    I got a smoking deal on a set of new Trxus MT 38.5x14.50 tires.
    Should I look at getting a new set of 16x10 rims with 4 inchs of back spacing or
    can I get away with mounting this tire? Will the tire clear the lower arms with the stock back spacing?
    I have put 12.50s on a 7 inch rim before but I not sure if this is going to be pushing it to hard.
    How bad will the center bulged be if I do it?
