It's crazy and due to the G tires being staggered they can't be rotated. 22,000 - 28,000 miles is all that I get from a set. Oh well, guess the Jeep won't get any more goodies for awhile. I'm holding off until next month to get the tires for the G, luckily they have a few miles left on them and I don't drive it everyday.
I wouldn't suggest rock crawling with the G tires you will love your mtr's.

Well silly it's about the speeds the potenza tires are designed for. They are 150 mph tires. If you don't drive that fast you can go with a lower tire.

Speed bumps could be considered rock crawling in the G, they're very intimidating sometimes

That's what came on it so I've just stayed with them. I really like the ride and love the way it corners so don't really want to change that with a different tire.

I've got a couple options from members on the G35 forum I'm going to run by my tire guy and see what we come up with.

No, Laguna Seca is 2 hours from here. The suspension is stock, if I was going to track it I would have to do a little modding to make it worthy. lol.

JeepHerz and her Husband have a G35 Sedan and if I remember right he's got a supercharger on it and the suspension is completely re-vamped. I've seen pics on the G35 Forum and it's a beautiful beast!!!!

Just regular 22's? I can check here for you and if I find a couple boxes I can bring them to Calico.

Not true I got 30,000 out of the first set, tire guy about fainted and couldn't believe it. This set I've got 23 almost 24 on. I think I can get a good 25, but won't push it past that since I've got a little uneven wear on the front. I have a favorite off ramp, so the passenger front gets a little rolled on the sidewall

Great picture! They are awesome dogs, except my pure Choc. Lab Mocha. Hes a bad dog, all the time. Lol.

Mike and I have been married 31 years in May, if we ever divorce it will be due to Mocha. Lol, Mike even says if our marriage survives Mocha we know it can survive anything

Thanks Lisa. Just high velocity 22 long rifles. Anything you can get I will buy.

Geri and I had a Golden. He was just this sweet loveable total nut. What a big goober. He finally died at a ripe old age but he was funny.

I use to open road race, 200 mph stuff. I love the g forces. Driving the Jeep has dampened the cornering speeds quite a bit.

Your welcome Ryan. I just love that shop. Lots of work done and not so much as a squeak or rattle from any of their work.
