Nice.

I was thinking about 33/12.50's, but went with 32/11.50's instead.

thanks for the comments

I was going to stick with 32's but was able to get the 33's w/ free replacement for $700 ~$100 less than the 32's at discount tire the wheels were $100 from a local jeeper that had tires mounted but never used them

and the carrier is the USS LEXINGTON Museum http://www.usslexington.com/

I'd like to know the same. Also what is your backspacing and do your tires stick out past the fenders at all?

The wheels have 4" of backspacing. They only rub the inner fender on full lock turns. At most I think they stick out of the fenders maybe 2". When flexed of course they rub all over. The rear tires rub the fender lip when fully stuffed. I think I may have even cracked my fenders when trying to fully flex it. I really dont like the look of bodylifts and as for a tbar crank Im looking to get some heaver tbars first. Im not too concerned about flexing as most of my offroading is done on the beach or lightly rutted service roads to access fishing holes.
