So I've finally decided to put the A/T Ss :biggrin: on my '01 and was going to just go with the stock 205/70/15 size. My local Discount Tire guy says that it looks like Yoko may not be producing them anymore though. Out of all the warehouses, only one has any stock of this size. All the places he checked have the 215/70/15s. I don't mind the slightly taller and wider tire but I just wanted to double check to see if anyone is running them and if they're having any issues. I have searched but when it comes to the Geolanders, it looks like everyone is running them on 16" rims. Any insight will be greatly appreciated before I plunk down my $$$.

Thanks,

Bill

I've got those in 225/70 15's on my 01 and they are just fine,even before the lift.
(biggest tire that will fit under the spring perches though)

Thanks Frogstar. I assume your NA, do you feel like you're down on power because of the taller, heavier tire? Any noticeable decrease in mileage? This is my DD and I'm kind of used to getting 20mph around town!
