Which of these Do You think will work for Me?

I'm thinking that going with the 29-30" tire will help out the 3:31's a little. And all these tire's will fit a 8" rim, with a section width that should be no problem.

Re: Which tire's would You buy?

I'd recommend the round, sticky, black ones with the sides that wrinkle up real cool like when you hit them with a big dose of horsepower.

Other than that Dave, I haven't the foggiest idea.

I'm second hand Charlie. I run whatever comes with the package deal.

I'd buy 32-14.5-15's, any brand, if I had a car they'd fit, like fat tire's 3 cars.

I'm thinking some 30x9 or 10 Hoosier's are in the near future, after today's trip.
