    Why would I never get to utilize how good the tire is?

    Because it doesn't fit into the fenders. Thus fire roads and trails where a subaru will also join you will be about it. Thus you could just use about any tire and not see how awesome that one is on the more rugged trails.

    I've tested a ton of this stuff.... took empty wheels to Discount Tire, borrowed a wide 305 or 325 but basically 12+" wide on

    Thanks for the insight and knowledge. I'm not going to do anything, I'm going to let the guys do whatever it is they need to do to make it work. Thanks though

    I've already contacted them about this. They're prepared. Also, that tire is like $100 more per tire than what I'm getting. Almost $400 a tire without shipping or install

    Maybe irrelevant if you are not doing any of this yourself, but what jwest told you is pretty much spot on.

    I mucked around with wheel spacers and lift rods for 40K miles, and the on road ride and handling sucked versus stock and was very stiltish off-road.

    I went to the strut spacer/rod/Compomotive setup a few months ago, and was, quite frankly astounded at how much better the truck drives. I had just gotten used to crap dynamics in the pursuit of bigger tires. In my defense, the current rod/spacer combination was not on the market when I set mine up back in 2014, and compomotives were much harder to come by.

    I am currently running mine at 45mm above the factory settings of 465mm front and 483mm rear (center of hubcap to wheel Arch moldings).

    If you are going to keep the truck, and actually wheel it, take it from someone who has paid good money to do it both ways and go the route of narrower tires.

    Good luck.
