id say go with close to 35s and if you could find a 12.5 width tire that would be good cus skinny tires are just ugly. the 305 look like horrible tread pattern if you drive it often so id say the first ones if you cant find anything with 12.5 width.

tired of cleaning mud up just need good all around performance. the old MTR's are known for that so hopefully these will be the same.
