    Hey fellas I needed some help on some tires. I was wandering would it be safe or legit if I put 35s on my current wheels which are 16s. I have spidertrax wheel spacers so i could fit the 35s. I just got the basic fabtech lift kit and my truck looks a lil bit silly with 285s. Either I go with 35s on 16s with wheel spacers or throw out the wheels and tires and get 17s or 18inch wheels. What do you guys think? Is anyone running this kind of setup yet?
    Do you guys prefer the Nitto mud grapplers, BFG KM2s, or Goodyear Duratracs wanted to also see what people vote on hard decision so far.

    Yea that was my list i put them in but was really debating on duratracs and km2s mostly and the wheels are 16x8.5 and like +0 offset

    Anyone else here have 35s on 16s?

    well like given i know nothing about his situation, i assume his truck is a street queen? but overall I love the km2s, mine are awesome but if he is doing nothing but street i think duratracs are better suited for him. Now looking at his sig i may be wrong, but all I know is that the mud grapplers are not built for a highway tire.



    Edit: If you want the km2s get them, they are a great tire. I dont have that great of traction on my YJ and it has good year ATs, but you should be fine with the 8.5s and a 12.5 inch tire. somebody back me up

    No its not a street queen. I am a novice at offroading, but it is definitely something I'm trying to get into and get better at
