Tyre choice for 2” lowered 90 on 16 inch boosts

Hi All

Any ideas on the best size tyre for 16 inch boosts on a 2” lowered
Defender 90 tdi?

Ultimately want a set of 18” with the 265 65 18 set up (as per wanted add) but can’t find much info on
Suitable tyre sizes for the 16”. Currently have 235 70 16 BF AT as a temp setup
And they look Rolling with laughter

Want to stick with BF AT’s not sure if the 265 75 16 might be a little tight?

Cheers

The stock size is 235/85 which is, near as makes no odds, the same diameter as 265/75 but obviously narrower.

Hi

Ok, so except width the

265/65/18
235/85/16
265/75/16

Are all roughly the same circumference and all should be fine?

Sorry for all the questions just want to make sure I don’t end up with an issue.

Cheers
