help 8.8 wheel/rim combo

I just swapped out my rear for an 8.8 and I'm looking at tires and rims. I know Ive looked around but cant find an answer.


regeared to 4:56s 5 speed

3" of lift going for an LCOG look for the mean time until I save up for a lift.

Ive heard of interco and bfg being somewhat close can someone shed some light on this?

Go with the 33/10.50/15 BFG M/T. It's a great tire. But if that is not what you want, give us more details on your lift combo with what trans you have, kind of lift, trimmed fenders or not. Details man details!

Ok. What kinds of wheelin' do you do? 35's can fit, your rig can flex, you just have to make sure you bump stop properly to run 35's. Both brands you asked about will get the job done for you, but IMHO, i would run the BFGs. Traction is good in all types of trails, and they will generaly last longer the Swampers.

Bfg AT's or km2 do extremely well on trail and highway and will get better mileage than a 12.50" wide tire.
