Hi, Just bought a 96 Tracker mainly for trailing. I'm looking for new tires and was wondering if someone could help me with sizes. I know 205/75/15 is factory but what else would work for off road and street. Thanks for your help, specific sizes will really help me find what I'm looking for on craigslist.

235-245 and depending on width-you should be good for on/off road.
now for the second # r75 is usually stock normal and you should not have any trouble.
if you want a wider tire you get R70, R65, I wouldn't go any further.
If you get 235R70/16 this should work- you might have some scrubbing on sharp turns or turning into an entrance with a sharp incline. Also depends on tread style. But this is what you have to put up with if you want a better looking ride. And better clearance- but it will turn your tracker from Bad to bad ass! I have heard that fairly aggressive 31s will fit nicely, that's what i heard- take it for what its worth. I also remember what the #s on the tire stand for. 235/70/15, the 235 is how tall the tire is and the 70 means -70% of 235 is the width. I may have gotten it backwards: Also remember "white walls on the inside, and raised white letters mount out, doesn't help with slip streaming but makes it look good".
Now if you can translate this, you are way ahead me (I couldnt understand it) (good Luck and happy times)

a 225/70/15 will fit you stock wheels,& give you a wider footprint. they wont scrub. i have tese on my 1993 4x4 . also give you alot of tires to choose from
