This was a mod mostly out of necessity. it would seem that 16.5s are a dead wheel size, with pretty much only Interco & Pitbull still making tires for them. Since i dont need a super aggressive mud tire for this thing, i was originally going to go to 17s, until i found out i could get these tires cheap thru Eric, so i decided to go that route instead. Cheap tires with a high load rating, and they roll pretty nice down the road! Cant beat that.
My bald 35s measured out to 34.25", and these come to 36", both mounted on the same width wheel. Seems like alot more tire, until you compare it to my almost-new BFG spare (that has barely ever been run at all), and you see theyre really not that much taller than a 35" tire, which im ok with anyway.
