"Until you lift it more and put bigger meats on," agreed. It is possible to get 50k miles out of them wilth regular rotations

Pay very close attention, these two points are very important. 1) Only buy Jeep tires that wear out very quickly. 2) Always buy bigger next time, never the same size twice.
