I would say i have probably close to 4K on mine and they show very little wear and i run them at 27-28 psi with one rotation so far.

Well my original MT/Rs just rolled over 36k miles and there are a couple of spots where they're worn down to the point of replacing. It sounds like the new design is quieter and better in pretty much all situations, so I'm thinking about buying 4 of these and leaving my original spare for now (never been off the tailgate, didn't think about doing a 5 tire rotation in the beginning... oh well). It sounds like the most important thing is to get a Road Force balance, I have no idea what my local shops have but I would HOPE the Goodyear-branded stores have it. Should I also get an alignment, or wait until there are some miles on the new tires first?

^I would get the alignment done at the same time. I'd also consider buying a 5th and rotating all five. Enjoy!

Yeah, I guess it would be smart to start a 5 tire rotation now... just trying to save 300 bucks

Nice rig! I really like the grille too. I just picked up a new soft top with tinted windows and I scored some full doors of CL for a real good price so mine is starting to come together. Ive had these tires for a couple weeks now and I just got the chance to take them wheeling, and I am very impressed. Its safe to say all of my friends are jealous

Damn, that WJ looks great. My ex-gf had the exact same one, Overland and all I was trying to get her to put a mild lift on it.
