They will mount them. We got them almost 2 years ago and they mounted them on a lifted jeep.

We love them so far! They have very good road manners, and off road they've taken every beating we've thrown at them so far. Heres a video of them (sorry about my laughing in the background I'm not even sure why I was)

Some pics as well.

Winter pic after having them for over a year and wheeled the piss out of them.

















Great tires never had any issues but 1. gravels will get stuck in the tread and annoy the hell out of you while driving down the road making a clicking sound. i carried a screw driver with me at all times and just popped the gravels out.

i put 20,000 miles on these tires hwy and offroad and rock climbing and snow. then sold them and went to 33's

Nice looking jeep. We love ours still...have had them for almost 2 years now but only 2-3k but they still look brand new. So great in everything...minus the gravel...we figured that out too...and that mud likes to stick to the sidewall even after going to the car wash...great tire though

This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a Jeep.

I just bought these tires tuesday, and I am pleased with them. I went from some dry rotted mud kings with missing lugs and gashes in them(im rough on tires). The difference is night and day. Just a slight hum at highway speeds they ride very smooth and look awesome on the Jeep. Ive got almost 200 miles on them. I havent had them offroad yet.

So far I love mine, I've put about 12,000 miles on them with no unusual wear. I'd also like to mention that 75% of my miles are on gravel roads, and I've yet to have one blow out on me. Off-road, I down right beat the **** out of these tires, and they haven't failed me yet. I run them on both my TJ and XJ, depending on the season and which Jeep I'm driving. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another set.

You'll like them off road. We've had them in a lot of deep mud and they bite through it all. They do good in sand as well. We took a trip up to Tuttle Creek ORV over the weekend and its a lot of rocks. The Authorities clawed and grabbed through everything. There was one hill where you really needed lockers because it was so loose and steep, step dad put the hammer on it just enough and they carried him almost all the way up. He would've had it but hit a wrong and lost all momentum at the top.

Now the 31x10.5x15's are $150 at my local WalMart and BFG AT are $186 at BJ's (Sam's clone). Thanks for all the comments. I will prob go with these next spring when I need to replace the summer tires.

Got these last friday. They are soft, but they are cheap and they ride smooth. Not loud at all and i went from 28's to 31's and the MPG difference isnt that noticable. I've seen one spot where a rock has taken a little chunk but im hoping that is just a one time deal.

Checked pricing again yesterday at our walmart, and 265/75s are going for $176ish. Anything larger is $200ish or more.

This is the same as any name-brand tire on the market...so I'm not sure why people would use this tire which is a Walmart-only tire unless you just specifically love that tread pattern.

'96 ZJ - heavily modded
'05 KJ CRD Limited - 370 lb./ft. from a 4-cylinder and trail ready. Pure awesomeness.
