Trail-Crawling Needs

Buying new tires and wheels for your 4x4 is an exciting time, even more so if you're planning a much anticipated upsizing. We like to shop tires and wheels even when we aren't looking to buy simply for the pleasure of looking. Exploring the new styles and wide range of sizes often makes us forget that 33s on 15s used to be the norm. With so many tires and wheels to choose from these days we decided to assemble a selection of some that we liked best. From mud to sand to snow and even rock-crawling and racing, these tires and wheels should meet your trail-crawling needs.
