The rims are a bit too wide but the price isn't bad.

Weird. I wonder what the backstory is on them.

0 Miles on a set of tires that aren't take-offs?

Yeah thats strange, especially considering that they're shown on a vehicle.. unless that was just something he found online.

Rims are definitely wide. How wide is too wide?

Damn, if those were 32s I would have been all over that. Those are the exact tires I'm thinking of upgrading to once next year rolls around.

Do you have a body or shackle lift yet, ha ha?

Well I've technically had a shackle lift since I put my lift on, but honestly you'd be amazed how much those TJ rear flares opened up the wheel wells. I could easily clear 33s as is if the rear end was up to it (along with other beef-up mods). I've changed my plans for swapping the rear end out (thus my chromoly 35 shafts) so I'm planning on topping out at 32s (265/75/16s) next tax return season.

I want at least another year on these tires though because they just turned a year old, and quite frankly they are the balls. The plan is to pass them along to my old man who has 16" rims on his Explorer. We swapped them on there last March for a few days when he needed an inspection sticker, and I'm ashamed to say they made his grocery-getter look pretty mean. The Moabs helped with that too though.
