Well I ended up buying a new set of Goodyear marathons. The only thing is I switched from 235/85/16 to 235 /80 15.

After I get them installed I'm ready

So you went with both tires and wheels, alloy wheels with metal valve stems?

You are planning on using the stock wheels with the new tires you got?

Unless there is a typo you have 16 inch now and you bought 15 inch tires.

15 inch tires on 16 inch wheels will not work out well.

Another typo ? or ???

LT235/80R16 have a lower load capacity than LT235/85R16 unless you go up in Load Range such as LR-D to LR-E

COuld you please clarify by providing the complete size info of before & after?

Note by "Complete": I mean letter prefix + numeric dimensions + Load Range

Just too many variations possible for this information to be of help to others if we have to guess.

Thanks in advance
