The white lettering looks better than the flares and side steps.

OlllllllO

got my 35x12.5x15 Goodyear Kevlars today. Ordered them last Friday but the warehouse closed at noon for the holiday so i had to wait til today to get them. Went to the shop with my new 15x10 steelies and the wheels were to wide. Anyone else having problems mounting them on 15x10 wheels? When they aired the tires up the bead popped into place and the rim stuck out past the rim protector about 1/4 of an inch.... ???

ERRRRR glad some of you are getting them. Mine have 32 miles on them and one of them is flat, but only on the bottom. I literally drove them home the day I bought and had them mounted then parked the jeep. I did that on labor day weekend. I started working on the motor at that point and it has been sitting since. While under it I noticed the sidewall dimple people have referred to. I called my tire guy, great guy that has always taken care of me and he has been waiting for one since 12-4. I didn't buy a spare at the time, I knew the jeep wouldn't be out for awhile, shame on me. Now that I'm starting my motor swap It would be nice to have the ability of moving the jeep. Guess its time to pick up a beater spare or start asking questions.

That's too wide of a wheel for a 12.50 tire. Go 15x8.

Had them on my WJ for about 8k miles, decided to downsize to 33" duratracs for practicality reasons. They never balanced 100%, very loud inside the cab, made the jeep wander everywhere, and they weighed 60lbs a piece :O

Will never compare offroad though, 10psi and these did amazing. Hardly ever slipped, and the sidewall did its job. Would buy again on a strictly trail rig, but on a DD they definitely lack comfort. Also they sucked in rain and snow. Pretty much sucked everywhere besides mud. Im happy with my duratracs, never had a mid mud terrain ride so good, and perform awesome in snow!

Funny I have had nothing but good from my 35" MT/R K's.Balance very well,almost zero noise,and shed over 20lbs per tire coming from Toyo Open Country MT's.Have been great in the snow,ice,and rain and yes killer offroad on the rocks at 10psi and suburb ride on the street.No mud though,I stay away from mud.I've had mine on for almost 11,000 miles now.

Hmm, strange! Haha, everyones stories are different I suppose. Mine definitely did not ride well, I know that for a fact, very hard over bumps, and they rattled everything in the cab, guess thats what subs are for!

What psi were you running? My Jeep weighs 6000lbs and I'm only running 27psi and they ride great for me with no funny wear as I do a 5 tire rotate every 1500 miles and a alignment every 3000 miles.Max psi is only 35 for the 35x12.50x15's.
