    Hope this isnt a repost but I couldnt find anything. Iam going to need new tires when I get my hummer wheels done. Now the question. What is the best tire to run that comes in a 16.5. I wanted a procomp x terrain or nitto mud grappler but neither come in a 16.5. So what would you recommend. I am looking for a 36 or a 37. Any help would be great. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    TSL radial

    I've got 38s and really like em. Watch ebay, the big show truck guys always run 16.5 tires and when they wanna go bigger, you can get em cheap. Thats how I got mine.

    Don't know what sizes they come in but I'm a fan of the baja claw. The more I See them the more I like them.

    Right now I run 38x15.5x16.5 TSL Radials. They work well but I won't be buying them again. Next set are either going to be bias IROK's or bias Gumbos. The radials just don't seem to have a tough enough sidewall.
    My buddy has tons of trouble w/ his 35x12.50x16.5 BFG M/T's. They are always getting hole, going low, falling off the beads, etc... They suck.

    I will watch on ebay. I was thinkig the iroks or ssrs. Then I saw the 37x13x16.5 boggers (8 or 6 ply) so now I am debating those
