Want Bigger Tires

Alright yea i know this is most likely the 5 millions time someones ask this but what tie size should i go for i have the Drop Shackles in the rear and the t-bar crank in the front...I have Stock 16's what size tire should i go for 32's would that still allow a good deal of flex with out rubbing? And wheres a good site to get tires at i normally go to Tirerack.com.

Thanks

A 32x11.50x16 would be a little bigger and actually a 32" tire. A 265 is just over a 31 1/2 tire, not much smaller...

No it won't mess w/the tranny. With the crank and shackles 265's will look good. Tire rack is a good place also try your local discount tire store.

You can go up to a 285 if you really wanted to, its all in what your going to do...wheel, or just use it as a DD....


Wheel = 265's No Rubbing
DD = 285's Very minor rub @ full lock

I got my tires from 4wheelparts.com. Great price and I didn't have any shipping when I bought the either.
