    So i have a standing offer(sorry Bozowise) for my current 38.5x14.16.5 SXs. for of them are 90% and three spares are 20% or less. so the offer is trade even and i keep 1 of my spares for four 95% 39.5x15x16.5 TSLs. I like all of us want bigger but for the time being only have 4.56s and hummer beadlocks which are only just over 7 inches wide. Should i take it or leave it? Or sell tires to Bozowise so he can get rid of his thornturds lol and buy something else and gears later.

    Man I am going to be stuck with Thornturds forever :doah: LOL no problem here because I need 16" not 16.5" for my beadlocks :wink1:

    And there are not many choices I see for 16" in atleast a 38 I wanted some SX but they are only up to 36x12.50 they make the regular tsl in a 38x13 but that is a bit more narrow then I wanted.

    Guess my only hope for the 16" wheels is a 38.5x15 bogger or maybe the 39.5 or 42" irok's.

    I think the boggers would kill me in the sand and I don't have access to a groover to cut them down. :(

    trade them! ppl have run 15x8 on 44x18 boggers....you should be fine. that would look sweet. those tires really arent that much wider than what you already got, so i wouldnt be worried bout width.

    I don't know exactly how this trade is supposed to work but you'll be able to get the TSL's on the hummer rims, and 4.56 gears will do fine with 39.5's.

    I've got 16/38.5R16.5s on 16.5x8.25 Hummer beadlocks, they balloon a little, but it helps protect the Studs.
