    People running 40\" hawgs

    Sup ya..
    I know alot of you know that I am going to get my truck legal in NJ. 38" tires is the max now. But my 40's are at 38.3" which they will pass. they dont care what the sidewall says but what they actually measure. I was going to get the truck through inspection with these but I have noticed that they are so DRYROTTEN!!! that they will not pass. Can you measure your tires from a flat surface to the top? Then tell me the measurements and size rim... New 40" hawgs are 39" but lil lite on psi and wider rims will make them shorter... I wanna run 40" hawgs due to the width that they have. Also 40's are 39" on a 16.5x9.75 rim. Im gonna order 16.5x12 rims so that would make the tire shorter a little bit right?

    well im gonna order on tuesday, as I am going to call the inspection guys up tomorrow and talk to them about stuff first.....

    why dont you get a 14wide wheel?
    My buddy has 40" on his F350 He had 12wides but the switched to 14 and I think it looks better and also probably shortened the tire a little too(His are probably the old style ones)
