    help me pick new tires by tonight ~~

    I want to pick up some 40's this evening to take advantage of the stupid US sales going on right now...

    Here's what i am working with

    TJ, hylined and stretched about 5" in the rear
    ORI 14" STX's
    HP SF D60 narrowed to 65" WMS
    CC 14B (63.5" WMS) in the rear

    Gonna run a 4 " backspacing 17" wheels, probably 9.5" wide


    Here are my choices

    Maxxis Trepadors - 40x13.5
    Interco Iroc's Radials - 39.5 X 13.5
    Pitbull Rocker Radials - 41.5 X 13.5
    Maxxis Creepy Crawlers - 40X13.5
    BFG Crawler KX's - 40X14.5
    Goodyear MTR Kevlars - 40X13.5


    I need to still get this jeep into the garage so the larger the tire, the more i have to stuff it into the hylined fenders....
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!

    As much as I love the maxxis and BFG raves on pirate they seem great for dry rock, but from my research of our northern terrain I would go for the pit bull or iroks equally then the MTRs. I have no experience in any of these, just my Web wheeling feelings.

    FYI my next a will be TSL SX in 43 s. Why? I loved my 38.5's so why mess with a good thing.

    SX's were on my list but i am maxing it out already with 40's i think in getting it in the shop. I think i am pushing with 43's

    I had IROC's on my OD build and were amazing but i found them a bit wobbly on the road. On the Rubi before i tore it apart, i had 35's in MTR Kevlars and they were a great tire. I just don't know if they are agressive enough for what i am looking for...

    Thanks for the input......

    I would go with either the Creepy Crawlers or the IROK's. The Crawlers have more meat on them. Both will wear quickly if you drive on the road a lot.
    I just put 37in Creepy crawlers on my rig and the lugs on that tire are amazing, especially on the shoulders - good for both rocks and mud. Only thing is that they are heavy bias ply, so you will really need to run at a low tire pressure if you want to get any real flotation or rock wrap from them. With beadlockers and about 6-8psi they would be awesome on the rocks.

    Load straps do wonders for getting rigs into the shop. It's the route I'm going to have to take!!! Damn 7' doors!!!!!

    What size were the iroks that you found squirrelly? Just inquiring. I'm really try to learn/understand tire treads, grooves and sipping right now.

    37X14X15 if i recall....

    I don't want to do load straps I love the fact that i can drive in / out and just take off for a drive when the weather's nice. With 40's and based on my measurements with the hylines and ORI's, i should be able to still get it in the garage door....

    Heard from a little bird that Offroad Addiction was trying to get the business.
