    Yep, that is pretty common. I saw a fork lift the other day with 31" Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. I have seen them with Hawgs, and a few other patterns too.

    Firestone came out with That pattern for ag use many years ago then some how denman got permission to use that desingn on a light truck tire --- Ground hawgs you can still get dot legal 48" tall "ground hawgs" from firestone But I think the only non tractor rim is the 20" truck rim -------which just happens to be the stock rim on the 2 1/2 ton military trucks so I was thinking get a set of duece axles and stock rims and those 48" firestones and you'd have a" street legal " mudder that would tackle just about any hole you threw at it /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
