    You can always bring along a ball peen hammer just in case you 'had' to take it off road, 'discovered' that it rubbed, and had to convince the fender to give your tires a little more breathing space! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Im running 265x75xR16 Fisk Phantom All Terrains that I got for $300 installed @ America's Tire, w/ a warranty. They were one day old take offs, siped, but I badly needed something to replace my balding 235x85xR16's and I couldnt beat that price.

    Long story short, I decided later that night to take the running boards off to prevent rubbing.

    I wonder if you have any pics of how close the front tires are to the fender when you turn em? I was sure I wouldnt be able to fit 33x12.5, based on how close my 265x75's already are, but I might reconsider. Not that I plan on buying new tires anytime soon, but I remember seeing some 33x12.5's in the paper recently and the price on em was right.

    Do they have a medium aggressive tread pattern? Have any idea how they handle on the road and the supposed life span? I've been thinking about them.

    They are already sipped to make them quit. They have a 30,000 waranty on them. If I can get 30,000 of them I'll be happy. Here is a picture from 4wpw..

    Also they balanced pretty well.. 2 took 3oz. One took 4oz. One took 6OZ. It always seems you get one bad tire out of 4..LOL
