TLC Split Rims... what tires are you using and can you post a photo or two of them?
there's a pic of my troopy with splits and 33x10.50 bfg mt's in the 45 section.
found a set of Parnelli Jones Dirt Gripz Tires 36x14.50x16...
on the dirt grips, depends on price and what you use your rig for. Ok dirt roads and general off-road cruzing, but cup out quick on a dayly driver. Thy are a kelly springfield (Goodyear) product so being round is always in my opinion a consern.
285/75/16 BFG MTs the tires are crap but the size is right. I would go with the Toyo Open Country MTs in the same size
285/75/16 == 33" x 9.50 wide tire
285/75/R16 is over 11" wide...
I've been running the Jeep service on mine 7x16.
I plan to eventually run the same as bull, either a bfg mud 255/85/16 or the Swamper LTB in a 34/10.5/16
Buckroseau has some cooper 255/85/16's
I would think a 14.5 would be way too wide on a stock ~6" split rim. I think a 10.5 is about perfect, a 12.5 is pushing it on width. Why not run some 9x16's
I think Bull meant 255 85 R16 ;p the tall skinny Muds...
Personally i wouldn't run a 14.50" tire on that split rim...are they like 6" wide? Thats a REALLY wide tire. Hope you have power steering...cause those are seriously gonna suck to turn.
255/85r16 toyo m-55's ....the best tire i have ever owned on my cruiser...radial tire
the spare is a 34/9.5x15" SS the best for off-road only use...they do make it in 34/9.5?x16"...bias tire
here is a close up...Toyo M-55's....great tire IMO...well worth the $$$
You could do Q78 if you wanted...maybe even 38.5x11 Boggers.
