Try Lou at Elias 4 Wheel Drive, 978-597-8432. He's a couple of hours from you up 495. I'm about to push the go button on these as well with a set of beadlocks as I've heard the LTBs don't flex well and are worthless in the rocks unless aired down to single digits (like 5 to 7 psi range).

34-10.5 ltbs run way way small...like 32.7-33'' real world on the rim inflated but NOT on the vehicle. 34/9.5-1 tsl bias run about 33.5 tall and are nasty lil skinnies. ive run 34-9.5 and 34-10.5 on my tj. im ready for a 35 ish size and am curious as to what the 35 ltbs run size wise ...its actual rolling diameter is important to me , jeeps turbocharged now and tire size swaps seem to send me back to the dyno to tune my fuel n timing maps and at 100 bucks an hour to dial everything in for the all terrains and a second session to program for swampers . ideally a 34.5 rolling diameter would simplify as the load on the motor wouldnt change much other than weight of the tire causing a bit more lag....but in low range it doesnt seem to matter much.

all LTBs bigger than 34 are on backorder because they lost their "bigger" manufacturing facility in China, and had to move it to Mexico, I believe. Or maybe it went the opposite direction...Mexico to China.

And before people start going on about china and mexico...why do you think they're so cheap? When you can get a 47" LTB for the price of a 35" bogger, there's got to be cost cutting somewhere.

34-10.5s were a disapointment..size wise that is. everyone i wheel with has run them all complain about the size...just about any rim combo they run small, like 32.5 to 33 actual. if that works for you cool but lotta folks think thier getting ''almost a 35'' in reality almost a 33
they perform good in our eastern pa terrain, on a 7 to 8'' rim will almost never pop a bead even in low teens air pressure ,and are tough as woodpecker lips, but do wear quickly and are typical bias ply headache to balance, flatspotting in cold .

People aren't likely to order a tire like an LTB without researching real-world numbers. Those who do aren't going to notice that the tire runs a bit short. They buy it for the number on the spec sheet, put it on, and drive it to the mall.

There was some trial and error done that revealed that they ran small. But they still sell, to those who want a cheap narrow 33" swamper, or to those who want knobby tires that fit under their fender flares, but don't want to pay for a real TSL.

what in the heck do you mean by dont want to pay for a real tsl? I have the 34x10.5 15 and think they are a great tire.
