    So.... as we all know there squares are never done are they. I ran into a sweat seal in a Dana 60 front and decided I should finally step into the beadlock and 37’s click. I’m still waiting on parts from ORD to swap in my 60 but I went ahead and started mounting the tires on the rims.

    Now that you have the tires actually mounted I don't suppose you can take some actual measurements of the tire itself? Like how wide is the tread (which might be kinda hard to measure) and what is the height of the tire with weight on it.

    What tire pressure are you running also?

    I'm still playing with wheel width, offset and would be nice to know how "true" the tires are to the size stated on the sidewall.

    @colonel mustard Could you also take a shot down the side of the truck? I want to see how far the tires stick out of the fenders. Thanks
