    Is anybody here running them? I would like to see some pics and what mods were needed to fit them. Also some real world measurments.

    I know the the 40" ground hawgs only run about 38" on a 9.75" rim, even less on a 12" rim. I would like to run these and want to know if they will fit before I get a big suprise trying to mount them.

    rootbreaker runs them and loves them, search his posts from a couple of days ago and he had pics up of some mud(ice)holes he was playing in.

    If you go to denman's website they list the actual o.d. of their tires. I have seen 44" hawgs on trucks before and they look like big @$$ tires don't know what more you could want out of a set of 44's

    errr... on a 9.75 wide rim they are 39" tall...
    on a 12" wide rim they are 38.8"... ask me how I know :haha:



    yeah I LOVE MINE....
    also yes they run small so the 44's may run 42ish to 44ish.... over at ps.com there is a k5 on them and he loves them too...

    however they may not be good on rocks.. but street is good, quiet(er), and awesome in the mud....
    I havent wheeled them much but they have not let me down... I cant roost it either.. with a detroit front and rear I can drop the clutch and the sucker grabs bigtime... I was throwin chunks the size of boulders at a jeep behind me... of course not on purpose..... he was laughing ...
    he is going to buy a set of 32 or 33" hawgs

    GotSmoke from ps.com was a hawg hater.... however he got stuck in 4wd. he has a 1997 dodge diesel, 10" lift, had 35" swampers, detroit rear and 750lb-ft torque..... a guy pulled him out in 2wd that had 38" hawgs..... then the guy went through what he was stuck in in 2wd.....didnt get stuck
    so GotSmoke looked at his tires that are all caked.. and his bud with the hawgs.... they were CLEAN as a wistle.....

    so he came over to help me do 4.56's up front and a detroit.... he kept on looking at my new hawgs... so now he has them and loves them.. if you were to meet him and ask him if he likes them he would say...

    9 months ago I would have told you I was a Hawg hater... but now I love em....!!!! :D
