    So - is it true that ODOT has declared the 49" Irok illegal EXCEPT for Super Dutys?

    One of the new guys at work - runs a '73 Suburban - 12" suspension, 3" body lift - baby $hit dark green. -

    He had 40" Iroks on it a month ago- sold those 'cuz a Super Duty in Clackamas pulled up next to him and looked "down" into his truck /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    So - he sells his brand new 40" Iroks, and goes to 4WPW this week - apparently they won't sell 49" tires to him due to this ODOT rule?

    So he ends up getting 44" Iroks - which are hella sweet anyway(and very big)

    But - the morale of the story - WTF is up with ODOT declaring 49" tires unfit for any rig other than a Super Duty? Can anybody else validate this? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Does kind of sound like a chode. Maybe he went in and couldn't afford them so he came up with a tall tale about how they wouldn't sell them to him though.
    Money probably wasn't the issue though... from the story it sounds like this guy isn't too worried about money.

    i dont see why he wouldnt be able to buy tires if they are illegal or not... So 4wpw cant sell 49" iroks unless you prove that you have a super duty??? what if your building a mud truck?.... Maybe they wouldnt install them. but the would still have to sell them wouldnt they?

    Yeah - didn't someone on here work at 4WPW on 82nd - maybe they could confirm.

    That's one of the pre-req's of working there - attaining a supreme omino-impotence with ones chodeness...

    How the hell do I know why you haven't seen that Suburban? Actually he just started there like two months ago /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
