vince.parker25 Let me completely finish then clean it all up and we will compare. Totally jealous of the rims though.

vince.parker25 The grabbers look soooooo good.
08-03-2013 12:28 AM
vince.parker25 Same. Weird.
08-02-2013 09:07 PM
Rmiller31 The durability is good on the red letters. It has held up good on against the rocks. Just don't use a harsh scrubber on it when you wash.

Was the rim size the same on the 33s and 35s?
08-02-2013 11:51 AM
vince.parker25 Okay. I found something weird. On tire rack 35x12.50r15 are cheaper than 33's? Why?
08-01-2013 01:52 PM
vince.parker25 One thing I've noticed as well I went to tire rack and it seems they don't have a 33x12.50 in a 16 inch rim. The only size is the 315/75r16 which I know is close To a 35.
08-01-2013 01:46 PM
vince.parker25 Huh. That's an interesting point. It says it can be wiped though to help. I wonder if like a good tire shine wax every so often would help.
08-01-2013 09:50 AM
AAONMS One thing to consider is the durability of the Red lettering.

From TireRack.com:
*Red Letter Information and Care Instructions
Red letter sidewall styling is derived from Grabber off-road racing tires and affixed to the tire as a vulcanized label that requires special care and can be damaged by contact with curbs and off-road hazards.
What not to do with the Grabber red lettering:
· Do not use gas, alcohol or petroleum based solvents.
· Do not use direct high-pressure water.
· Avoid rough brushes or any other abrasive materials.
Red Lettering does age during service and may change slightly in appearance:
· If hit by debris or curbs, the red lettering may show areas of damage.
· In the case of noticeable discoloration, the red lettering should be cleaned with special car cleaners designed for rubber and plastics.
· Apply small amount of cleaner on soft towel and carefully wipe evenly over the red lettering.

Bronek 33x12.5x15. No complaints about them whatsoever.

Rmiller31 I'm not sure how they will do on rocks with the softer compound. From what I understand it's made for racing in the desert. I've not looked into the comp version too much so I was just saying my statements were only valid for the street legal version.

If I were going to license the jeep and drive it on the road tho I'd have a dot tire. If someone hits you or you hit them it leaves you open to get sued.

07-29-2013 11:36 AM
vince.parker25 From what I understand. I forget where I saw this. But they have two different tread designs.
You think the soft compound wouldn't crawl well? And I read that they are only released to race teams and you have to know someone to get a hold of them.
07-29-2013 10:51 AM
Rmiller31 Its a comp tire. Off road use only. The 37 isn't dot Approved

Its a softer compound from what I understand so I can't attest the how they would do on rocks
07-29-2013 10:42 AM
WXman I've heard good things about them offroad. The 4Wheel Parts store in Nashville had them on display and they looked great. They can probably get you the larger sizes.
07-29-2013 10:05 AM
vince.parker25 Well this jeep will rarely ever see the road. So I don't mind the fuel. Just a weekend toy so I think we should be good. We get them from a tire guy and he said he didn't stock anything over 35. But a 37" would be really nice. Where do you get the 37"
07-29-2013 08:38 AM
WXman The only bad thing about them is weight. They are heavy as hell. They will absolutely destroy any fuel economy and panic braking ability you have currently. I personally would never run them on a DD. They are way heavier than everything else in their size. Good tires, and tough as nails, but way too damn heavy.
07-29-2013 01:24 AM
Rmiller31 They don't make them larger then a 35 for the street that I'm aware of, the ones i have seen that are 37's are comp tires. Over all they're great. I've had them down to 10psi and wheel a lot of creek beds with tire killer trails and I've yet to have any problems. I rotate them every 3k and they are wearing well. I'd say I will get 40k out of them.

07-28-2013 08:55 AM
vince.parker25 Does anyone have them in a bigger size than a 35". I definitely feel like my jeep needs at least 37" for how tall it is.
06-19-2013 09:46 PM
vince.parker25 Still like red jeeps. sort of a before and after look. Front still how it was when we bought it. Can't wait to get everything on it.
