They will do just fine. 35's would be the max for reliability on that front D30. A light weight 36-38 tire for the D44 out back.

Usually yes.

But it depends on your driving style and how you'll be using your rig.

i agree, a couple local guys have broken D44 shafts with 35's
based on their extremely aggresive driving styles and have since
upgraded to alloys, and then there are people running 35's and
37's with no problems, just dont over do it

there are a couple of guys running 37s in our group one had currie 9s and the other two have 44s F/R. Im not a very aggressive driver on the rocks but do you think like a Goodyear 37 inch would hold up to F/R D44s? Maybe even throw some Alloy shafts in there? just curious I want to be bigger in the future for as cheap as I can. Was thinking about building 60s on the side but think that would take a long time and real expensive

If you are gonna run 37" MTR's I think you will be fine with 44 F/R Put some good Ujoints in the 44 and the rear will probobly hold up OK as long as you are not giving it hell...

Just another soccer moms Grocery getter....
