Nitto Trail Grapplers MT 35x12.50x17 (too heavy?)
Newb here....just got a 2015 JKHR. I'm going to put a 2.5" short arm lift on it. I'm also looking at Nitto Trailer Grapplers MT 35x12.50x17. I see that they weigh in at 80lbs. each and with the wheel it will be a little over 100lbs.
This seems like a lot of weight per tire for the Jeep. I know it's a durable vehicle but I worry about that much weight. I don't plan on regearing.
So I was looking for anyone running these tires and 4.10 gears....wanting some input on power loss, loss of acceleration, etc....I plan on doing some wheeling in Colorado and Moab. Also wanting to know what long term (or short term) problems I am looking at running a tire this heavy?
Actually input from anyone running any tire this heavy with 4.10 gears would be a great help.
