It's an internet forum. You have your opinions. I have mine. People who read the threads can choose who to listen to. There are two kinds of people on internet forums. Those who talk a lot and those with actual experience. I choose to listen more to those in the second category.
There's a 3rd kind. Those, who in spite of actual experience, still make silly statements about 15" wheels with big tires.

I think you guys are both wrong.

There are three kinds of people in this world - those who can count, and those who can't.

Simple question - have you personally ever tried to aggressively stop a jeep on 35" tires (of any type)? Yes or no.

Here's a simple question for you - did you say Hutchinson should warn buyers not to use 15" Rock Monsters with big tires? Yes or no.

So I take it the answer to my question is no.

And the answer to your question is clear in my prior posts. I stand by it.

Probably of no help, but when I get all my swap stuff done this summer I'll be running 37's on the 17" 5x5.5 Hutch's (or Methods, but leaning towards Hutchs) with wheel spacers on a Waggy 44 and 8.8. That's better brakes out of the gate but I'll still be running high quality pads and rotors.

So if a manufacturer makes it then its a good idea? Lots of manufacturers include drop pitman arms in their TJ lift kits. Doesn't make them a good idea either.

I'm really starting to like the ATX AX 195's! Those, or even the Method Race Wheels Mesh.
