Any reason NOT to choose 34"

Collecting parts and pieces to step up my latest TJ...

I have been planning on 33-12.50/15 TSL radials since I started, but have found and realized that 34-10.50/15 LTB are about the same price, and may even be a little easier on the drivetrain, being narrower.

Is there any logical reason to stay away from the 34s? I've not run across them before, to the best of my knowledge....

I have the ability to spell correctly, it's just that the autocorrect on my iPad will not permit it.

Thats reason enough to buy a common size, Is when you have never herd of them. The LTB is one of very few 34" tires unless you count BFG 35's that come out to a tall 33". IMO id stick to the 33-12.50-15, Easier to find a spare and or a matching spare.
All swamper tires come true to size or larger so it will not help or hinder your cause. It will look like tall pizza cutters and the LTB is a softer tire too so you wont see what you will out of the radials if rotated every 3k. To each their own though, Good luck either way

Have you read the reviews on the LTBs? I was planning to buy LTB 34s until I read that they have issues with flat spotting and are best suited for offroad use only.

Just so you know any swamper mud tire is better in bias ply form rather than radial. If you get swampers it will be loud, gnarly, and awesome once you leave the pavement. I have been considering the 34 ltbs for a long time only with a wider footprint for the rear like 12.50.

As far as on road and treadwear and all that nancy stuff, if your worried about it, you probaly dont wanna join the swamper club.

Don't get 34" size tire. Cause 35" is bigger. That is all.

I run the 34x10.50x15 ltb on my Cherokee. I bought 5 so finding a spare is no problem. I put 8 oz. of airsoft BBs in each tire and they are amazingly smooth on the road. Sure they flat spot, they are bias ply tires. Drive them a few miles and the flat spots go away. Loud? you bet, awsome? absolutely!

Most 34s are 85 series and heavier capacity for heavier trucks. Nothing wrong with them but sidewalls will be stiffer and they are heavier. I like the look of 255/85R16s on anything. But 33s will give a lot more floatation.
