    Interco will have the bigger sizes available soon. They currently have the following sizes available:

    LT235/85R16
    LT225/85R16
    LT265/75R16
    LT285/75R16
    31x10.50R - 15LT

    Coming soon...

    33x12.5 in 15",16",16.5" & 17" rims
    34x12.5 in 15" & 16" rims
    35x12.5 in 15", 16" & 16.5" rims

    Hope this helps. It totally depends on your driving style. If you wheel alot and want a good tire, go with the Interco Super Swamper. If you spend some time on the highway, and some on the trails, Go with the Trxus M/T. The thing to remember, never buy BFG All Terrains if you are planning on hitting trails. These tires have flimsy sidewalls and puncture easy. The Trxus M/T has 8-10 ply tread and 4 ply sidewalls. Interco again has done their homework.
