Oh ok my g1's have lasted my 30k miles so far and are probably only half way thru, so the g2's should last even longer.

So after all that's said and done I'm getting what works best. $190-$250 max each range. Def looking at nittos. Going to be my summer a/t's. What size can I run. I know I keep asking this lol but I'd rather not cut anything. And Im going to be running a two inch rc lift. I know I will need spacers.

Hmmm something around 31 to 32 then.. greenwayer is running 31s on 20s so something like that or could fill it a little more with a 32. No spacers on his rig but the offset on the rims might different.

Actually I ran my setup on stock suspension with minimal rubbing too. I'm tired of shit breaking so I'm getting rid of my 2 in lift and dropping it down to a 1 in lift.

Ripping thru cv's, went thru 5 of them on the drivers side, and 3 on the passenger and messing up my tie rod ends. Alignment gets messed up quickly. Caused my rear springs to sag. Then yesterday my upper ball joint broke and this happened while driving.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1419131152.501729.jpg
