wow makin me feel small here. Im still runnin 255/70/16's (30x9). They are new last July though, and money is going elsewhere now though. Eventually I will get 32's and some black rims. I have the BAJAs right now, and I like them, but they are chrome and two of them has some real bad curb rash and the chrome is all peelin and it just kills me. Oh well, prolly gonna get exhaust and some other mods before rims and tires.

my dad has wore out a few pairs of cooper st and they have lasted the most out of any other tire he has owned. i hear alot of good on bfg, but also alot of bad, idk dude, its your choice, i personally dont think weight in the wheels is that big of a deal. im only goin to be driving to school and back.

weight plays a large factor in acceleration and MPG trust me, more than you think

i had steelies on my ranger and went to aluminum wheels and noticed a big difference in accel saving 13lbs per rim/tire

same with my superduty, i went from 16.5x12 steelies with swampers to aluminum 16x10 and a kevlar belted tire, i saved about 50lbs per tire and rim...biig difference

BFGs have been used by more people than any other tire you will probably be hearing about so there will be more bad reviews, but also more good reviews. I've run several different sizes and types of bfg muds and a/ts and can say they last a very long time and are very decent on street and offroad all around not to mention they look great and are one of the best priced for what you get.

i git bigger tires just fine...no rubbing!

I fit bigger tires just fine....my 94' was supposed to have 225/70R14 road tires i think.... I ran 265/75R15 All Terrain tires on my 2Wd just fine...according to redrock4x4.com tire converter, the 265/75R15 is the equivilent of a 30.6x10.4/15 tire....and i prolly could went up one size just fine...btw mine had coil springs too.....
