40's or bigger

He guys I am looking for radial tires that are 14.50 to 15.50 wide and 40 or taller.... I have 16.5 rims but willing to go a different size like 17 or 18's maybe 20's if i can't find 40 or taller 16.5. I am curently running the swamper sts (new) that are 38/15.50/16.5 my gearing is 4.88, so I need a taller tire. Anybody point me in the right direction for brands that make a good radial that 40-42 tall...thanks

Tires

Swamper makes the Radial Irok in a 41 14.50, and I believe BFGoodrich is making the KM2 in a 42 now, but I don't remember how wide it was.

Is 4.88 good for 40s? Or 4.56 better?

i run 4:56 on 40's and i like it. you run about 2100 at 70 and gives the big truck a good extra kick at low end. when you start hittin around 90-100 your rpm's are about 3k and the truck dont want to much more. maybe someone that runs 4:88 has some insight for you. but thats my 411.

Interco, Mickey Thompson, and I think Parnelli Jones make tires 40 inches tall in 16.5!
