my 265/75 guard dogs are bigger than a regular 265/75, parked next to my buddies 4runner at work w/ 285/75's the tires look identical in height. his are at about 50-75% tread. at 4in on a WJ i had to trim for these tires.

they are loud but smooth, balanced better than any tire ive ever owned. the traction is great, lots of mud for me and they do great.

Most 31" tires are 30"

I'd like to get 32"s butt this price is too good to pass and if they are actually 31" I'm sold....
The Guard Dog 31" tires are actually 32". I have them and I LOVE them.

I want 15" too, but I can get 5, 16" soft 8's, and 5, 35" treadwrights for less than I can buy 5 brand name 35" M/T's


5 soft 8's 16x8 = $300
5 treadwright 35" = $700
= $1000

5 KM2's 35" = $1050


Just sayin...

Yes, but then next time you have to replace your tires, youll already have the 16" wheels and the new tires will only be $700...

I dont care, do what you want, you had just mentioned that you would buy retreads if they sold 35"... I was just trying to help.

so if the MTR design has smaller voids than the GY MTR, does this mean that the Warden A/T will have smaller voilds as compared to the BFG A/T?

I just had my Warden A/T installed last night on my 98 ZJ. I have merely driven a couple miles, but it was on packed snow/ice and even when romping on it and letting the 360 spin them they grabbed and went. My only complaint was the amount of weight required to balance them. 2 of them balanced nice and easy. the other 2 each took over 5 ounces to balance. I think it is just a roll of the dice to get a balanced tire. All four came on a BFG A/T carcass and look pretty good for a re-tread. Will be updating after I get some miles on them and try some highway and towing.

I'm thinking about Warden AT's for the XJ.
I would really like some real world opinion here.
I wheel in the Ozarks, so mud there on occasion but its more sand and rocks and the occasional sandy silt.
So should it be the Warden, or the Mud tire?
I'm leaning towards the warden to be honest.
