Tires
« on: May 23, 2023, 04:44:24 PM »
What's out the for tires that suit a FED that are actually available and in stock? I had been using the Mickey Thompson 33-10.5w-15 until I picked up a nail and ruined a tire. Now I can't find anyone that has a pair in stock. I really need the 33" diameter for ground clearance. Is anyone here running Hoosier 18242 DO5 tires?
