Wow What a Surprise

Today i was walking through a Sam's Club and decided to humor myself by going to the automotive section and looking for off-road tires. I was surprised to find some 31X10.50 BFGoodrich A/T's...for $105 a peice. With free balancing and mounting...I guess I knwo where I'm going when I need new tires.

31's [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img] Go with at the very least 32/11.50s 33's if you ever plan to do any lift.

Re: Wow What a Surprise

You really should consider 32x11.5's at least. Not much more money and they'll fit stock. Even 33x12.5 will fit if you can afford the extra ~$80 or so. Worth it.

Re: Wow What a Surprise

Can really tell a difference?...And won't the bigger tires hamper the amount of flex i get out of the truck?

Re: Wow What a Surprise

You will be able to tell the difference. The stability of the wider tire alone is worth it.

Re: Wow What a Surprise

If you change tire sizes only you have done nothing to the suspension so thus nothing to touch the "flex". 33X12.5 will fit with about $2 in mods.......Might get some rubbin' with real offroading but hey it will work better than 31s in the same hole.....

Re: Wow What a Surprise

It seems like everyone here is in agreement...'cept me, as usual. (That's why I am almost out of stars!) Havaak and BigNorm know what they are talking about as far as the truck looking way better. But if you are driving a Bronco with little $$$ to yuor name, the 31/10.50's will treat you way better for gas mileage and wear and tear on the truck. My Bronco wears 35's in the summer when I feel rich, but every winter and most road trips it wears 31's. They are the perfect tire for a stock Bronco...bigger than stock but not too big. You will still have full turning radius without ever rubbing also. But they do look a lot better on 8" wide wheels than stock 7" wheels...hence $$$ again if you listen to me and not them!

I guess we all agree on one thing...SPEND MONEY ON THE BRONCO, NOT CLOTHES, SHOPPING OR FOOD!

Re: Wow What a Surprise

31s were stock for my Bronco. If I even ever thought about going down a gravel road I would get at least 32s. You will like how they fill the fenders and I think Sams sells a set......
