I don't think they make that particular size, because I wanted those. I went with 285/75-16's.

If you want larger, I know BFG and I believe Nitto make 295/75-16s, but you gotta pay the price for them.

ok the reason that this comes about is i am looking for the best mpg outta my truck. with my goal of 400hp to the rear wheels and i was told to go with a taller narrower tire since i am running 4.10's, i am currently running 315/75-s16's and i personally like the larger size tires much better than a smaller size.
