    Well now my truck and trailer are all rocking the same size tires, 255/85 16 BFG Muds. I even managed to fit a 255/85 in the stock location for the spare tire under the bed. Now my question to every one, should I leave the old school toyota land cruiser split rims on the trailer. Or should a swap them out with the same rims I have on the truck?

    FMF, your whole rig looks nice as is. Nice trailer you have there. I would not swap out the wheels on the trailer unless you can't figure out where to put the cash, ..just send it my way...

    The only thing that stays in the back of my mind is that these are split rims which means they have a tube instead of the tire holding the air. Now I do have one full size spare on the truck but if it where a very shitty day and I where to get two flats on a trail. There is no way I can patch a tire tube on the trail like you can with a tire on a standard rim.

    They are going to measure smaller with the weight on the tire, but that still is pretty tall on an 8" wheel. My new KM2's with weight on them measure just a touch over 33". BFG rates them at 33.3" tall but I'm sure that is off the vehicle and on a 7" wheel IIRC.

    Anybody know of anybody running the SCS F5 wheels with 255/85s?

    I really want to pull the trigger on some of the 4.5"BS ones but i cant bring myself to do it without seeing the look. More importantly the potential for rubbing scares me.

    Anybody got info?
