Pizza cutter tires

I have Super Swamper 34 by 8.5 by 15s right now. I'm looking for another option that's a little bit less aggressive and something that will wear a little bit less for daily driving. I would like to stick with Pizza cutters. I haven't found anything with 15 inch rims . Any other suggestions in 16 or 17 inch rims?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't pizza cutters thin tires on small rims? or at least thats what I've been told. But it's not just the small rims and thin tires.. it's a lift that's been added and the tires don't fill the gap correctly. We drove on pizza cutters for 2 years (16'' factory steels w/ 31'' thin tires on a 2 lift) Handling wasn't that great and we had to take corners slower than normal.

not that i have seen in a long long time. Other then Iterco.

Pizzas were just narrow tended to be no more then 9.5 wide 33/34/35s. I used to use them always on our 87 Suburban 4x4. they were radials and handled just fine. back then they were BFGs in a 9.5. No more no one really makes them anymore. at least that i have seen in a long time and the ones that are are Bias.

I don't think the size of the rims matter, I think it's just narrower tires

I'm open for suggestions on 34 inch tires that are 9.5 inch wide.

That tire size is really an oddball size. I mean when I was searching for new tires I wasn't willing to go the 12''+ route. More over I wanted something thinner but not too thin. These Nitto Ridge Grappler's are 10.5 on 17 x 8.5 and thats right were we wanted them. The trouble I see happening, Like it did with our factory 31's tires on 16'' steels is that these dueler tires flex back, forth, side to side to an extreme which I didn't like. So this is an issue you may encounter if you put too thin of tire on too small of rim.

Unfortunately most everything close to that size is going to be a load range E tire. you can look at 235/85-16 or 235/80/17 which come out to a approx a 32X9 tire and is run on most dually pickup trucks. BF Goodwrench does make a 34X10.50-17 TA KO2.
