I will probably move to a 33x10.5 next go around, but n bigger because of the 35 out back that I chose to invest in.

to keep the weight down, this has got to be my commuter car for college and its a 45 min drive, plus the less weight my d35 see's the better off it is. I may do a 12.5 but if I do it will probably be a duratrac

I have heard amazing things from owners of duratracs.

One guy who wheels alot of hard trails very often claimed they were the best offroading tire he'd ever used

haha, it sure has grown in a year, thanks.

so I got an offer today to swap with a buddy for his 35"s, SOOOOOOOOO tempting, but it's totally asking for destruction in my rear... not a good idea.

im gonna try and get a set of 33"s on here sooner or later. but other than that its gotta stay as is for the most part, my jeep gets to be a commuter car this fall for college.
