Unless you are 4x4 I wouldn't worry too much about MTs, if you ever get into any sand, you'll sink quicker than the Titanic... I'd go with a A/T if you were 2wd...

i was thinking about getting 32x11.5's, but i dont really wanna crank the t-bars, and was worrying about rubbing without doing that. But if they wouldnt rub then i prob would get 32's.

Yeah but you are 4X4 and I believe that he is not.........

In any event, I like those wheels allot, and I would get them, I have seen them on discount tires web site and have often thought they would look good with 31 or 32's on my truck..... Good choice!

thanks for the pictures, i saw some in 17, and really liked them, but what size tire would be close to the same as a 31x10.5 on 17 inch rim.

So would BFG A/T 32's fit on the 15x8 rim up top on my '00 4x4? Anyone want to do a photoshop by chance?
