    I would do the 39.5 in the 16.5 rim, but then again I have H1 rims, but they will proble be for sell in a couple of weeks. What kind of truck and lift do you have?

    I would say it depends on the type of wheelin' U do. I don't care for the boggers due to the fact that they have never worked for me in rev. or sidehilling in the mud or snow. Didn't have any problems in the dry stuff or on the rocks with 'em. Now the SX's and TSL's work for me on ANYTHING! So I would be willing to give up some heigth to get the extra versatillity.
    Just my $.02

    84 jimmy with 8" lift.will be geared 5.13s when done,also might be installing a 203/205 doubler. we run everything from wet and dry rocks to deep mud.the terrain verys consideratly on the same trail.boggers are the only option as far as tires go.after seeing what they walked threw this summer that had tsls spinning and slipping in there is no comparision unless you go with ag tires. just wished they made a 42/20 bogger.thanks for the replys

    i trailer so tire wear and street handling really isnt a concern just want to beable to drive it on the road if needed so that eliminates the ag tire option.
