38" MT/R-K's?

Anyone have experience with the 38" Goodyear's? Trying to decide between them and the 37" PBR's....

Not gonna bite, first post and asking about 37's or 38's. My guess, troll from another Wrangler JK forum...

Ha. No troll here. I know the 38's have been impossible to get for the past couple of years but, evidently, they're available now -- I've gotten quotes from three different sources all saying they can have them to me within a day or two. True, this is my first post, I was just seeing if anyone on this forum had ever ran them as no one has on the forum I typically frequent. A 14.5" tire is crazy-wide, just trying to figure out how much is going to have to be cut out to make room. I'm flat-fendered, 3.5" of lift, 17x9 raceline monsters, and would consider a 1" BL if I absolutely had to.

What size axle assemblies are you running? What size lift? Brakes? Steering? Driveshafts? Intended use?

Check with Dennis Wood at Teraflex. He runs the 38s on his Hemi JKUR. Bear in mind he has Tera axles front & rear (44 / 60).

We run the MTRK's in a 40x1350x17 on our 2013 JKU. They work well. I am sure the 38's would be the same deal. The Rockers are nice but they are HEAVY! If your going to DD this any, I would run the MTRK's over the Rockers.

We have free shipping on them so let us know if there is anything we can do to help!!
