    I want to know how big of tires can be run on a 40 with Spring over a smallblockv8 4spd and 72 tcase with 4.1 axle gears and I also have fj60 birfs if that helps at all. I was thinking 35sx but i see lots of cruisers on here with 38.5s how do they hold up?

    I know that on the street it would be fine but I want to do some real wheeling

    Whatever you can afford:

    To pay
    To cut away/modify
    To tolerate repairing

    On, and on, and on, and on it goes....

    Good luck!

    Mine is SOA with stock springs and I run 35s with no rubbing. With some trimming you could go bigger.
