I'm getting the itch for new tires....

Yeah hasnt even been a year yet, but I want to find another set of tires.

Preferably 42" Iroks or 42" Pitbull Rockers. on 17" wheels. Bias ply.

Any other ideas for tires? Open for suggestions.

These probably wont go on until after the 5.4L.

Looking for used or new. So if you spot a deal post it up!

Everyone on Pirate is raving about the Pitbulls. Relatively new tire, so you might as well do something different. Everyone and their mom has 42 Iroks. 42's are going to look damn good!

It just seems that they are a very popular tire. Not that that is a bad thing, but your not known for doing something everyone else has. I guess maybe it depends on where you live, but even up here, there are alot of Iroks.

I guess that 17 inch rim kinda limits your selection

for 42s there are not many options, there are more 17s available in 40s but i just wanted to go as big as i could. a 42 is probably too big because that would only give me a half inch of clearance per side. honestly it doesnt matter 40 or 42. I could run a 16.5" rim but idk. I'm gonna buy another set of wheels for these tires.
