    Those tiny tires always bugged me... I finally got money to replace them!
    I feel much better now!

    33X12.5's. They fit perfectly! I figure a 2 inch lift sometime and the truck will have the stance I want it to have.

    If anybodys been to Ontario they'll know theres not a lot of hills or rocks so articulation isn't really required too much. Just horsepower, tires and clearance to get through the mud!/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    See that white stuff all around the truck in his photo's. It this evil stuff called "snow". For the street he's far better off having those A/T's for what 95% of his driving will be durring the winter.

    Remember this is my daily driver MT's are not nice in the snow, or ice, actually they can be scary at times. I've play with AT's before and as long as you can keep the tire speed up to clean out the lugs they are a fairly good tire
