Here's the only thing that eludes to a lower number of plies -

Reading the Tire's Sidewall
You got it! The tires in LT-metric sizing used to be built with x number of physical plies back in the day, but now they are just x number ply-rated. People tend to scratch their heads when you tell them that a tire is load range D rather than telling them it is 8-ply rated.

pbloxam 2014 Sahara..Cooper APKs, K&N, Borla exhaust, Skid row,Rugged Ridge, pretty much stock, no lift kit but interested in a leveling kit, maybe spacers to widen the stance...

Jurfie Hi everyone...just joined the forum after picking up my new '14 Rubicon in Granite Crystal Metallic a couple of weeks ago! I've just finished going through this entire thread as motivation, inspiration, and ideas for future mods. Hopefully an AEV 2.5" lift and 35" tires soon, but will likely start with some 1.5" Spidertrax spacers to push the wheels out a bit and give it a more aggressive stance. They're tucked in too far for my liking.

I recently added JKUR coils and shocks to my Teraflex leveling kit and got 3.75" of lift and mounted up my 35"s.

This mud-terrain tire is constructed with one nylon, two polyester, and two steel belts in the tread, and two polyester sidewall belts.

Size (High Flotation)
High Flotation Size Tire Graphic
Diameter - "35"
The first number indicates the tire's diameter in inches. In this example, the tire manufacturer has determined that this is a 35" tire. However, actual measured overall diameters vary from one manufacturer to the next.

Tire Width - "1250"
Standard tire width is indicated in inches with the decimal point removed. Therefore, in this example, the number 1250 indicates that this tire is 12.5" wide.

Tire Construction - "R"
The "R" in this example indicates radial tire construction.

Wheel Diameter - "17"
This indicates the wheel diameter in inches.

Plies - "E"
This letter indicates the load carrying capacity of the tire in terms of its construction. A "C" indicates the tire has a 6-ply load carrying capacity. The tire is not actually built with 6 plies, but contains one or two plies of equivalent strength. A "D" is an 8-ply rating, and an "E" is a 10-ply rating. If there is no letter, the tire has a standard 4-ply rating.

I've inspected the tires post-ride and don't see anything. tab22092, maybe you caught the tree at "just the right angle"? Were you aired down? I'm concerned now and will keep an eye on them.

Too bad, that's a good looking Jeep. Hope you like the 4-door as much, I think you will.
