Tire Pictures

I am thinking about running 36 or 38" 15.50 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. I currently have 33x13.50 15 Bajas now. Does anyone have pictures of their jeep with 36 or 38 15.50s on?

I am running a '83 CJ7 with 5" lift and 3" body Lift.

Thanks for your help,

Thanks,

Nice looking Jeep Hotmix.

Mine has a 4 Inch lift plus a slight shakle lift. The 35's rub a little at full turn, and the rears rub a little on the frame offroad, mainly because I have narrow track axles. I have since added a 1inch body lift since that picture was taken. I don't do a ton of offroading with it, so the rubbing is not really an issue.

I'd say for yours with a 4 inch lift 36's or better would look good.

The HP's have really held up well. I would recommend them if you drive more onroad than off. Off road a more aggressive tread may be better, but the HP's can hold there own in mud and snow.

Thanks for the reply. I have 4" of spring lift and a little shackle lift with 3" of Body lift. Supposed to be 8" totallift. The fenders are cut back already. It looks like at some time somebody had it set up for spring overs and dual shocks all around. They must have had 44s or something on it. Supposedly Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radials are supposed to come out this year with 38x15.50R15LTs. I see them on their web but not at any suppliers. Oh well.

Have a great day,
