tire choice.......

well i have a bit of a pickle.......in the near future (spring) i will be putting in an 8.8 and going spring ove so my 32's are gonna be small.I was gonna run them and buy a set of cheap at for street driving and sace the cash to get boggers. But i found someone selling 34 1050's ltbs in good shape with a little rock rash fpr 400 bucks a set of 5 and someone to buy my tires for 450

the question is should i buy these 34 1050's and run them even though they are supposed to have a rough ride being bias ply or should i just run the 32's and wait to get a set of at's and then get boggers which will cost me close to 1200 for tires and rims plus the cost of all terrain and rims what do you think.......

you cant pass that deal up. 32's will be way to small with that type of lift. get 'em and try them out. if you dont like the ride sell them. you should at least be able to get your money back if not more.

Bias ply tires can run almost as smooth as radials, once they are warmed up. On cold days, you will get flat spots on the bottom that will thump for the first little bit as you go down the road (maybe 2 minutes or less) and then they will warm up and be round again.
