    So what tire\'s are you gonna get next?

    Just wanted to hear some people's choices. I'm currently looking for a 33/12.5R15. I have SSR's now,but they are getting badly wornout. I would get another set but I'm short on $$$. So what's everyone's choices???

    Well, if I ever get the truck back together so I can wear out my 37" SSR's I'm going to get 39.5" boggers.

    There's no situation in life so tragic that I can't look back on it and laugh, "Ha ha! Glad that didn't happen to ME!

    Re: So what tire\'s are you gonna get next?

    I too have SSR's now, got them in May..............the 35x12.5x16 size. Very impressed with the street manners, and since I am a one ton mall poseur that's important [​IMG]. Seriously, I would get these again, depending on how many miles I end up getting out of them, or what I really wanted was Goodyear MT/R's or Parnelli Jones Dirt Grips - but the PJ's are <font color=red>crazy expensive</font color=red> so they won't make the grade. Now that Goodyear has 35x12.5x16 they might be the next one I try. Problem is I don't put many miles on the beast so it might be 5 years before I need tires again............a good thing I guess [​IMG].

    I think a set of these in the 44x21x16.5s would be chillin on a set of phat custom centered triple gold plated 8 lug daytons. I'd be the pimp dawg in my pound with those. Bling bling!!! To bad they dont make them in 20s yo, but we beggass cant alwayz be choosas!

    <font color=blue>I have 36" swamper radials now. Next set will be either 38x12.5x15 SX's (37.4" measured) or 37x13x15 (36.8 measured) Boggers. The sidewalls on these tires arent so great

    Re: So what tire\'s are you gonna get next?

    I'm thinking about 48" Michelins if I can find some 20" wheels. Otherwise, I may go with smaller tire like 42-44" TSLs for now. If I go with the smaller tire, I can always upgrade to the big boys if I ever find a good deal on some 20" 8 lug wheels.

    I would love to find some 33s to replace the bald ones I'm running now.
