Default Tall and skinny.

What's out there for tall and skinny tires? Old school tread would be sweet. I saw some Goodyear xtra grip 10.00-20 on our Mack log truck at work. Measures 40" tall. Would love to put something like this on my rig.

What height?

Not a lot out there really.

The 34x9.5 swampers are awesome, they were designed for logging also. And the Q78s are a little taller, about 35.5.

Most of the problem you will run into with 9.00/20s (which are 40" tall), or similar, is that they are very heavy and thick sidewalls that dont flex on a light vehicle.

They had a 34x10.5, I haven't looked into swampers in some years tho. All the bigger ones were more normal width

Yes, forgot about that option 38.5 x 11s, and 35x10.5s, both I have seen used well and the drivers really liked these tires.
