Theres no tire thread
« on: Oct 19, 2006, 10:09:28 AM »
I think we need a tire thread to see what people run and what is liked or disliked, rim and tire combos, sizes, brands, what works in differant conditions etc. air down specs. There is a ton to be said. I have a lot of questions about tires but if people just wrote their opinion then there would be no asking. I'm sure you know tires make or break your rig.

there isnt 1 thread with everyones opinions, however there are a lot of treads on what users here like..... to make one thread would jsut be really confusing and turn MC into a place liek yotatech.....

yotatech has a lot of threads like you seek

I run cut 37" boggers, work great in Oreogn trails (lots of clay, dirt, mud and rocks) wouldn't want anything else. They work OK on the Cali. rocks but I seem to get shut down by the MTR's. Next set I run are prob gonna be 39" krawlers or bias iroks.

I run 36" IROKS and they work great on the rocks and have very strong sidewalls.

I dig the custom cut boggers Olivedrab.

Food for thought on the Iroks, first off their are a great tred. But for trails only, I have also seen them run with the tred bias reversed. Because of the slow speeds, the biasing doesn't come into effect and the reversed tred pattern on Iroks will give a more centering pull.

As for me, I have SSR's... They suck greatly unless run around 5-8lbs and even then they don't impress.

Thanks. I don't plan on this being much of a street vehicle after this winter so road manners aren't really an issue. I just hate getting denied on the rocks so I want a set of tires that work.

I run 33-12.50-15 and they are great. not quite as good in the muck as a TSL. best in the snow. decent on rocks and gravel(not much rock crawling here. imma mud and FAST trail freak) road handling is alright as long as its dry. no mud tire works on a wet road. 30,000 miles and i am almost bald. still gets me through the mud though.

I run 38x12.50 15 TSLs with around 7 to 8 psi and no bead locks. I usually blow the driver side front everytime I go out but it sure works good until that happens. That is why I carry a full size spare. I am very happy with the TSL. Great tire good price. They take me pretty much everywhere I ask them too. Good traction in mud, hills, surprisingly good on muddy rocks etc. I want to try a set of 39.5" Iroks next spring.
If you still have control you aren't going fast enough

:biggthumpup: I used to run 36 Bias ply Iroks on my dodge and loved them.  Now I run 38 all terrains not to happy with them Just use the dodge on the street now.  I run 35" Mud Kings on the Toyota they have been on the truck for about five or six years now.  They are a cheap tire but seem to do really well everywear I go.  East Coast wheeling. My next tires for the Toyota well be a set of 36" Iroks.

Cut the boggers too it helps them out alot, loosens up the big lugs.

I run 35" Mud Kings on the Toyota

I may be mistaken, but I believe those are the old style bfg muds, they just bought the molds or rights?
