Default super swamper m16 pics and wheel offset question

im thinkin bout goin with a 2 in. level and AAL real soon and gettin the m16s in a 37 13.50. my 1st question is i have 20x10(i think lol) with a -24 offset which makes the tire stick OUT and i was wonderin if a 37 13.50 will fit without major rubbing issue with a offset that big or should i go with a 37 12.50 like a trail grappler or somethin? my 2nd question is for those of you runnin the m16s how do you like them? how long will they last on the street? and could yall post up some pics of your trucks with the m16s on them? preciate it!!

u might still rub a little bit on the frame with the wheels fully cranked man, but other than that i dont think itd be that bad. ive heard good things on the M-16s, nothing firsthand tho

Sorry to drift off topic, but I'm liking the Warthog - that is on beast of a bird.

I'd say go with the Swampers [Interco = American, based in Louisiana], but you may be pushing the side clearance limits with a 13.50. You may also want to take a look at similar purpose tires from General, Good Year, and Cooper as a few other American brands (though hardly any of the stuff is produced on our soil). I'll also admit that BF Goodrich KM2s are solid [French: Michelin].

I'm on the Jeep Forum and lots of guys over there run TSL Swampers and Thornbirds - cousins to the M16s and I hear nothing but positives regarding sidewall durability and traction, though they are not cheap and are supposed to be relatively loud on the highway. Interco claims that it rides like an A/T on the freeway, but I've never known their lineup to be decsribed as "smooth" - I'd be interested to hear how they actually ride on pavement.

Not all that interested in any other brands like you named but what you mean side clearance limits? Sayin I should go with a 37 12.50 instead of a 37 13.50?

I think you would definetly have some rubbing issues with 37's. You have to remember that the M-16's have some pretty gnarly side lugs too.
