i've heard very bad things from military guys about street driving with those tires.

these are by buckshot, you can check them out by searching buckshot tires

You can't run those tires on pavement. You would never hold the road with the slightest dampness. Also, they don't perform off road.

those suck but if you are restoring an old military willies jeep that is what you want to use

why not get these military hummer tires they go for about $100 each for a 36"
and are all about 80-90% tread on them
and they are a goodyear tire

i'd bet the surplus hummer military tires are very heavy, and thick. and probably flex very little. they're made for a heavy hummer, and made to be abused and last. i'm not sure how useful they'd be. but they look cool.

Forget trying to balance a military tire. I think that last one I saw that came thru the shop I worked at has about two pounds per tire.

im too cheap to change the gears beside i think they are 4.11. even with 31's my jeep is almost floored maintaining 65mph. if i run 37's ill probably never use 5th gear i guess it wont matter but then acceleration off the line is gonna suck...worse
