    Need tires soon, an I want go up to 18' wheels. It will be a slightly negative offset wheel, with 9 or 9.5" Narrowed it down to Enduros, Gatlins (if they still make them in black in that size), or maybe Chambers if I hit the lotto. That said, tire choices in 18's aren't numerous. I want a very aggressive AT or a less aggresive MT.

    The Cooper Discoverer STT is available in a 305/60R18, and the Falken Wild Peak AT is available in 285/65R18 as are a few others (Nittos, etc) Would love to find a C rated tire, but that seems like a pipe dream.

    Am I asking for massive rubbing issues with a 305? Currently my 285 Revos don't rub at all, with 1.5" Spidertrax adapters on stock sport wheels.

    Haha, but to answer your question you will need to trim the inner fender and possibly cut the cab mount and pound the pinch weld at full lock. It's kind of a strange tire size its about a 32.5x12

    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    Thats pretty close to what I am running, if i had it to do over again I would go with 17's but the 18's have "enough" side wall and ride pretty good in the dirt. Just plan on a little trim...
