    I am stuck between 2 different wheel setups.... 35x12.5x18 or 35x12.5x20

    I originally wanted to go with the 18 wheels but was convinced by a few buddies that I should just go with the 20's since they go well with 35's.... LET me know what you think and please throw in some suggestions as well thanks!!!!


    btw im either going with BFG KM2 or Nitto Mud Grapplers.....

    thanks again!:D

    Im all for the bigger tires but bigger rims Im not to sure about but If I had to pick one I'd say the 18's, but I would still go smaller.

    I would go with 18's. What's the price difference between 18" and 20" rubber? I'm guessing the 20" tires would cost quite a bit more.

    Yea, Discount tire quoted me higher for the 20" tires and wheels. I understood the 20" wheel for costing more but didnt expect the tires would go up as well:confused:

    They handle fine. All Terrains will handle better than Mud Terrains (ie, Trail Grapplers and KM2s) but they do just fine.

    I'd say go with 17" wheels. I like the look of more tire than more wheel.

    Yea, I wanted to stay with 16 or 17's but i guess from what im hearing on here, I should probably go with the 18"
