I know the Toyo's will rub so rule those out. Not sure about the Mud Countrys or Mud Grapplers.

i figured they would, look pretty aggressive on the sidewall. i think theyre crazy expensive anyways. im debating on the sizes bc idk im for sure gonna lift it and if i dont i dont wanna have the stuffed look and i wanna be able to eventually get AM rims. but if i get a smaller tire like the 33x12.50 i dont wanna have to get a bigger tire later if i lift it and am affraid of regretting not goin bigger. its a tough descision when your spendin this kind of money for somethin your pretty well stuck with

Where ever your getting your prices from is a ripoff. I payed 1280 for mine to my house from Discount Tire. They were even cheaper in store but I didn't know that at the time lol.

hellz yea. i got em installed today and they are awesome. not very loud for an MT, they look great, were a decent price, and are agressive as hell. the only downside is that they rub the frame at full lock and gas milage is **** bc of the bigger tire. ive drove 80 miles on a quarter tank and its only like a 25 gallon tank.

It is a 30 gallon tank, and you haven't recalibrated the speedometer/odometer so you have traveled further than you think. Plus you can't gauge mileage by looking at just the gauge.
But no doubt it is worse than it was. Where are the pictures?

i havent been home. lol. ill get em today after i wash this beast. i think its like a 25 gallon bc the fuel light was on thursdays and when i filled up it was only like 23 gallons. how do i calibrate the speedo and how much will it cost? i havnt noticed much power loss either, i mean i have to be a little more aggressive on the throttle but rpms once at speed are about the same
