on the bf goodrich website http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/specs...t-a-ko/44.html it says that the recomended rim width for these tires is 8-10" (stock is 7"). now im trying to remember if these rims i bought are 7" or 8" either way, theyre working fine for me right now. i dont know what the negative effect would be with running them on a 7" wide rim

have you done any offroading yet with the new setup? I was wondering how everything worked the way you liked, how it handled?

nothing major, just some dirt roads and minor mud. plenty of traction even in the mud. they are really quiet on the freeway and only rub at full crank. the bottom end is really weak if you keep the stock gear ratio though, not the end of the world but something to consider.
