If you guys didn't have an on/off throttle switch, R&P might last a little longer... Lol

Should b at the woof woof party sat.depends on work though. Rocking some old 39 iroks. Had my mind made up for some 43's. After talking to a bunch of the southern guys think I'm going with the sticky 42 irok or maybe a sticky 42 MTR. Until I upgrade the front axle I'm not going to get the 43's. I want to keep it light also.

I would think a sticky 42 would take more of a toll on things than a non sticky 43 but I don't wheel so I'll leave that one up to the people that do.

Big difference in weight Brandon. I think turning more mass would b harder on parts. But I'm just wing in it.

43x14.5x17 SX 121lbs
42x14.5x17 MTR 91lbs
42x14x17 IROK 97lbs

Irok sidewalls are garbage and you know you have issues with sidewalls, 42" mtrs are hard to get a hold of and $$$$. I still think you're best bet is the 43" non sticky but I'm just winging it too Get some of those 17" bling lightweight racelines that TC breaks and you'll have a wheel/tire weight lower than the sticky 42 on a steel weld on beadlock.
