    always wanted to get a spare set of rims and modify them to fit.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7hDh4gr4qU

    that video inspired me

    anyone ever done it??? will a D60 and a 14bff hold up? the tires from the front of a 4x4 tractor would be small enough, between 35 and 40 inches i believe

    if you get some for 16.1" rim you can get a set of rims for a bobcat. Some of them have the same pattern as our 8 lugs. Brook ran Ag tires on the freak, not sure if he still does.

    sure looks like he still does.

    I saw a set of 40x9.50" tractors tires the other day that looked downright sexy.. I've toyed with the idea a whole lot.. the only real problem I could see is it would certainly not be steetable anymore

    a friend of mine runs 52" high speed tractor tires on unimog portal axles. its unstoppable in the mud. sucks everywhere else. especially the street, yes the street. Gotta love antique tags on ex military equipment.

    the only way i'd put them on my truck is if after i swap my axle's they would hold up and it'd only be to play in the mud

    :bow: :bow: Now I see why they build the "moose" trucks the way they do. Damn they've got some nice gooey stuff up there.

    I ran a set of free Bridgestone turf tires 13.6x8 (overall diameter 37") in sand dunes for some time, and they were awesome. Original 10-bolt diffs. Problem was at over 40kph they sounded like my truck was carrying a team of drunken banshees! The noise was just insane... plus I rubbed on tight turns...

    Consider that on sand dunes there's very little traction resisitance and so the stress on the diffs is much less than mud or rocks, and that also you have wide open spaces to turn in.

    I say if the tire fits - run it!!!

    I saw that video a while back and those Russians are hard-core. I mean who would keep driving when 80% of the vehicle is underwater? The navigator must have been holding his breath while the driver tried to drive out. I can't imagine trying to make it up that mudslide hill or breaking out the chainsaw to get rid of trees in the way.

    There are ag tires out there for 16" rims. :D Seen 'em on the back of Kubotas. Nothing compares to Ags, 'cept maybe a cut Bogger. Cut Bogger might even be better, with the lugs pretty much straight across. I know no other DOT tire can touch a Bogger, cut or not.
