    130/80-18

    On an 18x3.5 wheel.

    No doubt a 140 would clear. Probably have to be a little careful with fender bolt length thru the struts depending on suspension height.

    That sucks, sorry for your loss. Real bitch when it hits that young!

    My brother in law passed just out of high school. I think he was 20. Never knew anything was wrong, he just got a scratchy voice that kept getting worse. Tumor on a vocal chord. He held on a couple years after that. Never was a tobacco user.

    Joel was a pretty clean guy, yeah, he drank some beers and smoked a little weed, and had a good time.

    Having some ringing in his ears. Brain cancer.
    Had it removed, went 12 months, had the dead tissue from the many radiation treatments removed, as it was causing seizures. Then another surgery to add a drain, 2 big seizures and a stroke.

    Removed from life support 1am Wednesday, he succumbed at about 2:45.

    He leaves behind a wife and a beautiful 1yr old daughter.

    Some shit just ain’t right.

    Joel knew who was with him in the end, he now rests in peace. You're a good dude Colby.

    You'll get to share some great memories with his child someday, you'll help paint the picture of 'dad'.

    Very very sorry Colby!!
