    Anyone here running 295/75/16's?

    Or if your running 33x12.5 can you let me know how much trimming you had to do?


    As I see it, the 295's are about 1" skinnier than the 12.5's but they are about .5" taller. If this is wrong let me know. I'm contemplating running some 295/75/16 Dynapro MT's but don't want to have to do too much trimming.

    The wheels I'm looking at are 16x8 with 4" BS
    Or
    Staying with stock wheels and spydertrax spacers (until I can buy new wheels)

    a lot of trimming..haha well..i did..due to BS..out of the lower fenders and pinch weld and a lot of hammering..

    still rubs too..

    Paul i believe is runnign that size(ponethousand)

    with 4'' BS you'll probably still have to run spacers to keep them off the frame at full lock..

    I had them and liked them. I'm just wanting to try a little wider of a tire this time, but I also don't want to lose the height by going 285/75. I figure I can keep the same height and go wider by going with 295/75. Plus before my cooper ST's I had the Hankook Dynapro ATM and loved them. So I figure the Dynapro MT should be a good tire.

    I guess the actuall size
    295/ 25.4= 11.6"

    I'm guessing the tire companies round up and consider it a 12" wide tire but it's actually closer to 11.5"

    285/ 25.4= 11.2" but tire companies consider it 11.5"

    TacoDell is running that size with 4" BS wheels. I know he is running a 1" BL as well though. It's a big tire.

    Well I put all of my 230 pounds into it for a solid five minutes haha. I can probably get it off, I'm just too lazy really. I can get the top part off, not the part on the LCA.

    Yep I used a hex head to hold it. I couldn't get any leverage on it that's all. I might try the ATF and acetone trick. Never tried it but I've know about it for a while.
