  • Wheels / Tires: Best radial match for 6.50-16 LT tire is...?

    Hi again Guys,

    What is the 'best'/ recommended radial tire size match for a 6.50 - 16 LT tire? I understand that changing to a radial tire will help smooth out the ride. I've already replaced the shocks and some front end parts. Thanks for your replies.

    Hi Mark.
    I think the size of a 6.50x16 is 6.5" width and 80% aspect ratio of 5.2"giving an overall diameter of 26.4". The metric size would be 165/80x16. I don't know if you can get them but 175/75/16 may be a better choice? I can't help but think a radial will have a smaller looking sidewall than an old crossply??? I'm not a tyre expert so hopefully someone else will be around to help
    The funniest thing about this signature is by the time you realise it says nothing important, it's too late to stop reading it.

      I put 195/75/16s on my Champ truck. They are just right. Fit right on my original rims.
