List of tire sizes that fit Transit

Just to minimize the numerous threads about the topic, and to have a one-stop answer center, let's contribute to this thread by keeping speculation, opinion (me), and lengthy discussions out.

If you have used a tire size successfully, list that tire size.
If the tire rubbed, say yes or no and keep description/story to just one sentence clarifying the situation if needed.
If you had to make modifications, keep the description/story to just one sentence; and do NOT provide a complete instruction manual.

It would be great if we could the thread make it look like a technical manual entry rather than a personal blog.

Love it! Think maybe you should change your moniker to "sarcastic Bill!" 😂
