My bad, I thought you were rolling on 35's for awhile and switched back.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

They've been a pretty great tire. Decently quiet on the road, good grip aired down, all around good. They do make more noise now that they are worn but it doesn't bother me. They also chunk a little more offroad than I'd like but I imagine that is to be expected.

Your tires probably chunked because you didn't air down the first couple times you took em offroad. That's what happens. My MTZs are chunked too but only from getting them in a hole and spinning them to try and grab some traction. They are a great tire though, comparable to KM2s and MTRs. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again, just wish they weren't so darn expensive compared to other tires.

Btw, what tire do you plan on getting when you step up to 37s Jones?

I'd like to stay with them if I can afford it. I'll just see what I'm working with when the time comes.

is he skipping the 35 stage? C'mon everyones gotta have their days of wheeling on 35s!!

and yeah tires definitely get louder after wheeling trips. My km2s are loud as piss on the way back from a trail, then they round off again and are normal. Also my km2s are chunked as hell. but we all know why that is

no doors, no top, no problems

Nothing to report at the moment. Will be installing the new speakers this weekend when I get home. However, my stepdad picked up a full float 8 lug Dana 60 and is working on a deal for a '73 Commando with a running V8. We may have us a new trail rig. We're just waiting for the guy to clean the fuel system so we can test drive it.
