I am leaning towards the dick cepek dc2's but want to see some other options as well

I have Dick Cepek DC2's on my 31' BFG AT's and i absolutely love the look!

15x8 with a 12.5 tire is what is best for off road can sure down more. Tread will never touch right like it would with a 15 x10 but it's worth it

Since this is my first set of knobby tires, I don't have anything to compare to.

One thing that drives me nuts is the contact patch is in the middle of the tire. The edges of the tread do not touch the road well. I have dropped the PSI to 25 on-road and it still doesn't fix the issue. I don't feel safe going any lower on-road.

I believe the tire is to wide for an 8" rim. I have a feeling a 9" would fix it. Unfortunately, they are not available.

Rubicondon53 Oh, cool. Obviously im not up on wheels

jrmiller The dc2's are wheels not tires and I'm going with Goodyear tires
11-04-2011 08:46 AM
Rubicondon53 My original Goodyear 245/75/16s ( 31x10.5) MTRs wore like iron , 55 thousand miles, (now on my trailer) The 255/85/16s ( 33x11.5 ) BFG KMs, are wearing like iron as well.. and when they go, I'll replace them with KM 2s.. DCs are probably every bit as good, but I like the idea of having a BFG dealership in nearly every small town in North America.. When I blow out a BFG or a Goodyear in the bush of Canada, or the middle of Kansas, I know I can get a replacement at the next town. I do run a rare size, but I can always call ahead and order a replacement, no matter where we might be..
