35-37" after D44/9" axle swap?
Ok, I'm finishing up my LA upgrade and swapping in my locked D44/9" with 4.88's. I currently have 33" MTZ's that I bought when the '92 XJ was still my DD. It is now primarily a trail rig, but will see some street time to/from the trails. I'm debating whether I should go with 35 or 37" tires. I love my MTZ's, but I'm also considering going with something more aggressive. A tire that is great in the mud and on rocks, but isn't completely horrible on the road.

Duratracs are great.

Not in the mud and rocks they aren't.

Upsize the MTZ's, consider Krawlers, but I've ran Duraflats - they are not tough at all toyotaguy

I'm not interested in Duratracs, KM2's or anything similar. If I am going to stay with somethbing like that I'll just get bigger MTZ's.

I was just reading a bit about Krawlers and thbey are definitely in the running.

MT/R are always a solid choice

Look into Maxxis. I haven't run them, but I know they are good tires. Same for Pit Bulls.

I can read, and have been, so I'm not looking for comments lime. . . "I've head that. . . " or "JP magazine did an article on. . . ". I'm more looking for input from personal experience.

MTR's? Don't think they would be much different than my MTZ's, which again. . . I absolutely love. So, anything comperable to the MTZ's are not in the running here. It is either stick with MTZ's or go with something more aggressive. I just don't have experience with anything else, so I'm asking for your opinions from experience after running whatever tires at least a few times on thbe trails and the road.

Yeah, I read about both of these yesterday. I think for the price and durability I like the Maxxis Creepy Crawlers. They sound tough as ****, look badass, and aren't as expensive as some of their competitors. Doesn't sound like you can go wrong with PBR's when it comes to performance, but they are a bit pricey and it sounds like they will wear quicker. I don't have enough money to be picking up new tires every year or even every other year. I don't plan on wheeling TOO often every year with my busy schedule, so I'm hoping to squeeze like 5 years out of this set of tires.

Go ask the same question over on Pirate, where more guy run bigger *****.

koolaid5 03-22-2013 06:26 PM

hahahahaha..... I just observe on pirate and use it for research. I don't really post there. I doubt I'll ever be pirate worthy, so I keep my posting on here and NAXJA for the most part.

koolaid5 03-22-2013 06:27 PM

and I think I have it narrowed down to MTZ's or Maxxis Creepy Crawlers. Not sure about 35's or 37's yet.

MOBBiN 03-22-2013 08:17 PM

Why not 38.5s?

koolaid5 03-22-2013 08:19 PM

Sounds good to me. Do you have some you are going to sell me cheap?

MOBBiN 03-22-2013 08:34 PM

Are they that much more expensive then 37s? I was just asking why your limiting yourself to 35-37s.

koolaid5 03-22-2013 08:36 PM

Well if you're going to think like that then why not 39's and heck that's close to 40's. . . So why stop there?
