Great! Thanks for the info! Anyone think I should get different tires?

thanks!
this would be up to you and your wallet. but IMO, the BFG's are a great tire. they should suit you well for your off roading pleasure. but again, it is entirely up to you.

If your running mud often I would go with a different set of tires. However, any other type of wheeling they do well. The price on those bfg's is a great price. U will love the DC-1's they look great especially in person. I think the BFG's are recommended for a 7-8.5 inch wheel. The DC'1s are 16x8's which will be fine for that tire. Are you getting the polished or black?

I was thinking polished but I really like the black too. I also really like this setup:

WHeels:
Panther EMR 440
17x9" 4.5" backspacing

Tires:
33x12.50R17
Mickey THompson Baja Claws

I assume that this needs a lift and a body mount chop. Am i right?

Nice Rig!!

So I need the chop. What about a lift? Can I get away without one?
It's all going to depend on the wheel and the tire you choose. If you choose a 16x8 wheel and a stock size tire then no chop and no lift. However, if you go to a 17x9 and a bigger tire you will need the chop and lift.

I run the 285/75/r16 on 16x8 TRD wheels with no body chop, and hardly ever rubs even on the trails. The only time it rubs is if I turn the steering all the way and have the tire all the way into the fender, even then it barely touches the body mount. :cool:
