 19MPG in my diesel.
Yesterday I switched back to 245/75R16 and the van is much happier! I could immediately tell a difference and when on a 400 mile trip and was averaging 22MPG.
The tires are Hankook Dynapro A/T
