Dude, as impressed as i am with the fact that you are interested in going to
a "real" tire (hehe) i can't see those fitting on your Dak and you still
being able to drive it....
As soon as you hit a bump in the road the tire is going to be forced up
through your fenderwell.
That's not even talking about going off-road with them on. You'd have no
fenders left at all after a few nice bounces. ;)
