just seemed like you were implying that 35s are ok if you wheel.. etc, then you said it wears it out... now that i read it you said "I" and "my perspective", must have been out of it then

its such a hard decision, 35's are so nice to have and the look great, but 33's are so much safer and with my future plans they may look smalllllll.........

i think what he was trying to say is that now that HE has 35's and he's an avid wheeler, that he wouldn't go back down in size due to the oversizing benefits, but at the same time with the benefits come the consequences...

so basically all john was trying to say is, "for every action, there is the equal or opposite reaction."


i agree with what both of you are saying. Until Ford steps up and give the Ranger some wheel bearings that are built stronger than the Ford Focus wheel bearings, we're basically screwed!

Read enough of what john writes and it tends to follow this thought pattern.



Just my opinion but I would go with 35's. Although for your truck if you don't wheel 33's might be better. If you are going to go bigger than that for a Daily driver you might be better off with a bigger truck that will not wear as easily with big tires.

i think that's why i can decipher john so well on matters like this! i tend to think the same way...

and yeah, if you're a daily driver, stay with 33's...
