    Alright im thinking of putting a set of 27x9.50R14 SSRs or a set of 28x8.50R14 TSL bias tires on my luv(im only going 14 becouse i have a spare set of 14x7 alum inum rims for my luv). But my question is how over sized are swamper typically in width. Whith my 27.5s i have a good 3" to the top of mt fenders and about 2" to the back of my fenders. My curent tires measure 27" tall and 8.5" wide. Do you think i can clear these tires?

    I would think so. If not you can always trim the fenders a little or lift it a few inches. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i cant tell you in relation to your LUV, but how does it compare to a ranger in size? my buddy had 28x8.5x14 swampers on his ranger, i think they were 8.5 not sure, he had plenty of clearance..
