Looks like you have it figured out, now if only someone would get off of their butt and get their D60 swapped in.

I am going to stick with a Dana 30 till (if) it breaks, and then go to a Jeep Rubicon D44. I am going to keep this thing stock width, and use Jeep parts as they are readily available and cheap.

I was wondering that. That's what I'd do, if you put fullsize axles under there you'd never be able to "legally" drive it on the road.

a 255/85/16 is, do the math.

"255" has nothing to do with the height, its how wide the tire is. here, let me try to explain.

255/85/16

section width = 255/sidewall aspect ratio = 85/wheel size = 16

section width = sidewall to sidewall in millimeters/sidewall aspect ratio = percentage of section width(determines height(distance from bead to tread))/wheel size



clear as mud?

I don't know how long it took me to learn all that. Stupid metric system, wasting my brain cells.
