Hey Stan.
We need to add springs and shocks to that order. Dave's jeep rides like a buckboard with those 3 inch hockey pucks above the springs. Something to make it smooth. I'll call you Wed.

Looks great Stan! Sorry you couldn't make the trip, but the shops really coming together. Once it's open it will mark the end of any extra money I may have... Maybe I need to set up payroll deduction for parts..

Thanks Bill, lots of work but were pretty excited about the opening. I'll talk to Paychex about that deduction for you!

I was joking guys. We tried this at SCAT Cranks when I was there. Guys would back out at the last minute or miss payments and want their money back. It was a big hassle to keep track of the cash and we needed a totally separate account to keep the money in. The CFO hated it and it finally got dropped.

So Stan could you solve a dilemma for dave and I. He wants plush. He has 35/1250/17 toyo open country extreme e rated tires. I am thinking we go to 35/1250/15 MTRK's with a C rating. We can do a 35/1250/17 mtrk with a C as well but we pick up an extra inch of side wall this way with the 15.

You'll also save $100 / tire by going with a 15" over a 17". Only problem with the 15" is there aren't a lot of wheel choices available in 15". You also need 3.75" backspacing on a 15 vs. 4.5" for a 17".

I have the 15" combo because I wanted more sidewall as you mentioned. The big thing for me was saving $400. Figure if you wear out the tires and get a new set, you save $400 each time.

He'll love it. Another bonus is it makes the tires look larger because of the sidewall.

Pretty sure Stan put the same tires on their orange Rubi.

I'm confused, why would you need 3.75" bs on a 15 vs. 4.5" for a 17? I thought bs requirements was more related to tire width vs rim diameter?

4.5" isn't enough to clear everything. I think it will interfere with the brake calipers with 4.5" on a 15.

Not really much choice anyway: If you look at all the wheels for the JK in a 15", all that I've seen have the 3.75" BS anyway. However, I think this is only an issue on the '12 and above. I don't think it's a problem on the earlier models.

See this thread for a list of wheels known to work (and not to work):

I have 15" Allied beadlocks and wish every day they were 17"s. 1" of extra sidewall on a 35" + tire is not going to make any difference.

My dilemma is that you can't get an MTR or KM2 in a 37 for a 15. If you could, I would have them right now. I just ended up settling for a new set of 35" KM2s.

If you are truly NEVER going bigger than 35" then it's probably no big deal.

When they had the old style MTRs, they had 37x12.50x15s, but no more. I ran them on my sand rail in the high desert.

Yeah, I know Stan. I wish they stuck with that size in the new style. Used sets pop up here and there on CL and Pirate but I was already playing the game of chasing down used BFG KMs to match what I had. Those are getting scarce too so I just said f-it and bought a set of something I can get any time.

I'll just stick with what I have until I go one tons and 42s.

That is a downside. However, I figure I will go through at least one more set of tires before moving up to 37's. So I will have saved $800 by sticking with the 15's. Plus, figure many will never move to 37's.

Plus, I got cheap wheels (MB TKO) because they're just going to get thrashed anyway. My wheels were around $85 each.
