Beaten into the Ground Question:havin issue fndng goodata on tire ops

What options are there for large tires on a Level8 Strike 5 in 16" - 8.5 - 4.25 BS aftermarket wheel?
I have Cooper STT 315/75r16s and LOVE them so much that I have been planning on going with the 325/80r16s as this coming Springs replacement set. But, I just confirmed with a Cooper rep they no longer make that size and thus my larger tire options have dwindled.

I have 3" Synergy Stage 1.5 lift and currently could run the STT 37"x12.50.17"s room wise with my lift and travel room/shocks ( i have the shock relocation kit from Synergy) but I have these darn 16" rims and there isnt an option to go to diff size; plus, I really ,actually, like the 16" wheel ( except for tire options) as I am in the granite of Tennessee quite often and use the old "poor mans beadlock" of 8-10psi in a 15 or 16 inch tire, and it works really well for where I wheel. I like the extra rubber height . I have found myself actually saying ," if I had slightly larger diameter tires I could make it up that without scraping ______ ( fill in the blank with something under your rig)

All that being said, I do not need the pundits that typically state" trade your 16s for 17s " because these level8's are light (21lbs a wheel I believe) and strong for a cheaper alloy rim.
I also like the look .
So, I want bigger than a 315/75r16 but stick with a 16" wheel with it's 4.25" BS and 8inch width.
Could BFG KM2s in 345/75r16 fit on this tire? They supposedly only weigh 77lbs per?
I know quadratec is kinda lame but why do I see them list a size chart for the MT TTC Radial in 37"x13.00x16" ? I do not see that size on Mickey Thompson's web site so maybe the typical Quadratec typo?

It looks to me like I have the Interco Irok ND( not too keen on these; they look skinny) , Maxxis CreepyCrawler in a 35" or 37" for 16LTs ( I know they wear on street poorly - I only DD 22miles a day round trip and rotate every 2000 miles- i am not too worried)

Anyone got any other solutions for a larger tire for a 16" AFTERMARKET wheel than those?

Maybe I will just stick with the 35"s and get PBR XOR s in that size but sure would like to go larger when I upgrade. I just cant buy rims as well. Thanks and sorry so much rambling. I just saw this post << https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2806338&postcount=16 >> and wonder if those 345/75r16 BFGs would fit on my 8" width rims.....and also what you JKOwners consider as available options matters ......

re: This Thread

I just found this--->

https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showpo...74&postcount=2

which answers many of my questions .
It seems that the original post from JK Vick clearly states that the 345/75r16's were mounted on 16"x8s so I think I have found my tires.
Unless I can afford some Trepadors or the MT version of the Falken Wildpeaks that are supposedly arriving soon will be offered in a 16" wheel option, I will be going with the fat @ssed BFG KM2s
