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?

|vince.parker25||Okay. I found something weird. On tire rack 35x12.50r15 are cheaper than 33's? Why?|
|08-01-2013 02:52 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 02:46 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.|

One thing to consider is the durability of the Red lettering.
*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.

|vince.parker25||Even in a 32x12.50 you wouldn't ever put them on a jk that's a DD? Was thinking about putting them on my girlfriends jeep.|

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.

|vince.parker25||I saw these on Craigslist. Never seen anything like them.|
|07-29-2013 12:36 PM|
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.

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

|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 11:05 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 09:38 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 02:24 AM|
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 09:55 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 10:46 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.|
