on a side note even though I have these 22s im really considering 18's or 20's now that everything has taken off in this direction. At the start it was going to just be 22s with 285/55/22 trail grapplers and a daystar front leveling kit. WOW this escalated fast HAHA

ALSO do you guys reccomend 35s or 37s with a 6" lift.

AND last who has the best prices on my list? always looking for the best deal
I like smaller rims with bigger tires, also allows more rubber to protect the rims.

With a 6" 35's and 37's both look awesome so can't go wrong there. Bilsteins are an awesome ride and great product.

Give the guys at Bully's Performance a shout and see what they can do for you. I got my tires and bilstiens from them, and will be getting my lift in the future.

With the 22" rims I'd go with 37's for sure, that's a really nice look IMO and is what I plan on putting on my truck eventually. 35's won't give you enough sidewall on the 22's which will look dumb.

So I'd recommend going with the 6" RCX lift and Bilsteins at 1.4" and running 37's. That will be a nice set up. As Canadian Hemi Pride said, shoot the guys at Bully's Performance an email at sales@bullysperformance.com letting them know that you're a forum member and what you want and they'll get a quote to you.

If you're going with a 6" lift AND Bilsteins set at anything above 0, then definitely go with 37's on an 18's or 20's. 22's are for the lowered look in my opinion....

A lot of great info guys I really do appreciate it. I understand what you mean about the 22s but I just showed her other rims in a 18 and she is hooked on the ones I originally bought. I will contact bully's thank you again guys

Default another tire question

Can anyone chime in on the fallen wild peak 37x13.50x22. My wife actually said she liked the look of them for an a/t and for 4 tires @ 1033 shipped I do have to admit I like the price. Has anyone used them or have any pics on a lifted. Only thing I could find in reviews is they are so so in rain. Any replys would be appreciated. Don't get me wrong I love the nittos and toyos but that 2k price point is kinda shell shock

My buddy will only run those tires on his F-350 as they are cheap and last forever. They won't keep up with a M/T off road but will be safer on the road for snow and ice than a M/T.

There is nothing remarkable about the looks but they look better tons than a highway tire. I'd call them an average AT in the looks department.

Even though I have never been stuck, I agree that the Toyo M/T is probably a better tire for mudding or offroading, But I'm assuming it's like other offroad tires, Noiser than the BFG's, a rougher ride, and probably not going to get 70-80k miles out of it. (That's just a guess though). I think both tires have there place, I guess it just depends on what's the primary use going to be.
