I think they are the very large size of the BFG KM2 Mud snow tires. I have seen that picture before!

I'm going to say it's not a BFG Krawler.

Initially thought so but think you need to cross over the 300 line.

I guess I should have said 315/75R16 but just wrote 35's to sound tuff. Technically you are more correct as a 315/75R16 GY Duratrac measures just less than 35" according to their online specs sheet.

Regardless that Doublecab is dope. Like ST's I think the doublecabs look great with big tires.

Probably give a 90 a moon buggy look.
