Hey Jim maybe you should start hanging tires on your living room wall and take the deer heads down. I bet those tires could be prize winners. You can call the amount of knobs, points. These tires could be a 36 point roller at 58"s. You can hang one over your mantle. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/nana.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I was saying that most of the trucks in that area are running 38's or bigger. those are actually 63" according to the owner of the truck.
