Also as far a shipping they have a estimater if you put the quantity of tires and click "Add To Cart". Shipping from Florida to Wisconsin was not to bad at $150 so that put a final price of 4 37x13.5x15 at $1126.50.

Marcus, try Stazworks. They are a distributor in Wisconsin and offer the best prices I have seen. You can go and pick them up  :yesnod:

For the Rocker. He will probably match price. He seems like a really good guy.

Thanks! For some reason I thought that Staz only carried interco tires.

How much does a 39.5x13.50 15 IROK weigh? The Rocker looks to weigh 86.5 pounds  :yikes:

Big Mike....Any update on how these worked in the snow!?

Also has anyone tried these things in the mud!?

my buddy just bought a set of 39.5 16.5 on 15's they are WAY WAY!!! to wide... imo on his first trip out on the new tires it was a snow day at retier. we wheeled all day in a good foot of snow and i must say, those tires are huge but i was not impressed my buddy has 35 MTR's on his runner and they were spankin the rockers. i don't know if it is because they are not worn in... i don't think he dropped them down to less than 15 pounds... i told him to take them  down to around 6... well see what happens when he wheels in the rocks... for a first impression i was not impressed. just my 02.

they do look like they can do some damage

I too would like to know how the 37" rockers compare to the 36-37" Iroks in wet rocky/bog type wheelin as there doesn;t seem to be any siping in the lugs. I'm running the 36" Iroks and i'm more then impressed but i always liked the rockers....just don't know anyone with them.

DD pretty much means a more normal pair of MTs(BFG/Bridgestone/etc).  And, honestly, unless you are doing silly stuff where you need a real purpose-built tire, you don't need anything more then MTs.  In fact, most of the peope who do The Con use ATs or MTs.  Skill is 90% of it.

I talked to Bigmike at MCR about why he went to the MTR's and he said that the rockers were not to great for driving on the road. I didnt think that this was his DD but he must drive it alot, to make the swich.

Yeah, I had to turn my ROCKERs in :hammerhead:

The problem I had is that I do not have beadlocks, and I lost the beads on my 37x15x13.50 on 10" wide wheels 3 times, twice on the last run I went on...

The thing is that the ROCKERs work best at around 3 psi. HUGE difference between 6 psi and 3 psi. It is like I have 8 tires, completely unstoppable. But two problems at this pressure: 1) I was loosing beads because I did not have beadlocks. 2) Ground clearance suffered what I thought to be "more than usual", and this must be due to the fact that the 37" ROCKER is more like a 36" or 35.5" tall tire.

I went back to 37x12.50x15 MTRs, and the MTRs at 6 psi work much better than the ROCKERs at 6 psi, for obvious reasons: The MTR is 26 pounds lighter...........EACH! So they are softer (and hence weaker).


My advice to someone considering a ROCKER: I strongly recommend beadlocks so you can air them down below 4 psi, and if you can, go for the 39.5" which might be more like a 38" ??


As for daily driving them, I dunno, it just got to me. The airsoft BBs helped out a lot, but I don't think I put enough in because they still were pretty rough. Especially in the morning, I got so used to the flat spotting that I didn't realize it until I put on some radials (the MTRs). Night and day difference. I just felt like the ROCKERs were rock'n my truck apart! They are not designed to run 80 MPH every day.

Regards,
BigMike

The MTR is 26 pounds lighter

Ok, here are the correct figures, and some pictures for comparison:

37x13.50x15 ROCKERs on 15x10 American Steel Wheels: 108.4 pounds
37x12.50x15 MTRs on 15x10 Aluminum Wheels:85.0 pounds


I was very disappointed when I put the two tires next to each other. Granted the ROCKERs are supporting the weight of my truck, but its not *that* much of a difference on or off. The 37" ROCKERs are more like a 35.5" tire. My first trip out with the MTRs I could immediately tell they were taller and that I had more ground clearance. Being able to air up to 32 psi with the MTRs compared to 18-20 psi for the ROCKERs is a big plus for daily driving.

What would you have done? I really loved the ROCKERs, but the MTRs are too much of a safe bet to take. If the ROCKERs were 2" taller and easier on a daily driver, I would have kept them and got Beadlocks.

I am sorry to be putting the ROCKERs down. I really loved them, Especially over wet terrain they were amazing! I never took them to the snow, I did have them in the sand at TDS and they did not work well (ROCKER not SANDER :yupyup:), I love how they look when they are hooking up like a dragster tire, but................ had fun, now I'm doing something else.
