i am in independence ky, and i will be purchasing either the 12 bolt or the 24 bolt 16.5 bead locks. not positive if i want to run the run flats or not
since the side walls are like bullet proof.
militaryoffroadtires.net wants 800 bucks for the tires wheels and shipping which isnt too bad
and i will probably have new centers put in since i am already on full widths

any opinions on the oz handling compared to the other tires they are offering

So you want 37" military tires because you blew a 35" tire on the highway? Or am I missing something else?

yea, i just put alot of money putting full with axles king coilovers,cage,ect ect...
with the 35s on 5.5 re long arm flat belly im still dragging my belly and pumpkins so yea why not
go with a bigger tire if my axles will handle it

im just curious if the military oz is the best military tire for off road and street or does anybody have anything else they prefer for around 8 hundred ???

I have a friend running military 37s on his toyota DD... But not sure which they are. Sorry not much of a help.
You are going to get guys telling you to stick with 35s. I say go to 37s. Build bigger. Its looks great and awesome offroad.
Im jealous by the way. Sounds like youve got a real nice rig. Cant wait till i get full widths and 40s

thanks - thedaringmove trust me i have a ton of money in it
the pic on the tires were stock axles on 33s (old setup)
the one in the shop is on 35s just so i had something that was 8 lug to get it out of the shop
now that i blew a tire i dont want to replace it with another 35

but i still need to hear from someone who has ran these cause i know there hard and dont want to be sliding
all winter or everytime it rains a little with a short wheel base
if there is another type of 37s that everyone loves i could try finding something on craigslist

Pickleman-

Did you ever hear from anyone running these? I'm interested in these as well and can't seem to find much info from people running them. Was looking into Trail Worthy Fabs rims and their BFG Bajas.

there was a thread here of a guy that has showed pics of his at zero psi still standing. Do not think it was a DD.

I'm Retired Marine Corps, and our Humvees ran the old Goodyear MT or BFG Baja TA. Both were awesome. However, that's mounted on a 9k ton truck. Being out in the desert area, I've seen guys run both with good wear and flex. As a DD, it's hard to say because I know the Baja's are roughly 700$ a tire, but the MT/MTR you can't go wrong. I'm running 37" MTRs on my DD, 5k miles with a rotation and minimal wear. If you're looking at the Michelin XL/XML/XZL tires, as a DD they might not be great. I believe they're rated at 65mph and lower. Some sizes of each respectively 55mph and lower. Also, I've only heard they don't flex much when aired because of the sidewall strength. They are designed for vehicles intended to be shot at/blown up.
