Does anyone have pictures of Trxus STS Tires on thier rig?!??

I am looking in to purchasing a set of 33 12.5 15 Trxus STS for my DD. I would like to see what they look like on a TJ or similar jeep for that matter, but it is hard to find pictures of this combination. If you have any thoughts on the matter please comment.

Thanks

I dont have pics yet but I love the tires myself. I do mostly trails and mud and they work for me great. I dont do extreme stuff though. I also drive about an hour to work every third day and they have done great on the road too.

I heard the radials are pretty damn good for sand and gravel and street use. Plus they have recently upgraded the tread design to something a little flatter, a little more aggressive, lots of subtle changes.

I've got some pics on my HD of other people's Jeeps with them - I'll upload later.

I'll be getting some locally available tires next because I can't afford the international shipping on the STS's yet - but in the future I'm planning on running either 33 or 36" diameter by 14.50 wide. In the LONG term future I want to run the 38x15.50 STS radial.

I think having the right pressure is key and the new tread design is flatter and hopefully that leads to more even wear.

They're siped so they're not going to be useless in the rain even if they're not the best... I've read that some guys see 40,000 miles out of them on heavy trucks and Hummers... and that sand and snow is where they excel.

It's become a popular show-truck tire so it can't be too bad on the street.

Yeah, it seems like all the reviews I have read about them boast good on road, sand, and snow performance as well as ok mud and rock performance. There was one review that was not good, but i believe i have read more good than bad. I would like to hear from jeep owners their thoughts because I am seriously considering these tires. I think they go a bad rap from the start, but they are better than what others perceive them to be.
