    OK... After this weekend I am going to have 4" suspension lift and 3" body lift with fender trim..
    Here is the problem.. I dont know what tires to go with. I am afraid that 35x12.5x15 MTR's are going to look to small. I was told not to go any taller without adding some thickness for stability. So I though maybe I should go with some Super Swamper Radial TSL's maybe 36x14.5x15. What do you guys think is going to look better. I am trying to make it look tuff... alot tougher than it does now!! I dont know what will look best. Also, I know where I can find a great deal on MT/R's but what about the TSL Radials... anybody know a great online place or local place with great prices on these tires?????? I really need your help, I want to order these tires this weekend!! Thanks.

    The swampers will make it look the toughest. Try National Tire and Wheel.

    I have that exact same set up. 35x12.50's will look a bit small. I 'd run the 36x14.5's on 10" wheels if those were my options. I run 38x12.50's on 8" wheels so I don't rub. Soon, I'll have a 6" lift instead of the 4" and I'll run them on 10" wheels.

    I've got a 6" suspension lift, and now want a 2" body lift. I know I'll end up trimming my finders if for no other reson then to get rid of the rust. I also want to go with 39.5 TSL's.

    MTR's are sweet on and off road. If you want to use them, just skip the body lift and only do suspension lift and fender trim. Beautiful.

    If you have 7" of lift, go with 36's or 37's. Of course a 36" swamper is 2" taller than a 35" BFG. I'm not sure if MTR's are the same size or not.
