Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip Tires
 
Is anyone running these tires? They seem to get some good reviews but I'd like to hear if anyone here has any real world experience with them.

I'm still exploring a lot of options and this tire came up. :D

got a buddy who has them i put them on 4 him he loves them pretty quiet on road nut he drives a tacoma. pretty aggressive tread but not to bad on the highway he had gotten alot of miles on them and no complaints yet.

MR.CLIFFORD 08-19-2007 11:43 PM

I know where you can get a set in the 37 flavor.

Scout 08-19-2007 11:43 PM

15 or 17?

MR.CLIFFORD 08-19-2007 11:44 PM

17

Scout 08-19-2007 11:45 PM

Are they the one's you posted the other day? Give me the scoop on them. Why's he selling them and do they suck or not? :D

BTW I'm looking at the 16's. :D

MR.CLIFFORD 08-19-2007 11:49 PM

He was leaving on a trip to NY. He is still there. His dog is in my living room. He was selling some brand new coilovers and took the tires plus some cash in trade. I have never run the tires personally and have never been around them. I will bolt them up on my junk and give them a test if you'd like.

Scout 08-19-2007 11:55 PM

You can if you want merely for the knowledge of knowing how they are.

I personally wouldn't want his because I'm set on staying with a 16 because I have two sets of 16 inch wheels in the garage.

Are his the first set of those you've seen? Do they look like a pretty decent tire? The whole "P" "J" tread pattern kinda turns me off. Surely if that was the end all in tread design then everyone would have "P" "J" as their tread design. :D But then again, what the hell do I know? :D

Thanks! I don't care what kind of vehicle they're on just more of how they work. I like Tacoma's myself. :D

What kind of wheeling? Rocks, mud?

MR.CLIFFORD 08-20-2007 12:03 AM

They are "dirt" grip tires. I think they should have called them "Everythingandyourmomma" grip. Then they would be a great tire!

Scout 08-20-2007 12:08 AM

So how about in the rocks? :D

MR.CLIFFORD 08-20-2007 12:10 AM

rocks are part of everything!

So you haven't even bought tires yet and your selling your Claws? :confused:

Have you looked at the ProComp Xtreme-Terrains and Xtreme-Mud Terrains? I wanna run one of those for my next set after a rear axle upgrade.

ProComp's are a little on the high side. I'm kicking around 3 or 4 options and these are one of them.

Too bad you can't hold out for a while, til the new BFG Mud Terrain is out.

Scout 08-20-2007 12:21 AM

I've had BF G's in the past. It's time to try something new. I like to rotate the brands every couple of months. :D


Alright..what the hell...tell me about the new BF G's. Linky?

mmasuperman12 08-20-2007 12:26 AM

thye did ok in the mud, no swamper but better in my opinion then the old BFG M/t's rocks they gripped pretty well not hard core rock crawling and didnt air them down but they were good.great in the snow!! gsorry i live in maine we get a lot i look for that in tires. i have only had to pull him outta the mud a few times but that is because its a toyota not the tires fault

4point 08-20-2007 12:29 AM

From what I've been reading... it might be harder compound than the Krawlers. I hope thats wrong, and that its the same as the current M/T's.

1BLKJP 08-20-2007 12:48 AM

There's no way they could make a street tire with compounds as soft as the Red Label Krawlers. But if they are combing the MT with the KA line then it should be a pretty decent tire overall.

Scout, I've seen them on the trail, but not while I've been driving. I've actually looked at some used 37's for the 17's I bought myself.
