    Well, it's the biggest that will fit under flex. I've got 33"s on mine right now, but that's cuz the tires that were on it when I bought it were dry-rotted to hell, and all I had was this set of 33"s. (You Might Have A Problem If ... you keep spare sets of tires around :) )

    Anyway, mine won't be seeing trails -- I've the '74 for that -- so the 33"s won't likely rub whilst mall-cruising :haha:

    well i will be doing some daily driving with mine. also want to go on trails from time to time. maybe go see an old mine shaft in the mid/south west or go visit the desert bar in the south west that type of thing. some wheelign around here perhaps. but 31's i think are the way to go. i bet I will become a better wheeler by limiting my tires to 31". learn a few more tricks :D
