    I'd try and get wheels with the Goodyear MT's on them in a 37.... They are a radial and not a bias ply tire.

    Over on the PBB. "J20m715" is selling the MT's and wheels. He's in Garland, TX....

    Well they ARE a bias ply mud tire. So yes they do flat spot and vibrate a bit. BUT, the bias style (8 bolt) rim used a magnesium beadlock/run flat that liked to "walk around a little inside the rim. The biggest joke was to try to balance these sonsabitches. A couple of miles and your balance job went out the window :doah: . The radial style (10 bolt) rim used a two piece rubber (now one piece) that doesn't move. So, theoretically, if you ditched the magnesium beadlock and used an aftermarket (PVC?) beadlock I wouldn't think they'd vibrate as much. NOTE: a rubber runflat/beadlock also became available for the Bias rim, but bias (mud) tires fell out of favor with most units.

    You could look at govliquidation.com for them also. They always seem to have huge lots of wheels and tires for real cheap.

    If you don't plan on turning those wheels into beadlocks, I would suggest a set of H2 wheels and BFG AT take offs. They can be had for about $600 most places I have seen. 16.5 wheels are garbage if you want to air down. Plus the H2 wheels are bling 17"ers.
