    Stickies on the road?

    Would you run stickies on the road? Not DOT approved aside, i am considering the 40" Trepadors but am questioning the fact that they are stickies and i intend on driving the TJ still on the road from time to time.
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!

    No problem driving them on the road on a relatively light vehicle. Just remember that they aren't really highway rated and are manufactured accordingly. They have a very soft compound and pliable carcass. They are going to build a lot more heat as a result. I would not be concerned about those tires on a heep but a heavier vehicle could be an issue. But sticky treps aren't cheap and they are going to lead a short life with street time. It's almost worth running a 2nd set of tires for the street and stickies for the trail.

    I thought you could get Trep stickies that were DOT? And they made the KOH EMC rule people's heads explode?

    Edit; You can, M8060 for instance is available in a 37" or 40" bias but it's only speed rated L (75 mph/120 km/hr). But, they ain't cheap.
