Yeah I know - I'd think it would be smarter to release all the smaller wheel sizes first as thats what would be bought more.

Well with all of the new trucks coming out with 18+ size wheels. I'm sure that's what they had in mind when they decided to go that route.

That's actually the one on the top of my list. I thought I'd throw this option out there to see if anyone had any real world experience with them. I'm starting to think Irok radials might be on my rig soon.

I know the bias ones are pretty darn tough, you would think the radial ones would be killer, for a DD.

I've heard really good things about the bias and I've never heard of anyone complain about the radials. I think the radials might be the ticket.

Being radial should last longer, in your kitchen. Those counter tops can be hell, on tire wear............

Seriously though Scout on the topic of Bias vs Radial. You don't daily drive your rig and when you get out you trailer it mostly don't you? I would think you'd want to move to the bias market and the home of the 8 and 10 ply sidewall?

Don't Bias tires get flat spots if they sit for long?

You're right it's not a daily driver. However I do drive it every now and then and warming up a flat spot in the tire isn't really desireable to me. Besides I don't do anything too hardcore anyway. I think even the Irok radial would be a little too much...but maybe just enough.

Seriously, I did not know that you were mostly towing your heep. If that is the case, go all out, and get the bias plies. As Jack said, they are extremely tough on the side walls. And you can air them w a a a a y down, compared to radials. Don't worry about flat spots, they come right out, very quickly. (And they are cheaper)

Hell Scout. Joe was running Blue Label radial Krawlers on the JK for awhile and they even flat spotted on him every morning. Iroks are good tires and are cheaper than any other similarly sized tire. Hackle runs biased Iroks in the 39.5" variety and they last forever and are tough as hell.

Both Joe and Hackle have occasion to run their junk on the road every now and then and neither have dramatically ruined their bias tires by putting "a few" road miles on them.

Trigger = Pulled. 36x13.5 R16 Iroks are on the way. I searched online for days and after all of that I found a smoking deal with a local vendor.

Scout is happy.

If the black steel wheels don't sell then I'll keep them. I also still have the factory Moabs but I'm still partial to the steel wheels. I'd sell the wheels with the tires if it helped the tires sell.
