I have a line on wheels to single out Sarabell (M818 ) but want to make sure I am getting ones that might work.GetAttachmentThumbnail.jpg
You bright guys, are these combat wheels? Any problem with them on an 809 series? I assume the fronts will need hemtt wheels?

Thanks guys.
Will I need to remove the runflat lines or how do they work on the m809 series?
No runflats or beadlock inserts on the standard 1100 tires on an 809 series. You can obtain runflats and inserts for the combat wheels but not required.

I need to get my eyes checked.

Yes you would need to remove them or replace the valve stem. The standard LMTV valve stem will not accept a valve cap as they are smooth bore.

I have replacement valve stems listed in the classifieds for cheap

365/85r20 is another option....about 2" shorter than the 395 and I see some reasonable prices on XZL Michelins.

A lot of guys are switching to 395’s. Lots of tires available.

I just cant get past the look of them after switching to 16.00’s. Even the 14.00’s look kind of small to me. Yeah, I’m spoiled. That’s just my opinion and experience. Your mileage may vary ... literally.

My 14.00R20's are getting a little thin in the tread....I will probably go down to the 395's. I am always towing heavy so the 16's prob won't work for me. I am dreading going smaller.....the 16's just look super bada$$.

You can regroove them and add more life to them. Around $150 for the tool and blades
