36x13.5 iroks?

hey guys, been a while since ive been on here. probably since ive been busy with my new truck. anyhow, just this week we went to big bend here in texas for vaca and took the jeep along and did some minor wheeling (ill post some pics once i have them up in the wheeling thread). well everyday there it was dry as can be and had fun doing some crawling and was a bunch of fun. but the last day it rained and we ended up getting it quite muddy, and now im quite sick of the mud, at first it was fun but now im having more fun crawling.

so im considering getting iroks, thinking the bias 36x13.5s but not sure what size rim, probably just the 15s i ges? also what kind of rims should i get? 10" wides? beadlocks? so i want yall opinions on this.

btw i will also be gettins somce BFG all terrains soon to match my spare for street tires since the boggers wear to fast and dont wanna waste these iroks either.

I think a 8" wide rim would be ideal for a 13.5 tire. It holds the bead better but you're getting beadlocks anyway. Plus you will also have more rimprotection with the 8" wide.

You won't regret getting some Iroks. I have the bias 40's and love 'em. They have been to Moab, and all kinds of wheeling here on the East Coast. I don't drive mine on the street though.

I went with the Rockstomper beadlocks. If you get weld on ones make sure to get good penetration so they do not leak.

8" wide wheels is what I used. After the plate is welded on it will make the rim wider.

Good luck, Doug

thanks for the replys guys! so 8" wides would work best? if i get beadlocks i would get wheels that already had them on them, not the weld ons, anyone suggest any good wheels that already have beadlocks on them?

This a buddy of mines rig who I sometimes wheel with & runs the 36" Iroks. They perform pretty well.

currently i use 35" bfg allterrains on the road and 36" bias iroks off road. both are mounted on 17x9 MT IIs and they work great. allot of people think you cant air down on 17s but you can just fine. they have the same small inner lip as 15s. other people site that the rim sits lower to the ground and will get scuffed up easier. this is true, however they bulg alot and are hard to scuff. if you run two sets who cares. my street wheels still look perfect.

im using the bias which when viewed side-by-side with the radials, marked with the same size, are taller and leaner and the radials are shorter and fatter. the radials are also quite a lot heavier.

how do you figure? have you even seen this tire mounted on an 8" wide wheel? they have a huge bulge on a 9". printed on the tire itself recomends a 10" wide wheel. how do you figure it will hold a bead better with that narrow of a wheel? have you tried this tire itself on different wheel widths and tested it? as far as rim protection the bulge is so huge on a 9" wide that i have a hard time trying to mar the rim on rocks.

No I don't, but I should be able to find out tomorrow. I spent the last couple days in Johnson Valley/Hammers with him & a few other friends, but I came home early & he's still there wheelin'.

I'll give chef a call tomorrow.

well I have had both 36x12.5R15 SX's and 42x14R15 IROK's. and can say the IROK's are a much better tire! the side walls are thicker, tread deeper, side lugs bigger and plus they are just sick in the rocks. but I dought they will do good on road at all! my SX's suck on road it is almos unbarable to drive on the high way with them and the IROK's are even more agresave so I can only amagine.

Oh an just so you know how bad *** they are I sprang one of my fingers rolling my 42's around. I got my middle and pointer stuck in between the lugs and it as the tire was rolling it bent it backward, they grip!!!

also I would look for a new front axle because thoes thing will eat that 30 up.

i believe those are 8" champion beadlocks.
i run 7" champion beadlocks with my 35x12.5x15 mt/r's and have been very happy with them.

I sure missed you & Matt not being there, plus others.

Wheeling was AWESOME. Long story, but I wheeled only on Saturday. We did Wrecking Ball and Tact Hammer.

Wrecking Ball proved to be extra exciting for me, but I sure don't want to repeat my waterfall episode in the same fashion. I drove up the exit waterfall okay, but the ensueing events almost cost me my junk & possibly worse. Some Lessons learned there no doubt.

There's video of it, but not the after event which almost caused me my rig or worse.
