    Okay, so i am going to cut the Ba-geejazas out of my fenders, and 35's won't look good once I do it.

    I want a set of 38's (or around that size, maybe 38.5 or 39...). I was looking at the BFG M/T's but APPARENTLY they only go to 37", and run on a 17" rim.

    I currently have 16.5" rims, and would like to keep them.

    But yeah, this is for a suburban.

    Never mind, I have made my mind made up.

    I am choosing the cheapest tire out of these four choices:

    TSL SSR 38x15.50R16.5LT
    TSL TrXus MT 38.5x14.50R16LT
    TSL Super Swamper 38x12.50-16.5LT
    BFG M/T 37x12.50R17

    I don't like the idea of switching the rims, but I like the BFG's so I may have too anyways...

    A person with common sense would realize that a site this big and that has been around for awhile might be able to ascertain that this discussion has been numerous times in the past. Lots of good information has been posted in the past and it might give you something that might not come up now. But if that's the way you want to be about it, that's cool..............:rolleyes:

    no no, sorry man, that wasn't meant to be sinacle (sp?) at all. I read it now and it sounds sarcastic.

    I actually did search 38" tires, and I got like 80 pages... I read so many of these types of posts on what kind of tire, I knew which ones to choose from.

    Sorry if there was any offense taken on your part. I don't try and start fights on this board, I am like sweden. hahaha
