Anything above that, and you really need to look at better axles, sleeves or trusses
Many people are running the stocker on 33/35 tires, and getting away with the occasional snapped CV..
You just have to be real, real easy on the skinny pedal.
so, If I stick to my plan I'll be OK then...
I have 2 sets of rims,
one for wheeling which has 255/75/17 BFG MTs
one for street (light wheeling) which WILL BE 315/70/17 GY Duratracs
Down the road I can upgrade the front axle and maybe sell my upgraded ring and pinion for a few bucks
I just need a bigger area to work or a cleaned out garage... right now all of my stuff/gear from my fun trip overseas is filling up a LARGE chunk of my garage... you'd be suprised how much stuff you acquire when you leave home for a year...
