It runs 30x11.50-15's Super Swamper Bias Ply's on Black Steelies at the moment. It runs the typical Ford 5x114 pattern, but requires the larger inner diameter hole for the front locking hubs.

I should take a moment to look at the Dodge's pattern - But, I am busy trying to keep my post count up with you and Tetge! Dammnit. That seems more important at the moment for some reason. :mrgreen:



Wow, those are pretty wide tires on that thing!!

Yeah, you get the typical 30x9.50's or the 31x10.50 sizes. I wanted the extra width, but not the associated height. But Super Swamper had them in a Bias Ply, which was fine for me, as it is now strictly a "Green Sticker" vehicle and although I run only a 8" wide wheel, the tall sidewall allows it to bulge just right. The Sammy has plenty of room for width, it just doesn't need any more height due to gearing and Hp limitations. Besides, no need to get more "tippy" feeling in the thing, when even with just street tires, and the locked rear end, It is almost no fun going anywhere, as it is not a challenge. You have to really get into some crazy stuff to feel like you are "working for it". So, most the time, I just cruise around in 2WD and save the 4WD as my go-to option when I finally do get in over my head. Sidenote: Super neat thing about the custom transfer case I put in it, is that not only do I get the benefit of the lower gear ratio, but it gives me a full "H" pattern, where I can now also select the option of running in 2 "Hi" and also 2 "Low", which is really cool. Normally you only get the "low range" option while in 4WD.

I only have old pictures, but I'll go over in the appropriate section and start a Samurai thread, and drop in a couple pics. Thought you might have already seen it on the other site years ago, but I am more than happy to share and chat about the fun little bugger. :P
