tall narrow tires avail ??

Am currently running goodyear mtr 35x12.5x15's love them on soft material but for the rocky, mtn trails i believe i need a narrower tire[seems like most jeep trails are narrower than the track width of my 35x12.5's], is there anything avail in the 33-35 inch range that is narrower? When i look at the tire charts it seems everything 35 inchs tall is 12 inches wide. Would going to a 16 or 17 inch rim be an option? thanks James

super swamper makes a LTB in 34x10.50-15LT


the tread is actually 9.25" wide..

a few guys in our jeep club seem to really like them, and I may go with a set when my baha claws are in need of replacment.

There are a couple of companies that make 33's that are narrower than 12, but you will be very hard pressed to find a 35 or larger that is narrower than 12.5". If you need a narrower track width, you could look at a Jeep with less backspacing to tuck your tires closer to the frame, but you will run into rubbing issues pretty quick going that route. The other option is to stop using ATV trails... Good luck on your search, and let us know what you find!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

yea its hard to find a 35" or larger tire thats not narrower than 12.5"...the biggest tire i've seen thats under 12.5" is the swamper that is mentioned above...and like jeeperman said u could use narrower rims that dont have as much backspacing but u could rub...but i guess u could always cut some sheetmetal lol
