What would you do ???

My 97 OBS has 16.5" wheels with 37 military tires. I want to keep the same look but want to go with a different wheel/tire size set up. Budget friendly

I would buy 17's because the tire selection is better. Especially for 37x12.5

Thanks for the reply. It looks like 35's on 17" wheels for me, I cant't justify the cost of 37"tires.

Out of curiosity, why not continue running the Goodyear military tires? I bought a set of 16.5 Centerlines for that eventual purpose.

I'm not a serious 4 wheeler. I drive this truck part time to our retreat (200mi) one way every other weekend. The trck had the 37s on it when I bought it.

37" will look great. 35" look smaller, but still good with 6'' lift
