My brother and I were out for six hours straight pulling cars. This was taken at a gas station, after we cleared all the cars, this semi decided to leave...

I bought the tires 1 week before. I was certain they were going to suffer, but amazingly, due to the ice and wetness of the concrete, they hardly had any wear. I was amazed at the traction from the toyos, and was hesitant about buying them. I wanted the goodyear wranglers, but couldnt afford them. After that night, I was praising my tires!! Quadra drive helped.

That's cool. Now you know your four wheel drive works on your Jeep, and how!

It must of been the aftermarket wheel then. When I bought mine it had a BB and 265/65/17 and it would rub in reverse....

Switched to JK takeoffs with the same tires haven't a problem since but thought the tires looked smaller

Maybe 265/70s are in my future. Just have to convince the wife

That's what I get for thinking aloud in a post.

I was referring to the wheels that used to be on my Jeep.

Quote from YouTube: "I pulled over 60 cars that night including two 18 wheelers!"

Before I read your above post, I'd assumed you went through about 6 or 7 sets of tires at the rate you were going!
