Need to edit this post. I posted that I installed a 225 BFG accidentally in the first line. This is not correct, it is a 215 as I posted throughout the rest of my posts.I put a set of 15x5 aluminum trailer wheels with as set of 225 BFG Mud Terrains on my gator last summer (i believe, might have been two summers now?) Love the ride. Only think I don't like is the look. The 215 on the 15x5 rim is super skinny and tend to cut ruts in mud. It would be a much better fit for a 205 i believe.
Are all of tires 8 ply ?Hello again,
I think I'm almost there with my WHEEL and TIRE selection. I've posted my choices below and would like your opinion on the tires I've selected. If you think there are better tires out there for me to consider, let me know. Here is my information:

Thanks for your patience with me on this Gator purchase.
Ditto with CaptSeabee’s comments, I would add metal valve stems and have the tires/wheels balanced.I like the 225s over my 205s. Looks like a nice setup although I'm more impressed you're going with the same rims I have. Tire pressure which is normal for a jeep will likely be a touch too stiff for a gator. I run mine at 30. Don't forget the dust caps and the new lug bolts.
Captseabee,Mine are 27.5 AND I have the steel brush guards which are more intrusive than fender guards as you saw in my picture. They should be fine for fit on the rim and the Gator. Probably the only difference is mine are Les Schwab offerings which I've destroyed two which were under their warranty and replaced free of charge. It was nail in sidewall type stuff.
