Going to need some new rubber for the hoe

Help me out here

I have only ever rolled bf muds and tsl bias

Would sure love something inbetween

Im thinking 37" but will settle with 36 or 38

As for rims I guess its 8 bolt and apperently its tougher to find them in a 15" rim

17" seems to be the in thing right now but they are expensive

With my 38s I could get down to about 5 lbs on 15x8

Wonder what 16 or 17 would handle

Anyone tried the pit bull mad dogs

What's your price range?

You have a few options

i have 1500 for tires and rims

if i could somehow stay 15'' 6 bolt i could spend 1500 on rubber alone

Geolanders are good for Tim hortons drive throughs. And Wendy's.

15 inch wheels are a bit of a prob on a 8 bolt
and usually involves grinding on calipers
Or swapping parts
Also the offset is usually fairly outboard to help clear the brakes
Guys are doing six bolt conversions on the 60 but that alone would blow your build budget
So personally I'd run a tall skinny on a stock steel wheel
Better on road drive ability

I ran my 12.50 wide Mtr's on a 7" wide rim, at 2psi was great, never popped a bead I would run a aggressive radial like toyo mt or new BFG MUDs, discovery sst's or Mickey Thompson MTZ radials, they last a long time on a heavy truck, bias ply tires u will burn up fast
