Can anyone guess what tires I got? 10 points to the winner. And if you already know (Troy...) then you can't guess.

Here is a hint, they are in the 36"x13.50 flavor, and the type starts with an I and ends with a ROK.

:)

Traded my 5 Baja claws, some chrome steel wheels, and a couple other small things, + $219 (which I paid $100 of, the other $119 will be paid by a friend, and I will repay him with a traction bar).

New tires for $100 ain't bad, now I just need a spare.

You are behind the times John :)

And Studnuts doesn't read very well apparently :D

The tires were pad balanced at Galloways, they ride awesome, a SLIGHT vibration at about 60 MPH and above on the speedo (probably 65-70), which is no big deal since that is as fast as I will need to go with them. They ride MUCH better than the Claws, I can run 30 PSI in them where I had to run about 17 in the front claws because they were so balloon'd it gave my truck the 'shakes' at times.

It would be nice to have a little more highway gear, but I can run 60 at about 2500-2700 RPM in 4th gear, no more 5th gear for me :)

That is all fine though, since they are basically trail-only tires, I will only have to really 'suffer' with the 4.10 gears on the trails until I get dual cases. I will not regear the axles because then that would screw me up when I am running 33" street tires which I run 90% of the time.

We will see how the do on dry rocks, in the mud they did alright I guess, but it is kind of hard to tell. I was running about 8 PSI, but think I could go lower without having any problems.

Yea John, the guy that made the site thought the flatbed pic was better since I had the mud tires on it instead of the street tires.

Once I get a good pic of my truck when it is clean with the 36's on it I will probably get him to change it.

Here is your (fairly) clean pic.

BTW, yesterday at URE I encountered some minimal rubbing, but nothing much. I will probably trim a little bit behind the front tires, but it shouldn't take much.

It was all muddy, didn't really matter what you drove, all that mattered was how much throttle you gave it, and apparently I didn't give enough. No harm in taking it easy, I would rather keep driving than end up breaking something. I am not afraid to admit I didn't make it up, doesn't bother me a bit. I have been to URE plenty of times with open diffs when I made it up the far right line and many 'Jeeps' could not follow. So what's your point?

Point ??? Just to see if you'd get bent. :D You're too easy Michael. I HAD to razz you , especially after the other guys were giving you a hard time about Jeeps making that line.

You're truck does look alot better with the sides back on. Feel better now ?

Guess I don't catch it on the internet, it is alot easier to see if someone is joking when you are talking to them. Letters don't show it all the time :D

Just go back and notice the 'smilies'. No fingers or red faces, just smilies. Besides, you know me personally, you silly boy. Now I know why my 8 year old son, Quint, likes to pick on you at the Triad M&Gs. Your just to easy. :lol:
