TRUCK GUYS! can i get some help please?

anyone know a good place to get tires?

The guy that owned this truck before me put 16.5 wheels on it, with 35x12.5 tires. (BFG mud terrain KM2 MT) and i would like that same tire. it has lasted me 5 years about about 60k miles.

but i cant find them anywhere....well i can....but only in 16" and 17" only thing i can find in 16.5" is one type of A/T tire. and thats not for me.

if anyone can find these tires (BFG mud terrain KM2 MT) new at 35"x12.5x16.5 i will rep rape the living dog shit out of you!

Check for military surplus. I know the hummers use that wheel. When we (Jeep guys) buy them we get the beadlocked rims and tires for like 250$ but they arent brand new.

I never looked much into it but maybe it will help.

Interco Tires SAM-12 - INTERCO Super Swamper TSL Tire - Quadratec



These wont get you a lot of miles, but search on the site for other tires.


EDIT:


Honestly I would consider new wheels too lol

honeslty they are some knock off wheels as far as i know. they are knock off cragars or american racing rims.

and that discount tire link is the only type of tire from BGF that i can find for my rim. and its not whats on the truck lol. im going to read some reviews on those TSL's and then most likely buy them. thank you!

I had the BFG All Terrain T/A ko on my Explorer... amazing tire. I would highly recommend them. It's too bad you don't have 15s... I have a set of 4 here that I would sell you.
