PostSubject: Question about 35" tires and knuckles...   Mon 28 Jul 2008, 8:01 pm

If i go with 35" tires will that cause the knuckles to bend. I have heard that they will/can bend. What is the deal...any input and suggestions appreciated!

By the way i'm running 33 1250 R15s right now and i'm trying to figure out which 35" tire i want, but I don't want to go bigger if its going to cause damage. Thanks

on that "other" forum, there have been several post from ppl with 33s & up stating there inner C's have bent from hard wheeling. the kind you like to do lol!

it may be my imagination, but i swear one of mine seems off. i will try a lazer alignment to make sure. they do seem kinda skinny to me though. As cheap as they are ($89.00 /set) the off-road evolution gussets seem like a good investment.
like the chromo axle shafts i got. i never broke a shaft or u-joint, but having stronger shafts that come with stronger u-joints seemed to make sense.

IMHO

Me, George & Jennie are running 35's as are a lot of folks on the other forum. Of course 35's are going to add extra stress on parts, so you will run the risk of breakage. But you run the risk of breakage any time you wheel.

George did break a front axle shaft last time at Shiloh. But he was attempting a difficult climb repeatedly until it broke. Was it the fault of the 35's? That probably contributed to it, but I wouldn't say it was the only cause - Geo's "never give up" attitude and use of the skinny pedal was more likely the root LOL along with the D30 being weak.

I've been running 35s on my D30 and have broken steering gears before, but no driveline issues yet... gusseting the C's couldn't hurt and would be very beneficial I think.

all that sounds about right, if you wheel hard enough 33's will bust a d30 pretty easy

gusset's help for sure ........problem is to install them corectly the whole axle neeps to come apart so the ball joints are not damaged during welding....alot of folks are not doing this, they are keeping the c's cold the entire time , problem is you dont get good welds like that and with out good welds the whole thing is kinda pointless

just my 2 cents

Actually if one knows what they are doing you can weld those just fine without hurting them and have strong welds, I had mine welded on just the way I wanted, then again I have been welding for years so it wasn't that big of a deal, hope to have my own welder here soon.

Highly recommend the ORE C gussets and if you need a place that knows how to do it right let me know.
