Putting together a list of things I need.
The plan is to run either 46 x 19.5 claws or 44 x 19.5 boggers.
Both using 16" wheels. (avoid brake issues on the D60).

What would you guys recommend for width?
I have never ran tires this big before.

for a snow wheeler rig typically the wider the better. I think Frey's are 16 x 12 with a 3 in backspace.

Mason is lookin for 15 x 14 right now lol

I was thinking 16 x 14.
I have seen even wider.

Looking for input, thanks mike

I was measuring last night, with the WMS to WMS on the d60, the WMS is just outside of the body.. lol

Mike's 44s on my cj with the narrow axles (63.5 wms-wms) almost didn't fit width wise on my trailer, had to drive over one fender with the fronts and air down and wedge the rear tires inbetween the fenders with a prybar lol

For the little Datsun, you could probably get away with 12. It's small and doesn't have the mass of most of the trucks up here. I think most of the guys run 14 wide

This sounds like the ticket.

16x14 with 1 inch for head lock. Make it 16x15
