I am in the market for new tires. I kinda want radials, But there are better sizes for my configuration in bias-ply tires. I love offroading my truck, but it is my daily driver. I dont go on the highway too much. Should I stay away from bias-plys if Im not into hardcore offroading?

if its your daily driver bias-plys will wear out extremely fast. probably within a year. what size tires are you looking for and what size rims will you be using with them. you can usually find some kind of a radial tire to work.

well.. im looking for a 37"-38" tire for a 16x8 wheel. the SSR are my only radial choice, which are "E" rated. It says max inflation is 65psi, but what would happen if I ran them at 40psi? And at 40psi they would only measure at 36" too.

The max psi of 65 is probably at a high load. check the tire where it says that ..."max load xxxx at 65 psi" thats the load rating. you will have no problem running lower pressure. actually the best way to find out the best pressure is to power brake to leave a mark. pull forward and look at the mark. if it is skinnier than the tire, let air out. if it is light colored in the middle, need more air in. you want it to be an even mark.

I'd like to see the carnage in the transmission after doing a powerstand with 37-38" tires. I have the tsl radial and run them at 40 psi and still they look a little flat.
