No time with them yet. I am getting my gears put in next week so I will get some road time then. Going to test them in the rocks on the 29th as well. They seem really well made, the tread feels stickier than my Krawlers which seems weird to me.

It is basically a science. I should have said that it feels softer. That can be felt right?

Agreed, I would be worried about submarining with a 4 point harness.

Honestly it seems overkill to me for a trail Jeep. I will only be using the lap belt 99% of the time anyways. are you guys running 5 point? Is it a PITA?

Not currently running one, but I've done a little reading into it. Most harness manufacturers only recommend 4 point harnesses for "show cars" due to the submarining issue. Check out the note about 4 point harnesses in this article.

Street Review of tires:

Awesome! Between the weight loss in the wheels and tires, it feels like I have a V8 now. Smooth and quite is a strange sensation in the Jeep after 2 years on Krawlers. The airsoft pellets ballanced out perfect, and there is very very little lateral imballance in the tires.

This Saturday I will try them out in some good ole slick/wet/muddy creek rock at Moonlight Offroad.

What speed did you get up to? I am contemplating going to the airsofts because I can't get my tires balanced. I don't quite understand how the pellets work to balance them though???
