    What size rims? Good god I hope you have lots of $ for gas. The wider you go the more friction or rolling resistance....hope you have like 15x12's and 4.56's....lets see pics!

    I'm running 38.5" x 16.0 (Wide) x 16.5" Swamper TSLs....with 6" of lift. I LIKE the wide-look of the tires on mine.

    For some reason, the larger tires (42's, etc.) just start to look too skinny, or out-of-proportion for their height. I know it's mostly an "aesthetic" thing with me.......

    I've got pics of mine in the gallery, if you haven't seen them already. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    A friend had some 39's M/T and it looked great. Sometimes when people pissed him of he would let the tire float into their mirror.

    It's all a personal thing.....And how narrow the trails you want to run....
