Also "your" is a completely different word and holds different meaning than "you're". Is that what you meant?
You've never been here (Hawaii) hence you've never wheeled out here, don't understand the language (which you criticized) or the culture so my advice to you is to shut the hell up. And yep, guys run wide wheels in sand without airing down. I've never seen anyone with his setup yet get stuck in sand (wide rims and stretched tires) I've also never seen em lose a bead. I've been wheeling for almost 20 years now and never seen anyone lose a wide wheel bead in sand (probably because it allows the tire to float instead of dig) BTW, this isn't the kind of sand that you may have wheeled in on the mainland. It is of a very fine grain. Look at a sandrail. Have you ever seen the rims on the back of a sand rail (maybe they can give you some idea).
hmmmmm


how the hell do you know i've never been to Hawaii? yea thought so

i dont have the 5r55e.. and i found out you couldn't do a 203/205... WHY THE **** DO YOU THINK ITS NOT IN THERE ANY MORE?!

wtf are you talking about having trouble wheelin on dirt roads dip ****? where did that **** come from? if you've been wheelin for 20 years and not seen a tire lose the bead you must be the one on dirt roads...

the "language" of your culture is the same **** that is here with "gangstas" or w/e you wanna call them. and why should i shut up? wtf are you gonna do?


yes i have seen the back tires on sand rails, have YOU seen the tires/wheel on the back of a rail? because all the rails i saw.. the sidewall stuck out beyond the wheel, or it was about even.. not an 11.5" tire on a 14" wheel! and im not arguing that a wide wheel/tire is bad for sand, a tire thats 2.5" narrower than the wheel is what we're saying...

here have a few pics

god damn.. your stupid

have u never seen a CO2 tank? you CAN run a locker off it dumbass, there's even a section of the regulator marked for LOCKERS. AND you can run it off a little 5-7 gallon air tank, my friend did it.. its actually a damn good idea, bypass all the switches, solenoids, wires and fuses to limit the **** that can break
and that truck is pretty stupid, it looks like a ****ing mall crawler. and yes i hit a pole.. but it wasnt at walmart, get your damn facts straight, atleast i do **** with my truck unlike most people who own a lifted truck on muds.



is anyone else with me that he talks like a 12 year old gangsta?
anyways... wtf is your dumb *** problem? just shut up, crawl into a little dark hole and die..

I wanted to see the truck but because most of you morons feel you need to bash him he probably wont post it.

If the tire shop mounts it it will be safe for street driving, some of you guys worry WAY too much about someone elses ride.

bottom line is that its your vehicle and you do what you want, if it doesnt work out, its your wallet and you will adjust accordingly if needed.

The funny thing is I've seen similar posts on tacoma forums (particularly TTORA) and virtually the same thing happens on there as has happened here. Lots of pointing and laughing, and sadly rightfully so!

If I was an insurance company, nevermind not insuring someone that lifts a truck. I wouldn't insure someone with tires mounted like ballons. That's about as bad as the firestone exploding tires!

I'm pretty much in agreement with Gildo on this one. I'd like to see the pictures and if you had some action shots on the sand that would be awesome.

If you think it will work, it's worth a shot. I'd like to see it just simply for a knowledge standpoint.

The reason why people install compressors in their trucks is that they can also use air tools for trail fixes, pop beads back on tires, fix flats and run their air lockers. I can't see why anybody would bypass an on-board air system and use a tank (but hey the do it Rubeville so that must be the way to do it! )
i would love to have OBA is a back up... but a CO2 tank pushes air faster.and you can run tools, air up tires, fix a bead yada yada...
