13.5 wide on a 29 tall tire... Please don't do it. Hell I think anything bigger than a 12.5 up to a 35 is retarded.

Its whatver floats your boat? Ever thought about a body lift? You could more than likely fit a 33x13.50 on it. But just my .02 cents.

i would say go with the 15x10s and 31/11.50 swamper ltbs or either the 31/13.50 swamper sxs i think it would look better and you shouldn't have any clearance issues. I think the 29s are going to be too short

I have to agree. Don't do a 29x13.50

Your fine, no bubble of mine to bust on that one. I dont really see anything wrong with them. I mean, at the minimum you are replacing old bolts with new ones. I know my old ones where rusting away and there was not much left of my front bolts and I know replacing mine helped my truck.

Worthiness? Hate to break it to you, but everything you put into it isn't going to gain you anything back.. Only thing that may help is new tires, but even then you'll still lose some unless you get new tires for free.

why super swampers? they look cool but thats about it. the ride like crap and if you dont wanna lift the truck then it sounds like you wont even be doing enough off roading to even need a tire that aggressive. plus they dont really last long. why not go with a 31 mud terrain?

I wouldn't even go with a mud terrain if you don't plan on wheeling it (and if you are worried about a body lift ruining your resale value, wait until you get the truck scratched and dented from wheeling, because it WILL happen, whether you like it or not).

interco isnt a company you want to buy tires from unless you plan on doing some serious off roading or mudding. and that tire in such a small size really wouldnt look that good

swampers on a stock height truck FTL! with a lift they look ok, but as stated above, they ride bad, wear terribly on the road and look bad in a small size. if you dont plan on a lift stick with some nice all terrains or something. sounds like they might suit you better for what you are going to use your truck for.

well i had a neighbor who is a very good saxophone player, he got a full degree to whitworth and after that i asked him what he was gonna do, he simply said live in a bus, i told him he was crazy and i didnt beleive him. literaly the next day he came up with this bus. he got the volkswagen for free and put it on top for sleeping quarters. the woodwork inside is amzaing, beleive it or not, their father works at a yacht company. they set up scafolding (alot of it) and put tarps over that to paint in. i love the scheme. there is a better pic in my album. the real kicker is, it runs off of vegetable oil. they made the news in spokane. click on the link post below, you will scroll down about a little bit and you will see the video player, right under that is a search bar for the video. type in vegetable oil bus, it will be in the bottom left. sorry if this is confusing.
