    Need some advice-

    Right now I have the stock AT20s and am looking for a more aggressive tire. I have the Bilstein 5100s at 2.5 and the rear TSB.

    Question is: 65 vs 70s?

    Any rubbing problems at low speeds or articulation? Only downside I can see if I get a flat, I'd have the run the 65s and make sure it is in the front axle in 2wd...

    Anyone have any pics of a 70/17 with the 5100s?

    Thanks.
