I guess I answered this question

1) they're not swampers

2) your hard as hell to understand

this reminds me of the post, I think on here, where someone pointed out a tacoma with balloon tires....the sidewalls were wider than the tread. Unfortuantely I can't seem to search for the post or google the image. Looked really freak'n retarded, but to each their own I guess. Those rims are going to be .75 inches wider than the width of the tire (12.5 inches). The sidewalls are going to enjoy the volcanic rock and soils of hawaii.

this is just stupid. i'll come out and say it.



the ENTIRE face of the wheel is exposed, one bump against anything and its toast.

this is one "for sure" thing. your truck is just a street queen. with that set up its useless for any off-roading.

I stand corrected then.......1.25 inch, that's per side of the tread.

wow, those pics are with a 12.5" inch wide tire on a 12" rim, I can only imagine what an 11.5" wide tire on a 14" rim is going to be like... Honestly I wouldn't trust it on the street to hold a bead, never mind airing down or offroading. I know people that run street tires with a 1" high super stiff sidewall sretched out on rims at 50PSI and they even loose beads, I can only imagine what those large flexy soft sidewalls are gonna do stretched out like they will be... good luck to you.

If you can air down a max of 1-2 pounds, why even waste your time?? That will buy you nothing!!!

Weld wheels are very high quality. That is why they cost so much damn money!!! I mean, they started out in drag racing, so i think they know a thing or two about making a good wheel!!!!! now you might say they where made for to be lookers, and i might agree, but they sure as heck could take the beating of offroading!!!

those wheels don't look like 14" wheels to me either....my brother has a set of 14" wheels on his '79 Ford and they are deeper than that...

loose the 14" wheels and get 10" wheels.....unless you are trying to float your truck across the Pacific to California...




i bet you have some serious ball joint problems...
