So far I love them. Quite and smooth. They are supported to be 33s but on the Jeep they measure just a hair over 32. But after 57,000 miles my stock SRAs were down to about 30.5 inches so itís still an improvement. Plus these look so much better.

Nice. Do you have more pics different angle? What brand lift do you have?

I'll Try to post more pictures later. I haven't figured out how to upload and post multiple pics in one post from Tapatalk. That's why I only posted one.

The lift is a Terraflex 2.5 inch lift with Rancho RS9000 adjustable shocks. It's basically the lift in the Most Popular Lift thread. It's a fantastic lift if you're interested in a 2.5 inch lift. Mine rides better than stock with the shocks adjusted on the soft side.

I also have 1.5 inch Spidertrax Spacer/Adapters.

thanks for posting. it looks great! I see you figured out how to post multiple pics. you see the difference more clearly in the before/after shot. do you have a 3/4 front shot?

Also, I noticed the spare tire is mounted differently than the rest of your tire! it's the other side!!! was this intentional?

Actually I didn't figure out how to post multiple photos. So my work around was to create a collage in Google photos and save as one image.

The only other way I could figure was to create multiple image links using a 3rd party image host and copy those links into the thread.

You had me freaked out on the spare. I was about to walk out and check it.

I'll post a 3/4 front shot in a minute.

Only Got about 40 Miles on them, but so far so good! Much quieter than the stock KMs.

I'm sure people have posted similar comments but I love my 37's. They have 25K miles on them and they are as quiet as the day the first hit the pavement. I spin them around with every oil change doing 5 tire rotation. The tread wear stays pretty even that way.
They do very well off road with good grip and side walls have resisted cuts. I have noticed a bit of slipping of wet pavement.

I still love the Ridge Grapplers, it's my favorite A/T. I have asked them to make a 315/70-17 in C rating. That would be a direct replacement for Ford Raptors. It would also be an AWESOME tire for our Jeeps.

I think @Discount Tire should help us and make a recommendation to them as well.

That's great news and I hope to get the same out of mine! I did a ton of research before pulling the trigger on these, and so far I think I made the right choice.

Did anyone in this thread figure out how the C and E rated versions of the tire weigh the exact same?

Are they just rebadging the E tires as Cs, and there is really no difference in the stiffness of the two tires?

I debated C vs E with this tire and went with E as the AZ desert can be tough of tires. I expected a harsh ride, but I can't tell the difference over the stock KM's "C" tires.

Hey Croshair, have you had the RG on snow or wet pavement? I like my Duraís a lot, but now I need a new set Iíve been thinking of switching. The GY have been great as a DD especially in the snow.

Not yet on snow, I just got them. It handled as good as the Duratracs during a rain storm on the expressway and city streets. I five wheel rotated my Duratracs for almost 60,000 miles. I replaced them at 6/32nd's because they were getting louder.

Others have said that the Ridge Grapplers are the new Duratracs these days. I went from 255/75R17 Dura on the left to the 285/70R17 RG on the right.

Been taking advantage of ebay sales, so I picked up 4 285/75/17s (C load) in the middle of last month, which I just mounted from Discount Tire Direct. Just got another single one during ebay's 20% off sale to round out the set. I think I'm under $1300 for all 5, so I'll call that a victory. Super quick shipping, mounted locally with TPMS on my Pro Comps.



Initial impressions are good. Little to no road noise. Need to play with the pressure a bit, as it's still a tiny bit rough. Rides like stock. Probably doesn't hurt that I put on new Rancho RS5000x shocks at the same time. Pics once it's not raining here.

Thank you for your continued business. Glad to hear you were able to take advantage of the sales.

We look forward to your photos.

All they need to do is drop the price, reduce the weight, and add a bunch of siping and this would be a competitive tire.
