    I wonder how things tires would be if you ran them w/D60 and 14ff? Just need to get some 20" rims made. The tires would probably hold up real well under a K5 for mudding and road use. I've seen them surplus for like $100 each in nearly new condition, in both 8.25-20 and 9.00-20 size.

    Go to "S.A. Traction ND" in the Firestone product box.

    Just wondering if 20" rims would weigh too much - anyone?

    The big problem is that those things are rated to carry SERIOUS weight. They're gonna be so stiff that you can pretty much let all the air out of them and still barely to get 'em to flex the sidewalls. :(

    But 20-inch wheels are becoming more common every day, thanks to the "dubs" look. :doah:

    I'm seriously considering running a set of 20's when I get the rockwells installed, they are rated at 17000 each so I should be able to run them damn near flat before my heavy ass 6200 lb blazer starts to flex a sidewall

    If you are going to run 20's just run those huge 50 inch iroks. Those make a 20 inch rim look small.


    Oh and those truck tires wouldn't do worth a darn. To stiff and more than likley to expensive. On the plust side though you could have them retreded. :haha: :haha:
