Its 75% tread, the 36" tires are bias ply where as the 37" are radial, read people had a lot of problems with balancing the 36s

Thats why i passed on them. Then they are known to be heavy and flex poorly. I decided 35's are big enough for me. Anything bigger and i need more hp again.

Not really. 4.56's and 35s isnt bad at all, so 37s and 4.88s will probably be right around how mine is right now

Ya mine was kinda a slug with the 35x15.5 swampers. Then i had those borrowed 32's for a week or so and it was like i got a shot of nitrous. I need to go up to 4.88 or so though. Would help. 4.10's and 33's are ok, 35's not so much.

I dont mind the 4.10's with 35's as much as i think it would be nicer with 4.88's. My highway cruise speed is still way low r's. I get almost better fuel mileage in 4th than 5th.

If your going military tires step up to the military mtr the original mt is not a very good wheeling tire. I did alot of research plus have a few friends with them. Very very stiff sidewall but weak at the same time rock wise. Dont forget you need the pvc inserts that adds 50 bucks a piece to the price. And he quoted me about 250 to ship them up here

So the new bb/mc works phenomenally.. takes minimal effort to stop, just resting your foot on the pedal with no additional pressure and you're stopping nicely. Can't wait to see how well they hold the jeep on nasty drop offs.. the old setup didnt hold well at all.. foot to the floor and they'd be creaking
