32" Wheels on stock suspension

Good morning, was able to snap this on the highway today, and I'm wondering how could he fit a 32" wheel with the stock suspension.

Re: 32" Wheels on stock suspension

I know "to each their own" but doing something like that makes absolutely no sense to me.

Geezus...

Running a setup like that is like regressing back to a horse drawn wagon.

Re: 32" Wheels on stock suspension

I think that tire mounts like a rubber band or like a gum stick... no air needed

I agree, this must be the most uncomfortable ride EVER.

Re: 32" Wheels on stock suspension

How do you keep from bending those hitting an expansion crack or pothole? You can't avoid them all.
