Haven't looked at anything over 40" , reason I am sitting around the 37 to 38 " is price . + I need to drive it every now and then on a road . I drove Dermies F100 with 45's a few months ago and it was a apsolute pig on the road .

99% sure Centipedes only come upto 36's so they are out. Also 36s have a bad name for not cleaning well with the 3 rows of tread in the center :(

Boggers arebleepon sideslopes, ZERO grip.... and you need numerous neddies to get the best out of them so you have 1 of 2 out of these..

38's are a whole new world of mods to car. Gearing, hacking guards, spacing diffs around etc.

Q78 swampers would be way better than anything else on the list.

Actually, numerous comp people are using 37 MTR's... they are different to 33/35 MTR's..

YMMV...

Have a look at the Mickkey Thompsons, and get hold of a re-groving tool to cut more groves around the centre of treads. As they are they don't clear very well at all in their standard form.
