If I don't know what im missing, Why did I just go and buy two of the top snow/ice rated tires they make? I DD 100+ a day, Plus the parts running, I know exactly what im gaining on days the TJ with kevlars gets out. The a/t's are nice and roll smooth, But have no huge biting edges like others.
Yeah, 55lbs is what I thought too! Decent tire, But not at that weight on a jeep.
If you get a flat in the backwoods its easy to change a tire. Sand, Gulch's, Thick clay mud or swampy black etc its the same. I have done it many times and by now its expected unless the tire precaution has been taken.
Hi-Lift jack and a 2"x12" foot pad for it, Or a couple logs or rocks. If it pushes them in, Add more.
Winch is best to have with accessory bag, Snatch block and straps/tree saver. Rig it up with a strap around the axle, String it through trees until it lifts that tire. Might take some time, But it has to be fixed regardless and I have done it many times on the farm with fence posts.
Either tire will do what you are looking for, Plain and simple. But the more pro/con, The Kevlar is going to win every time. Its too versatile of a tire that it is used in everything, Everywhere. The trxus, The PNW guys like this and toyo m/t's. Great tires too for their environment.
I highly doubt you will be disappointed in the trxus, You just have to buy them and try them in your area and elements. The kevlars have not been around forever, So drop them from the list, Id either be on TSL SX's or mud grapplers. Every tire will fail, None is exempt, Good luck.
