clutch questions

does anyone know if 33 x 12.5 tires are to big for a stock 258 engine and ax15 tranny? i bought it like this and have had two clutches go out in 1 year.

Re: clutch questions

Yes, They are To big. The clutch problem has more to do with your axel gear ratio than the 258
and ax15 combo. I would guess your ratio to be somewhere around 3.54 if not higher. With that tire size
and motor you should be at least 4.10 or lower.
