my point was its really a mute point to change the stt pro's out "due to speed rating"

too much wheel width and too little wheel width will greatly affect 60ft Anthony, you know this. running a 12" wide means you need more air than normal to keep the center of the tire from caving in and loosing traction. too narrow and you dont get the contact patch you could have with out letting alot of air out. then you have the issue of having to put too much air in or not enough to make the tire work for you. i watched plenty of trucks last weekend at the TnT here in phx with horrible contact patches and running these wide wheels with 420's. you can see it on the track. Took some playing with our cummins to get the 10" wide wheels to play nice with the hoosier 30s for 18" rims.

also, 420's were never designed for our trucks so saying its ok to run them on 12" rims via the mfg is sorta miss leading. yes we meet the weight rating but we do not meet the load index

I agree on all points, but I would prefer a rim too wide than too narrow. My truck loves higher psi no matter the tire or rim.

Ya know, back in the late 70s/early 80s we used to jack up the ass of our cars with airshocks and install big tires (by that era's standards -- G60-14s baby!). We did a lot of things when we were younger that we thought were the coolest thing to do, yet nowadays it seems kinda foolish. Age and experience.....

Im not thrilled the whole "diesel ricer" thing is starting to infect this forum, but whatchagonnado? Ban em all?
These kids think its cool (dope? sick? WTF term do you all use now?) even if most of us dont. Racers vs ricers.
I personally dont think stretching tires on a wheel is a wise thing to do.

My 18 y/o daughter uses that term. I wondered what it meant. To me, it means the same as "high". I think we may have used it back in high school to describe being drunk, too.

Just u wait til the build thread comes around, Brian. I'll use it just for the hell-of-it.
