    I think I decided on my new setup for my 14BFF. I am going through DesertRat.com (anybody deal with them). They have a package deal of 16.5 X9.75 Eagle 589's with 35/12.5R 16.5 Conti Tires for $999.99.

    Anybody have Conti's on now? What do you think.

    I like the price, hell the Eagles are $125 each. Just looking some input.

    Ahh.....I hope you know about 16.5 rims and the lack of running low tire pressures.If you are planning on doing some off roading do not go below 20 psi's.I went with 15" diameter and grinding the brake calipers.I believe the the "contential" tires are manufactered by BFG,but don't trust me on that."Desert Rat"...good on line prices but don't expect to pay that in the store.Hope this helps
