Replacement 9.50 X 16.5 tire options

I am looking for 5 new 9.50 X 16.5 tires, load range D or E, radial not bias ply. There seem to be very few options. I was hoping to find a tire around 32 inches in diameter. The tallest one I can find is the Firestone Transforce HT at about 30.8" tall.

No more choices from Goodyear or BFG?

Might try contacting our sponsor Home - Discount Tire Direct and see if they can help you out. Tell them fordforums.com referred you.

Re: Replacement 9.50 X 16.5 tire options

jwko -- Thanks for the info. I called Discount Tire Direct and they said they don't have any 16.5 tires as it is an "old size" that is uncommon. I guess that makes me an old size, too, as I still need them. I told them fordforums.com referred me.

So, I'll keep looking.

Re: Replacement 9.50 X 16.5 tire options

Why not purchase new steel wheels that will clear the brakes and have a TON of tire options?

Re: Replacement 9.50 X 16.5 tire options

I can't change the wheels as they are specially made for my truck for my railroad "hyrail" wheel kit. The custom wheels bring the width in on my Bronco so the tires ride on top of the two steel rails.

Ah OK. I found one option, the link should work. Compare Tire Search Results

Alright, the last link took you to a different place. So, I cut and pasted the image:

Re: Replacement 9.50 X 16.5 tire options

360ci- thanks for the link. I knew about the Firestone Transforce (see my initial post) as they are my choice if I can't find anything else slightly taller than 30.8.

There are very few options despite the fact there are still a lot of trucks on the road with 16.5 wheels.
