Was looking at those on moes last night and seemed the be the closest size. Just not sure regarding the puncture resistence as well as fitment on a 8" width rim.

With that being said, I bought mine from discount tire and I got a 40k mile warranty with them!!!! Time to go back and see WTF is going on with this dang tire wear problem...LOL
I would look into these if i run staggered 18" on the rear and 17" on the front. Just not much there for 17's

Kumho makes a DR thats decent and wont break the bank....since ur gonna eat em up I suggest these. As for the Nitto's Ive heared nothing but bad news about these. And really any Drag tire is going to suck on gravel and in water so dont spend a grip on em if ur not using them as their intended.

I used MT Slicks on my race car and they HOOKED LIKE A MF. LOL I currently have a brand new set of MH with stickers on em still...to bad they wont fit lol.
Umm what about running rear snow tires lol. Poor man DR's :P
