I dunno, seems all the manufacturers want to sell 17's and that's it. If we get a 2nd Jeep in the next year and a half my next set will be 15X38.5's

Just looked it up. 16,18, and 20. 13 more sizes in Spring 2015, 30 more in Fall 2015. Looks like they won't be my next set 😡

The guy said two walls had some scoring and will probably need to be bored. I should know Friday when we work on it. I'm still having a problem finding an aluminum radiator....except for some on ebay and I'm just not sure about that.

I like the 15's, the 17" kool-aid hasn't made it to my table yet. If you get into more than a light mud I'd shy away from any A/T, the KM2's and Coopers would be a good place to start shopping. If you want to check out a ton of tires I like to go to National Tire and Wheel's website, and of course Interco's.

Thats what they were. Thought they did pretty well on snow and ice.

Maybe it's menopause?? That would also explain the hot flashes you've been getting. Or you could just be getting too old for nights, it's not easy on your body.

I wouldn't run Goodyear's if your mom gave them to me.

It's a daily driver that sees weekend trails. Mostly woods with mud, fallen trees etc. Theres no rocks around here and it's all flat land. Doesn't get too crazy.
