Do you think I can get them to fit with minor fender trimming? They are not to far from me and $500 is a great price!

Yes, you should be able to. However, you need to get new wheels in 16" rather then your 15's.
True, for that price you should get them.
Good luck,

I have 16" rims I would need 20" rims for those bad boys. Do they make 20" spinners that can handle 52" tires?

I was just playing with you

As for the 20" spinners, anything is possible with $$$

Well in that case then I'll make some spinners out of quarters and 1/2 dollars and save myself some cash!

Those tires look a little heavy, what do you think the local tire shop would say if I rolled in on those and asked to have them balanced and rotated.

And do we all agree that the stock spare tire holder can handle the weight of a 52? You guys will help me change it if I get a flat on the trail right? Guys! Guys! hey where did you all go?

Those bad boys you would have no trouble mounting yourself and then the BB trick would take care of you. Imagine trying to cary a spare anywhere on the truck. No way. You would not need one anyway. Run it with beadlocks, even flat the sidewall would not bend completely, 9-ply! I want them

LOL...I saw that too Randy...

With our wheelbase being as it is, I think those tires will hit each other....

Glenn, LOL I can just see it one tire rubbing the other LOL!

Dave I just want too see the look on the tire guys face when he sees the tires. I know most people who run these bad boys also run 2.5 ton axles but I think my Rover axles are up to the task.

Randy, we have a few leads but nothing concrete yet. I'll let you know as soon as we get them. Thanks!

WOW Glenn! I thought you would have better flotation with those on your 90. I'm glad too see they fit without rubbing. I like the monster truck approach you took to get them to fit (tire outside of the wheel well). What did you use 12" spacers? And Yousef you are right they will fit on a 16" rim!















ROTFLMAO

It's all about low center of gravity Randy....

Actually, you guys might not have noticed, I've since removed the front drive shafts. It's not that clear in that picture, but I have a little round gear with teeth that matches the lugs in the tires. It sits in between the front and rear tires. The front tires are "driven" by the rear tires via that special gear and the super stiff lugs!!! Now that's innovation!

WOW Glenn you really put some though into this, since the fronts are driven by the rear you must have some kind of selectable locker in the rear to drive one side or the other to steer right? You must have used an axle off of a snow groomer, as they are capable of this. Is yours hydraulically controlled? Did you buy the PTO adapter from Maxi to run your hydraulics or do you use a DC motor and pump?

Well we thought big was big but look at these bad boys they measure about 64"x28". Now some may say we are getting a little excessively big but you never know when you might have to drive over a house or something.
