Wooders, what the hell are you up to with your rig?

...that's why I said 40"+ mate...

In my opinion, for decent sidewall flex at a decent pressure (so that hard contact doesn't allow the rim to hit the rocks and be damaged), and decent sidewall stability, 10" would be the minimum amount of sidewall.

I think 10-12" is about where I would like to be, but this also depends on the tire you run (how thick the sidwalls are, radial or bias, width of tire, etc).

Actually, just realized that I am at 11" of sidewall... fancy that.

If I put a set of 40"s on the Jeep with the dana 30 in the front, it will break.. if it breaks then I can justify the diff upgrade and just explain to my gf that another Jeep part failed.. she will understand

TT,
I don't see why not - That was my approach

Shane,
Yeah I know - was just picking on it.
At this stage I'm looking for something in the 40x13R20 size.
20" (rims) to clear the brakes,
13" to match the stock diff tyre width,
40" because that should be a neat fit.
R because I want it road legal and couldn't be frigged running 2 sets of rims/tyres

sure they work great on the buggy's though and if ruff says they are the best and would use nothing else well...
