That's my White YJ in the pics above. When I got my tires mounted they said I could air down to 3 o 4psi. I don't have beadlocks and thought they were crazy. I did go to 8psi with no problems. The sidewalls are about .5" thick so they'll hold you up. I've been doing this for close to 30 years and these are by far the best tires I've ran. On road they seem to be holding up well, not alot of road noise. They are about like a BFG MT, if that helps. Not as bad as a TSL Swamper. The 35's measure out at 35.5. And as far as fitting with 4" suspension & 2" body you shouldn't have to cut anything. I have the 4" but no body lift and had to trim somemore of the rear fender. I also have the 15x10's but with 3.5" backspacing and have no issues with spring rub. Hope this helps ya out.

Thanks for the post. It helps. I also have 15x10 but have to check. I might have 3.75 back space. They look like a nice tire though. What is the max psi? What psi are you running on the road?

Thanks

But FWIW, the bias ply run MUCH smaller than stated. I have a buddy who has the 37" bias and they only measure 35.6" at 30psi. My 37" radial was 37.4" unmounted and right at 37"/37.1" mounted on a 15x10 wheel.
Any of your buddies got the 35x14.5x15 bias? I was wondering what size they really are.

Also are the sidewalls on the radials as thick as the bias version? Or how close.
