Hello, 2015 viking vi, Stock.

Here for the info available in forums and honest parts reviews. First thing I am needing is some wheels and tires. Looking for a bfg all terrain radial as I run well over 100 miles a week, mostly gravel roads, need longevity and quieter ride. Hoping to go with a 15 inch rim and 28 inch tires, but the squareness of a street tire gives rubbing concerns.

First of all, welcome! There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum, read, read read!


As far as tires go, I went with Motohammers. They are 8 ply, tough as nails, ride very smooth, and so far seem to be wearing very well. I don't have a lift on mine, and am running 27" tires on 14" wheels.
Very happy with my choice thus far.


9" wide in front, 11" wide rear. No rubbing at all.

Look great. I like the more squared look of a truck tire.
