I think the 12.50's would look fine with full width axles. My thing with anything wider is that they are going to make you wander all over the road and be a ***** to balance.

35x12.5 is the best combo anything bigger with 12.5 is too skinny in my book.

it likes to wonder as it is, i dont really like them for the width more the tread pattern and how well everyone say they work. but i would have to go to 17s or 18s to get that 12.5 width in the grappler

jesus, haha

well MTZs are the only one on the list i have personally used, but i have seen MTRs and Nittos on the same terrain and the nittos did much better, granted they were 32" mtrs with 20k miles, and 35x1450 nittos with 1500 miles

i like the MTRs but tehy work the best when you take a bunch of pressure out of them. run like 10psi... I run 32psi on the road.

mud grapplers

everyone is basing their choices on looks and other things, but out of those three tires, the mud grappler will be the better onroad driving tire. they spin the best and most true out of those. you pay for the nitto name, as well as a nice tire. as well as toyos, and sometime bfg puts out good sets of tires. mickey thompson is consistent as well.

My vote is for the MTR's. Mainly because they are biggest and not really wide and I want some in a smaller size.

Been there with the F-250 after going out on the beach. Let me tell you 15 psi plus 8K lbs making turns will make it very eerie.

Not stealing the thread, but i'm in the market for new tires plus rims before winter for the PSD. Lookin at basically what you are zach. Can't decide rims though and rim size.

Hey take it easy on my little mt/rs they still have some growing up to do, and I didn't reverse once in the playground unlike someone with mud grapplers but I won't name names haha

But I would pick the grapplers because they just look [email protected] and work [email protected], oh yeah did I mention the grapplers are [email protected]
