    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.

    I just measured my actual diameter and 255/85 toyo MT is 33.75"

    EDIT: I just remeasured with a more accurate method and they are in fact 33.5", inflated on a 8"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.

    Truck had no weight on it. Tire was lifted until it was barely touching ground then measured.

    Thx I love these tires. I had to break the bead on all 5 today to add more stainless media for my dynamic balancing experiment. Went from 6.4oz to 8oz. It was working with 6.4 but sometimes had a wobble in the steering wheel at different speeds. I'm using 1/8" stainless polishing media from ebay. It runs about 10$/lb

    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?
