Hilldweller The law of 4-way stops: drivers wave the coolest vehicle through first.
Once you're lifted, have good tires, bumper and winch, you'll usually be universally waved-through first. Often by Porsches.

And you were like "yeah..that's my Jeep ladies" now move away from it.

MikeMTJ Looks sick! Just remember that driving with a different size tire is hard on the drive train!

Stranded motorist or 'cop', it's never a good idea to stop and talk to strangers.

It doesn't matter who they claim to be.

rics1997 They did great on the ice, at least for me. I got lucky though, one truck lost it coming down a hill I was going up but he went into the ditch right before he got to me. These tires went right up it though with no problem, I would have stopped for him but a cop was behind me at the time.

Well, not Georgia mud.

They look soo awesome!.. hope to get a new tire soon too.. The raised letter would be a deal breaker for me..

I am going to have my stock wheels reversed just for time being

you just have the lift, no spacers...

rics1997 Did do a slushy snow covered road ride to the grocery store. Very wet snow but had the road covered. They handled that without an issue even on the little bypass road I use that I would never had tried in a car. Most cars were barely moving but I was able to get up to a little speed around 45 on the main stretch of road. Of course didn't try that on the back roads. Never slipped once. I see in the morning when the freezing over night temps hit that mess how it does. Unfortunately I need to get out on it.

XJ Knight I remember mud.. Got to place nice with that stuff.. You'll get sticky, but it won't be a happy ending if your not careful

Jp90Talon I too can not wait until spring and mud season!

Interesting.. I originally thought so to.. But maybe i'm just reading the minority reviews on them.. Ah well in due time rick will add to the opinion of these tires by testing them the way they are meant to be used

Actually that is there weak point on them.. Even more so than the street
01-07-2011 08:05 PM
Jp90Talon You are correct. I just purchased as set of 35x12.5x15s and I had to be careful that I had them order the correct ones with the black lettering.

ESP Let us know once you get her out on the trail and flex them hard to see if they rub there. Nice looking rig man, looks great -

Good eye tom.. my guess is he's riding on one highway slick till he buys another MTR

rics1997 lol, hey I have done 50 mph on a donut, I think the SR-A can work in a pinch. But do plan on replacing it at next tire rotation. I plan on putting the tire cover over that thing if it ever quits snowing.

Nice.

MT stands for maximum traction for this tire, not mud terrain.
They're considered an aggressive all terrain tire.
Awesome tire on wet streets and on rocks. In fact, the best tire I've ever had on slick scary rocks.
Just use a bit of care in sticky mud; they don't shine there.

rics1997 Thanks, I have just about got it ready for the trail. Going to get the Bob's Smilin' hose extension for the axles, transfer case and tranny to protect from water getting in and the Evap skip, already armored the oil pan and later rocker guards.
