    What are you looking for rims?

    The last set of tires go for $181 each.

    It's a wheelbase thing, you wouldn't understand.

    thx for the reply, but the tsl's are bias ply (i think) and they will be on a daily driver, anyone running tsl's on a daily driver?

    38x15.50R16.5 TSL Radials are the biggest radial light truck tires I know of.

    They're $275 each though!!!

    They come in both flavors, radial and bias-ply. I have bias-plys on my daily driver. They aren't too bad, but they can provide a pretty bumpy ride at times! [​IMG][​IMG]

    that sucks...the 16.5x38" version is $188...the ones for 16" rims are $203. grrrrr. When I go full 1-ton, I wanna run 16" rims...I sure wish tire makers would make more stuff for that size...of course, if more people ran 16s they would, but I cant blame *everyone* can I?! =p

    other than tire availability, I dont see why anyone would want to run 16.5s...16s are smaller (lighter!)..are big enuff to fit the D60 in...and hold a bead better! 16" should be the wheel'er rim of choice...right?!

    its neat, the tires actually steer the truck. you have very little to do with it. "no officer, my tires hit the honda, i had no say in the matter"

    beligerence doesn't justify intelligence.

    Ya I run the 38" radials. They are great onroad and arent too noisy. Also, offroad where it counts they shine. They were damn pricy though. If you have a local 4 wheel parts they have tiny junkyards in the rear. One time my buddy hopped their fence afterhours and snagged a set of 38" radials. If your really desperate you can try that!
