Default 39.5 Super Swamper radials?

Hmmm. Chevy Lover or Chevy Dreamer?
So on my orange '85, I was thinking about replacing my 36" Super Swampers with 39 1/2" Super Swamper radials.
The only thing stopping me is money. My 36's are mounted on 15" rims and by going to the 39 1/2" I would also need to change to 16" wheels, which is not a bad thing.
I already have 3/4 ton axles on the truck and I had to grind the calipers to fit inside the 15" wheels, so if I changed to 16" wheels I'd have lots of clearance for the calipers.
As I said, the problem is money. The tires alone, (that I've found) are $425 each................to be continued..................

Those would be sweet. Don't they sell them in a 15" tire size? You could always sell me your 36ers to off set the cost of them 39.5's lol.

My brother has about 6" suspension lift on his and a 3" body lift. He is running 39.5's on his truck. Will they fit with just the susp lift? If so deff go for it.

I had a set on a 86 chev full size 4x4 with only a 4" body lift. Had to trim the fenders a bit, but it looked mean as hell.

Interco has 4 15/39.5-17LT TSL's for $202 a piece in the blemish section, I just checked to see what they have and ran across them. That's more than half off!
