    Who all runs 36\'s ???

    Who all runs 36's ? What do you think of them ? I've got some 36's myself, and really wonder if I should have just got 38's.

    I am running 36's, but now with the D60 and 14Bff my clearance has gone to crap. I am thinking about going to 38's next myself. I hate the 36's I have now, damn hummer tires are noisey and road walk really bad, guess that is what I get for spending $80 on a set of 4 tires /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I have 36" SX's, and they're great, but....of course, just like I think happens to all of us at some point, I want bigger! now I wanna get 39.5, or at least 38's. I really like the SX's though...too bad they don't make them bigger than 38. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    ive had 36s onmy blazer for almost 7 years...of a few different brands....my favs are the swamper SXs i just recently sold them and moved up to the 38.5/14.50/15 SXs...overall for what i use it for and the trails around here they worked great....they were big enough to do most everything i wanted....within reason....they were still big enough to break 44 axles regularly though...

    I've got 36" SXs too, and will go bigger next time I buy tires. I wanted 38s in the beginning, but 4 SXs on wheels with good tread for 300 bucks was too good to pass up at the time.

    I have been running 36x12.5x15 tsl Swampers for years
    (sweet 16). Only a few percent of the time do I think
    about changing, they work for me.

    ive got 36x14.50's on 3 inch of lift, i KNOW i can fit 39's. 36's are just too small in my opinion. But im the kinda person who wants to stuff the biggest tire i can on the least amount of lift.

    I've had 36x12.5x16 TSL Radials for about 3 years. I love them on the road, but will be going bigger when either A: These wear out (doesn't look like that's happening) or B: I get something else to drive everyday, then it's time for the 44's /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Re: Who all runs 36\'s ???

    I have 35" boggers right now but will be going to a 36x16.50 Dick Cepek FC kevlar or a 36x14.50 baha belted soon.
    I don't wan't 36's and wish I could find a 35 as wide as the 36's cuz I don't like big tires all that much unless it's a trail only truck that needs them.

    Re: Who all runs 36\'s ???

    I'm running 36x12.50 buckshot radials. They do pretty good to me but I havent run any other 36s. I havent broken my 10 bolts yet but I'm easy on the stupid pedal and have a 250 L6. My truck is also a short box step side so the lack of weight compared to a burb for instance might also help.

    Ive got some 36x12.50x16 tsl radials. Havnt done much off the road with them yet but they loved the snow. They are super loud cruising down the road But that may have somthing to do with the rust holes that you can poke your head through in the back corners /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Eventualy i wand to go 38s! and a solid floor /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Well, I just scored me a set of five 38.5x14.50/15 TSL/SX, 4 have great tread, but one has a side wall cut/holds air and the other still has the stickers on it. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif I guess I need to go read that D60 caliper grinding article /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif
