Have the local Discount Tire pricing out the Fuel Militia 17x9 -12 and the STT Pro 37x13.50. I just decided I will make the truck fit the tires. :p


EDIT: Both of those wheels and tires are on backorder currently with no ETA. I'm starting to even look at 18" options. Something like the Fuel Zephyr in 18x9 -12 would look really nice on the truck. Looking at possibly the Yokohama Geolandar X-MT in 37x13.50x18 as well.

Put the order in today at Discount Tire. Setup with be Black Rhino Sentinel wheels in 17"x8.5" with -10 offset in Desert Sand with black lip edge and Yokohama Geolandar X-MT tires in 37"x13.50". Should arrive sometime next week. Will remove the TPMS sensors from my current setup and re-use my current black spline drive lug nuts as well, then put new valve stems in the current setup to sell. Should be pretty awesome looking.

Geolandar X-MT's ended up only have 3 available, but the Cooper STT Pro's finally came off backorder, so they gave them to me for the price they sold me the Geolandar's. Will still be 37x13.50x17. Discount Tire also let me know the wheels came in, so I'll probably go check those out tomorrow while I'm waiting for the tires still.

Those X-MT's are probably the roughest driving tire out there. Amazing off road and in mud but they ride like a knobby dirt bike tire on the street. I'd say bullet dodged.

I don't really put a lot of miles on, so I wasn't too worried about that, but I'm sure the STT Pro's will ride a lot better. The STT Pros are a little bit taller as well which is ultimately what I was looking for. Wanted something more aggressive than the BFG T/A KO2 that still rode decent, but was more of an actual 37" tire, and the STT Pro is that. I was hoping they would come in white letter, but in 37" they don't.

Got the wheels and tires put on Thursday and got the spare in the roof rack with the Y-strap I ordered from Amazon. Loving the new look!

How much of a pain in the @ss was it getting that 37 up there?

Actually, it wasn't that bad at all. I folded the Softopper down, tossed the spare into the bed, hopped into the bed, then tossed it into the basket. Will I want to do that when I'm older? Probably not, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. lol Once you're standing in the bed the basket is only a bit above waist height, so it's not too bad.
