I've been thinking of getting exactly the same tires as your just for a while now because we only have a few options when it comes to all terrain tires. I just want to ask about your tire size. Is it 215/70r16's? I really want to go with 225/70r16's but I've never seen anyone put that size on their Trax. Let me know. Thanks!
Im running 225/70/16 at’s on stock wheels. looks grt. biggest tire u can mount without wheel spacers due to strut spring perch. I was running 215/70/16’s prior and like them better. The bigger 225’s effect the shift points in the auto trans too much. Barely gets into 6th gear.

The tire size, Cooper Discoverer A/T3 215-70-R60 . The gas mileage did drop 2 mpg highway and 4 to 6 city. This is the second winter for them and they go great. My Trax is frontwheel drive and it takes me all kinds of crazy places. Much better than the factory highway tires. In this time they have hardly worn any noticeable depth at all. I love them.
edit, they ( Cooper Tires ) have been on my Trax 2 years, have put about 25,000 miles on them and they are wearing very well. You cant really tell they've been driven that much. I rotate with every oil change alternating front to rear and front to rear X rotations. I also maintain the pressures between 32 / 35 psi normal air. The Trax is so lite sometime you have to be careful on wet roads or emergency ( panic ) braking, Sometimes a rear wheel will unload and start to lock up. Ats funny you get this loud tire squall from this little car. You have to remember most AT tires out there are load rated for heavier vehicles. I find in snow it will ride on top instead of digging in. Still its all about driving style.

Hey folks, im new to the forum. been reading alot about the trax. Its such a fun little suv. i put some bf goodrich ko2 offroad tires on it looks pretty cool huh? just have to go up one size and it fits just fine. put them on factory rims. I get comments all the time from people where i work :) So just in case anyone is wanting to do this it looks great go for it!
hey Brian, I love the look of your BFG‘s on your Trax. I had the thought of doing something similar myself wasn’t set on BFG or any tire for that matter. Just curious I Imagine they are a bit noisy, but how do they ride? With the Trax being all wheel drive it’s **** awesome in the rain was just curious if switching to an off-road tire affected how How good the vehicle handled in wet conditions obviously it’s gonna be better in snow or mud. My main concern is losing the excellent traction in wet conditions. Any further input would be appreciated.
