You didn't say what size at3's you got.

My mistake it's in the title.

I test fitted 225/75r16's on my 09 SH XT. No lift - No chance, rubbed hard ont the rear, just clear the front but probably wouldn't run them just to be safe. I plan on buying 225/70r16's when I build my lift.

225/70r16 will still prob require you to trim the plastic a bit in the rear guard. some people find the tyres touch where those are in the rear guard at full droop of the suspension. some don't depends on the tyres i guess.

Those are great looking tires though. Too bad they rub too much.

I thank you kindly! I took it to the local mud hole and they worked tons better than the Continentals of course. My neighbor said now it looks like a "real SUV." When I get the bull horns on the front, then my own Texas "Special Appearance Package" will be complete.

The front tire rubbed once when I had the wheel turned and jumped the curb going 10 mph, but they are not rubbing at all under normal driving conditions.

Yea they aren't a bad tyre from what I hear but unfortunately they are no longer available which is probably why they were at the dump. 2 near new, 2 bald, this is one of the near new ones, it has some horrendous scalloping wear so the previous owner probably fitted a new set of 4 and these went to the tip.
