kjeeper10 Well, these new tires are night and day. Some of the smaller bumps that would kinda kick the jeep to the side are not felt no more. Jeep rides a lot smoother.
No vibes on highway at all.

Can't believe all the grief they gave me.

So much for the steering corection kit

ESP Seriously they were boulders. Had them for about three days and then got the same size but in a D load. Had those for three months then sold the wheels/tires bought new wheels/tires and we all know where this story goes.

I would assume a D rated tire on a Jk would be OK.

I drove E MTR's on a Tj and I lost fillings lol

kjeeper10 I still can't believe beads were still in there. That is going to throw the balance way off.

ESP I thought the KM2s were louder than the MTZs I'm running now but then I aired down to 30psi instead of running them higher and they are much louder than before. With more tire making contact they definitely are roaring. Good to hear about the new tires. I had the shop take all the beads in my tires and I was worried though that they might miss someone. I just trusted they got them all out with the shop vac. I think they did a great job because it's been a shimmy less drive and very comfortable since. No problems.

The first day I had them mounted he used sticky's on the inside. One wheel had the weights making contact.
Rebalanced and no problems since.

I always liked the KM1 and 2. These new ones seemed to balance nicely. They are loud on the road if that bothers you?

"you know ones a jeep is lifted its never going to drive good again, especially with such big off road tires"

And " you know those are not meant for the street really 60 mph tops "

And .... Enough!!!!! how much? " lol

Well, they were supposed to be all out ?

I'm just curious is if what was left -- although little -- was enough to cause issues?

That's prob where my shimmy was coming
from (the left over beads)
Hell of a difference though. So smooth compared to the other junk. So far so good. Will see I guess ??
