    Alright fellas, after some help it looks like I have come to a conclusion on my wheels. I am going with the Pro Comp 7033-Series:
    [​IMG]


    My questions is, what rubber to a wrap them in??? I am trying to decide between the following 2 tires...

    295/70R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers:
    [​IMG]

    OR

    285/70R17 BFG KM2 Mud Terrains
    [​IMG]


    ANY advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, if anyone has experience with either tire, please share.

    Thanks!

    Fabtech Lift on top of 3 inch body lift. 34s trail grapplers on 18inch eagle alloys. KRFab Rear bumper, BHLM with HIDs, TRD seat covers, Hood scoop, N fab tire carrier, black valence, TRD intake, 40s Flowmasters, Foglight mod, best for last and thats my 4.56 gears, and much more too come.
    I love my trail grapplers, 10k on them and they still look brand new. Extremely quiet for a mud terrain, km2s are badass tho so u can go wrong with either one u pick. Mine have done well in all types of terrains even in mud and sand!

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    km2's. the nittos are awesome, but are going to require a good bit of trimming.

    Neither, Go with the Goodyear Kevlar's. That's what I have. a little expensive, but great tire for offroading and supposedly will give you about 50K miles if routinely balanced.

    I dunno man, you already have to do a pinch weld hammer and body mount chop to run BFGs at 285/70R17.

    I wonder if the Terra Grappler at 295 (a 33.5" tire!) isn't gonna rip your fenders off if you use it in anger.

    I notice TacoTron, above, who recommends them also has bushwhacker fenders in his pic.

    Maybe I should have explained that my truck is mainly street-use, wih little off-road. And when I do go off road it will be fairly mild... so I doubt I would flex enough to knock off my fenders.

    have found these to be the best AT tire, snow rated, smooth, etc.
    you have to at least go and view a set before buying anything

    Have you checked out Tirerack.com? They have a great performance breakdown of tires for whatever catagory of riding you do. They pretty much have all the info you could ever want of any tire.

    See build thread.
    If you searched around the wheels and tires section you'd find pros/cons of all sorts of tires.

    surprised mods havent moved this yet.
