    Default ok, looking for some input on tire size

    i'm thinking about goin to a 35. currently running 32s under a 4 inch long arm. got a buddy who wants my 32s. i'll probably do some tube fenders as well. anyway, what do y'all think? also, are there any vendors here for BFG? looking for KM2s or for the right price maybe some krawlers. thanks

    Your Rubi 44's will hold up just fine to 35's. With the added room from the tube fenders you shouldn't have any clearance issues. You might need to lengthen your bumpstops to keep the tires from binding up in your fenders at full stuff if you haven't already. I jumped from 31's to 35's and I love them!

    you'll be happy when you make the jump. id check out places like craigslist your bound to find someone who either wants to just flat out get rid of theirs or wants to swap.

    I know some people that got good prices on MTR's here in Colorado. When I went tire hunting, the best deal I got was on Goodyear Duratrac's. I love the tires and they preform excellent off road. Just another option for you.

    no kidding, my 33" Goodyear MT/R Kevlars were 800 for 4, and that was with about 160 dollar discount.

    yeah, my cooper discoverer s/t set was almost 900. but I needed them RIGHT NOW, so it felt like a pretty good deal at the time.

    just figured I'd post the link to the KM2s. the only issue is that they're for 15 inch wheels, which a lot of people don't like. but I'd like to paint mine black and keep 'em.
