|Triple88a||I donno man, For me the "tracks" on the road annoy me a lot. I'm not talking a little tiny curve, i'm talking about 3" deep track on some places.|

my 12.5'' tires help me out sometimes.. when im driving my dads truck with 10.5'' tires, i seem to hit potholes a lot more.. the little bit wider tire makes it feel like i drive over the potholes instead of hitting them..
my dads truck even has coilovers =p
but in the winter they suck because they are wider.. same as in the rain..

For roads, 12.5s are pretty tough. Here in chicago many roads curve because of the weight of the vehicles pushed them down so they end up wavy as in when you're driving thhere are "tracks" into the road. My 12.5s have hard time with that since it pulls and pushes them so you have to be exactly in the center of the "track".

I'll take the advice and stick with 12.5

|Jerry Bransford||One thing to keep in mind about a tire that wide is hydroplaning when the roads are covered in water from rain. I personally wouldn't even consider that wide of a tire if it's driven on the street too. Think of a tire that wide as a really good water ski when on a wet paved road.|

|Triple88a||Not super swampers unless you're lucky.. they are more of an egg shaped.|

|MoA||uh.. trip.. arent tires round?|
|05-07-2008 01:37 AM|
|Triple88a||Doesnt super swamper make any kind and size of tire but the round kind? I think the claws were also available around that width.|

heh.. my tires stick out like 2'' on each side and cops havent said nething yet..
i have had a cop say something to me about my doors being off.. but it was because i didnt have a seatbelt on.. and it was more of a smart@$$ comment than it was anything else..
ive had a cop stop me one time and tell me he liked my jeep =p

Anybody know if there is a site or page out there that summarizes the various laws in the different states? I know here in TX it is hard to find the info...would be invaluable if a centralized summary sheet were generated.

|nicolas-eric||IMO 33x14.5 looks funny because they are too wide.|
|05-07-2008 12:29 AM|
|AzTJ||I know that Pit-Bull Tires make a 33x13.5... and a 35x14.5... but never heard of a 33x14.5.|

Also out of curiosity, what are the rules up there for flare coverage? (recently spoke w/ a policeman here in TX and he said we only have to have 1 lug of the tire covered...gonna find another cop and ask the same question)

|Scout||Out of curiosity who makes a 33 x 14.5?|
|05-06-2008 11:55 PM|
the correct backspacing.. i run 3.75'' backspacing for 12.5'' tires.. gf runs 4'' for 13.5'' tires..
id run 3.75'' tires with a 1'' wheel spacers if i had to run a 14.5 tire..
i wouldnt want that wide of a tire especially in snow

|timritchieblue||you will need to have your fr and rear end narrowed so they will tuck|

Anyone Running 33x14.5s??
Is anyone running 33x14.5s on their TJ? Got any Pics? Anything needed different from running 33x12.5?
