I had trouble finding 16.5 also. I wasn's looking for 35s but i had luck with ground hawg radials. They ran about 47,000 under a 97 f-350. They might have them in 35 but I think they will be wide ones (14.50). Good luck.

Try a small local shop. My brother runs 16.5's and he only found one place to get them, a local goodyear tire shop.

Sounds like time to step up to a 17" or 18" wheel and go for the best tire on the market... TOYO MT'S!!!

you can find 37 12.50 16.5 goodyear MT HMWWV (hummer) military tires at surplus stores and on the internet for days. 35s are very rare. Might mb time to upgrade to a different size wheel with more tire options.

I run the Parnelli Jones tires. 36x14.5-16.5 A little wider than what you've got but they've lasted well so far. They are pricey though. Also as posted above, the Denman Ground Hawg's seem to last.
