new tire fit test

here is what the 46" michelins would look like on a chevy with a 6" lift. I think i will definately need to trim a little more, move the axle forward a bit(getting the 1.5" offsets in the near future) and find me a set of rockwells so i dont kill my 60 front. Or i could put in 5:13's and use the michelins for street tires and put 40's on for wheeling....Nah..

big difference compared to a 38" swamper.


going to need to recenter the rims or get a set of these to mount them to the rockwells(courtesy of Chucks Trucks)

Re: new tire fit test

Awesome man! I'm ordering a set of brand new 12.5R20 XML's here in the next few days. There about 43" tall. I want the 46's but don't think I could fit it with my funky firewall problem.

Re: new tire fit test

ya, it will be a little while before i get these on. i could recenter the rims for the axles i have now, but I am sure i would destroy them. I have seen 12.5's on the nrefurbished M35's. i think they are a good size tire. not too wide, and a good hight. Not a lot of sidewall with the 20 in rims either andtough as hell since the are for medium duty trucks, not our "light duty" stuff. I might have to go up another inch or two to make these fit a well, but the weight of them(274 a tire, not including rim and internal double sided beedlocks, hehehe) will keep the center of gravity low, and if i do get rockwells on, it will help even more.
