If I had hair, I'd be pulling it out. I had a snow day today so I went to a few places, made a bunch of calls and wrote a lot of emails.
Some of my responses:
Unfortunately in a 37" the wheels need to be 8.5" wide minimum.
(I can't find a steel rim in the size and weight capacity I need)

The maxxis tire your referring to is a load range e. Thatís what I strongly recommend

I do love this tire. My problem is finding a rim to fit that's also got a load capacity of 3000 lb. or greater.
The Maxxis tires are 8.5"-11 and the only wheel I found that has the load rating I want is 8" (AR767 series, 16x8 with 8 on 6.5 AR767882)
I've narrowed it down to a few tires I really like, but the rims just don't fit! I want steel, no alloys and I'd like them to 1, be heavy duty and 2, not flashy, just simple.
Listed below are the tires I'd consider, it's just the rims and matching them up I'm having a hard time with!
I know it's unlikely, but I'd also love the tires to be under 12" width.
Any help would be appreciated!

- Mike - The only steelies Iím seeing in a 17inch is the pro comp with a 4.25 inch backspace and they are 9 inch wide
- Me - And those are 2000 lb right?
(...silence and the end of that convo.)
The steel wheel is rated at 2200lbs per wheel our aluminum wheels are rated at 3500lbs i would recommend these over the steel wheel.

(not what I asked for, but thanks anyway
This is about what I hear on the phone too. I'm starting to think there is no tire/wheel combos for what I'm looking for.. I won't budge on the weight capacity.. I may need to go aluminum or alloy.. BOOO!
And looks like no skinny tires either
