Did you do that to the fenders?! Do they stuff that much? Might just need bump-stops no?
Yeah, this is how up it goes. I'm already running 3/4" bump stop spacers so it doesn't go into the metal fender. The stock flares are almost 2" tall so spacing the bump stop further will be just throwing away suspension travel.

This is officially the most satisfying-looking tire stuff photo ever.

Pitbull Rocker Radial Tires

Picked up these wild 35 Pitbull Rocker Radials from Craigslist earlier this week. I paid $300 for all 5. 1 is whiskery new with 22/32 tread. 2 are 17/32 and 2 are bald with 12/32. Manufactured in April 2016. It was a pretty good deal. What's more lucky was Pitbull was having 50% off sale on their website ending that day. So i ordered 2 new ones to replace the bald ones.

The shoulders on these bad beast are just radically mad with zero f given. They make my 35 General Grabber X3s look like sensible all terrains tires. So you ask why I'm ditching my newly installed Grabber X3s? Wait to see what wheels I'm getting:wink

Are they gonna be more of an offroad only tire? Or will you run them more often? Hope your fender flare trimming is good. If not it will be done for you. :D
I'm gonna see how they works out. Might keep my old set for "overlanding". I need to trim my rear flares as well now. Those are some killer lugs.

I was hoping one of you would swoop on those. That deal was screaming and now I'm looking forward to them howlin' tires!
Lol yeah. Glad i pull the trigger, even though i just got a brand new set of 16" 35s. Glad I'm still single lol.

So…I decided to give up on mounting the Pitbulls. I just don't have enough balls to do more cutting and fitting. The side lugs and deep tread bite hard on rocks but also fenders.

I'm posting them for sale on Craigslist for 500. But if any forum members here with higher quantity of balls want these badass tires, I'll sell them do you for 300, which was what I paid.

Bead Lock Wheel Install

So I chickened out and sold the Pitbulls. After looking at all different MTs and current promotions, I bought the General Grabber X3s again in 35X12.5R17. But this time, I got those horse power adding red letters:wink

Following the instructions from the internet, the process went pretty well, except for i forgot to put in the balancing media on the first one lol. So i had to take it apart and re-torque 24 bolts. There are plenty install videos online so I did a short time-lapse shot just for viewing pleasure.

I will be heading to Appalachian Toyota Round-up on 8/30 to test out the beadlocks for the first time. Anyone here going?
