    Yes , I put narrow on the front and wide on the back
    33x12.5x15 rear
    235/85/16 front
    Helps the turning radius

    But I am going to be replacing tires soon
    Simex , Swampers or Boggers or maybe BFG

    yep, simular to that one but the factory mustard colour...

    RVL, the BFGs are not worth the money, Goodyear MTRs, or the Trxus or since you can get them and we can't the simex...
    cheers

    If you can get them I would be inclined to check out the Simex Extreme Trekker 2-The Centipede.

    However, seeing as I have never run them, seen them, or even get them...this thought is worth exactly what you paid...

    gb

    btw...looks great!

    Sheldon's wife wants a 70 series in that yellow colour. When he first told me about it, I didn't think I would like it...but now that I see one, it's not bad at all. Looks fairly good, actually.

    Simex are nice but very very soft
    Most guys run them 1.5 seasons and thats it
    And we run studless tires for 4 months of the year
    So Simex wear out after 10,000km

    $250 a tire for Simex or Swamper compared to BFG at $150
