    Rims for Interco\'s SSR or TSL radial

    I haven't decided which tire im getting yet (SSR or TSL radial) and I still need a rim, I'm still confused with backspacing so Ill give you guys some specs of the tires and tell me which rim from which company you would suggest me running on my Jimmy, and also which rim size would go on a GM 14 bolt rear, and Dana 60 front. Last Q, what does it mean when they say "Ply Rating". Thanks
    Specs:
    TSL radial-36x14.50
    SSR's -35x14.50
    or something else. I'm still in the planning/thinking mode /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The 'ply' rating has to o with the load range of the tire. To a lesser extent, it is related to the sidewalls 'toughness/flexibility.

    Plys are the layers or rubber, polyester, steel and who knows what else the tire is composed of. The more plys you have the more stiff the tire is and how much protection it has against the rocks /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif. Also affects load rating. The picture above is with my tires at 0 psi but they look like they still have a bit in them.

    BTW- it made it in the garage with about 1" to spare /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
