    probably with low PSI, I wouldn't drive them on the street at all and I bet you would have a little trouble if you needed to use the warranty if you told them what rim you are running.
    That s10/short bed abortion looking truck in TTC had 15x8's with 44' boggers and swamper says to run 12's with those.

    I wouldn't run it on the road at all. They're just too wide for those wheels. Off road, go for it and see what happens, but on road, that an unacceptable risk.

    If you can afford those tires and the axles needed to run them, you can probably afford beadlocks to go with them. Just my opinion though.

    I'd make sure you have at least a 10" wheel, maybe 12".

    Its just I already have the recentered cummer wheels. Ill probly end up using a 40in tire but I just cant get the 46 outa my mind. I wounder how long the d60 would hold up with those.

    Unless your D60 is built to the hilt (Superior 35 spline axles, aftermarket knuckles etc.) or you don't wheel it very hard I wouldn't think it would stand much of a chance for long. Just my .02 worth. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    It seems that for many people lately, 40s are the practical limit of a 30 spline '60.

    If the hub fails won't it take the stub with it?
