I have also been considering taking the spare out from under the truck and buying 3 bfg long trails.I just don't like the look of them that much. I was told that the longtrails were not designed to run the black wall out. The comment about the clearanvce, wouldn't I only lose 5mm of clearance? That shouldn't rub should it? I don't think I'm going to do it just because my wife drives my truck some and who knows what factor is still in there. Does anyone know where the cheapest place to buy bfg at ko's online?
