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.

MoA 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".

ajtudor I'll take the advice and stick with 12.5

Thanks.

Yep but he's only going with 33" tires where 12.50" is the more common width.

MoA uh.. trip.. arent tires round?
05-07-2008 12:37 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.
05-07-2008 12:20 AM
MoA 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

Thats why I wanna ask a couple more cops to see if the first was actually accurate.

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.

dwdrums801 yea i would only want something like that if i drove only on sand
05-06-2008 11:31 PM
nicolas-eric IMO 33x14.5 looks funny because they are too wide.
05-06-2008 11:29 PM
AzTJ I know that Pit-Bull Tires make a 33x13.5... and a 35x14.5... but never heard of a 33x14.5.

MoA 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
