Finally! New tires mounted and balanced

I can't do much of a review yet, since I just got them mounted today, but I love them so far!

32x11.5r15 Kenda Klever MT.
They were $588 delivered for the set.

Certainly an upgrade from the old mismatched tires that were on it!

Little big for the stock suspension. But it'll work well enough until I can do new OME springs.

15"

They're actually some old Cragar 330s that I painted black.

Looks like you have a bent leaf spring on the drivers front......might want to take care of that before something bad happens.

Oh, and tires look good too!

Yeah, it's a little twisted.... So is the passenger side.
It's been like that for years, so hopefully it'll hold together another year or so before I replace them all.

The old tires were about 15 years old, so I figured that was a higher priority!
I'd hate to experience a 70mph blowout in a swb Jeep...

Those look pretty good. Be interested in hearing how well they do off road. I have some Kenda ATV tires (Executioners) that I really like. They're heavy as heck so they rob some power, but they pull great as long as there's a bottom.

So far I'm VERY impressed!
I finally got a chance to try them out today. The tread is DEEP, and they chew through sand and mud like it isn't even there.
I've had to air them up a little higher than I expected. I started at 28 and they just wondered all over the road. But, they're at 35 now and seem to be tracking much better.
