Wondertwin1 Other TJ/LJ owner watch out for you. Left work an hour ago. Coming across the island and couldn't track down my phone (my music plays through Bluetooth, no texting, what are friends?). Searching my ass off to no avail, wishin I had someone with me to call it. No carpet, no back seat, no top or doors, should be simple right? Wrong. Well I'm sitting here searching and over on my passenger side trudging through the sand comes an LJ. He turned around just to see if everything was alright. He called my phone for me. Found under the middle of the passenger seat(no clue how it got there). By the time I figured it was missing I had only driven about 1000 feet. So thanks to all you jeepers out there that keep an eye out for another one in distress. I know I do. And I got the chance to pay the good deed forward about 5 miles later by telling a lady her tail light was out.

1) Low speeds = running this low gives them more bounce and they will cup/scallop

2) High speeds = the center of the tires will lift at high speeds and wear more in the center then the outsides

both of these scenarios can and will cause damage to your tires, create less surface space for riding and braking and ultimately create unbalancing issue that could create DW

Do I expect to get 50k out of them??? No I don't. if they were an a/t tire I would but they aren't plus I tend to lose a little rubber when I pay in the rocks because I spin them to get up obstacles. So taking that into account to each they're own. For what it's worth my size is rated at 2535 pounds at 35 psi, so to run them at 35 psi which is the psi on the sidewall I would b running pressure to support 10140 pounds which is way more than any tj weighs hence the lower pressure.

Ret Vet 007 Hey, no problem. I enjoyed all 25 years in the pickle-suit! Yea, the misses has been there with me over 26yrs and is priceless. The jeep she bought me.....well, just icing on the cake!

HarryJeepGuy You have reading comprehension issues, I've been very clear. Resort to whatever you need to feel better. It is all there to see. Let the thread go on, not pick fights you have already lost.
I have handed you many outs, you keep digging the hole. Give it up, start a new thread if you would like, don't get this one shut down. I won't respond to you again in this thread, or waste any more of my time.

[QUOTE=HarryJeepGuy;9554962]Dude, I think you just want me to type...
Different size tires and different weight vehicles require different pressures. We went over this. "WW" is well read and correct, and running a 31 inch tire. So there is your 28-30lb. Not sure what size John Doe runs, he didn't say.

Ret Vet, thank you for the service but I guess your misses has already done that the best way anyone can. Plain Jane is nice it gives you reason to paint the picture you want to see every morning you walk outside.

Hairy Jeep Guy - Blah Blah Blah... now your trying to back peddle and say their are all these different variables to take into consideration when having a discussion about jeep tires.. everyone in here knows that. Since you started your little tirade you have modified what you said a few times by adding variables, but at the same time tried to crucify me by not saying everything perfectly right from the beginning.
It started with a general conversation about 33's-35's.. people could have asked about if wanted to peruse or take what they need and leave the rest.. Unlike you.. taking a grandiose/bully everyone out of the way that doesn't see it exactly the way you do(I'm surprised you havent corrected my spelling/grammar). You said I was wrong and everyone should assume what I say is wrong.. so I quoted a moderator that has the save general views. You said your knowledge is thread related.. so I cut and pasted a thread to confirm my knowledge. We can continue this path if you want, but I assure you... If you think youre going to drive over me you better upgrade to D60's, 5.13 gears and ask your boyfriend to wait at camp, because I will break your axles and leave you upside down in a mudd puddle every time.
