    what could be better? Anyways before i buy tires i had a couple questions for all you fellow k5ers. By 82 k5 (3 inch body lift) currently has 33 by 12.5 by 15 inch tires on it.I definetly want to move up to 35s but is it possible to get a wider tire also? Say a 35 by 14 by 15? I honestly don't know if it will rub or what so give me some advice on that please. Also Im looking at gettin the super swamper tsl sx or the tsl any suggestions on how these hold up on the road?I mean do they wear fast or anything? And where do you guys think would be a good cheap reliable place to go to buy online? Thanks for your time and merry christmas.

    Have you thought about the SSR still pretty aggressive but will last longer than an SX and is a radial. They come in a 35x14.5 Like has been said you will more than likely have to trim but they will fit.

    actually they end up measuring out to about 36.5" so im not sure how easily they will fit. a 35x12.50 SSR would probably be ur best bet
