    What did you use to convert to coils in the rear and which coils are you running?

    Could you post what you did with the inner wheel well linings? Every time I look at my bumpers to trim I can just see the liner ending up like a floppy mess.

    Went up to 35x12.50r17 and they measure 35 on the dot when mounted. So far no rubbing lock to lock with only the 1in coil spacer. Now just deciding what route to go with for my mid travel.... Kings... fox’s... radflos... ?

    Beefy!!
    Curious what brought you back to the AT3W's. Value? Preferred over Ridge Grapplers?

    Edit: What are you doing for a spare?

    Being that this is my daily and more used for snowboard/ ski duty then off-roading the at3w’s in my experience are a little smoother and have better traction in icy road conditions then the nittos. Both are great tires.
