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.

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.

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!
