okay, I had my fun with the bias claws but turns out everyone was right on about how fast they wear out. I've had mine for about 3 months now and I'll probably get 6-8 months total out of them. They are awesome on the rocks and they are so strong that I havn't been carrying a spare, just a good plug kit which I've yet to use. But the jeep is also my daily driver... so...
I'm going to be switching back to radials when it comes time for me to get new tires
I've posted this question on a couple of forums to try and get as much info as possible... which radial tires have the strongest sidewalls and also grip well on the rocks?
I need to keep it to... height of approx 37"... 12.5"-13.5" width... for a 15" wheel
cooper stt, toyo mt, maxxis trepadors, etc... none of those are available for a 15" rim or if they are they are way too wide at 14.5"+
that leaves me with basically the following:
- the 37" TRXUS are about $250 per tire... 19/32 tread... are 12.5" wide... 37.2" around... and weigh about 72lbs
- the 37" IROK radials are about $270 a tire... 21/32 tread... are 12.5" wide... 36.9" around... and weigh about 77lbs
- the 37" Baja Claw radials are about $335 a tire... 22.5/32 tread... are 13" wide... 36.9" around... and weigh about 83lbs
so, perhaps the radial claws are the better and stronger from reading that data about the width, weight and tread depth. They sure are pricey though.
any other tires I'm missing that you could recommend... if youve run any of these three tires, let me know what you think. And if youve run two or more of these tires, I definately want to hear your opinion.
