31's

They are just about 31 inches tall fully inflated.



I am still working on the alignment so I can't give a full review yet. I will say this. The guys at the tire shop said they were the best looking retreads they had ever seen and they wanted to know who did them.

They all balanced perfectly

i searched like crazy i think stone tires the one that didnt have anything on their website it said "NEW CONTENT IN 2009" so im guessing they are gone. Every other place was mainly for semi's. It also shows that POMPs tire does them and there is one in town but it didnt say if they were for light trucks or semis

FYI 31"s usually measure 29 to 30"s so these are more like a 32" tire......

No wonder I am having such a hard time fitting the full size spare in the back! I am pleased with them so far. They have a good hum to them but it is definitely a livable noise and nothing like my TSL's.

I drove the rig all day today. Still dealing with some rubbing issues because of them being bigger than expected.

Once I get my new sway bar in I will be able to give it a better test.

mine came in 2 weeks after I ordered them. At the time they said it might be a while before they got casings in stock.

Great customer service over there.

Mine were delivered today.

I'll make sure to take some pictures of them before and after they're mounted. Have to finish trimming my fenders first!

Did you ask if there was a waiting list? I believe they used to have one for 33/12.5's.

I was asking about 33-10.5/15.... This is the reply I got:

Chris,

Thank you for the email. Unfortunately the size you referenced does not fit any of our molds so it is not a size we can do. I know there are quite a few people that would like them if we could make them but for right now that is not an option for us. If that changes in the future we will post any news of it on the website.

Best regards,

Joel

I'm pretty impressed with the whole concept, but still a little confused. Do they just pick and choose carcasses? Say I ordered 5 of the Warden's for my TJ. Would all five tires have matching sidewalls?

Well mine are set to be delivered tomorrow so we'll see!! Can't wait!

I believe they say something about matching casings in their FAQ.

You can give them a call and specify what carcasses you want.

You can usually either specify which sidewalls you want, or they will provide matching sidewalls.

Usually the sidewalls they pick come from a tire with a similar tread design, like the Puma and BFG All-Terrain

You can pick which sidewalls you want and specify that you want them all to match. They will do it but it takes a bit longer to get them
