Thank you! I love the look and the tires.

I've put a few hundred miles on these and I can't say enough good things. They look SUPER aggressive but ride very nicely. There is some road noise vs my stock Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's, but it's not intrusive or annoying. The ride isn't more harsh than factory, and the added weight per tire isn't very noticeable. I do have the 4.7HO though, so folks with the 4.0 might struggle a bit more to get them up to speed vs stock tires.

Haven't done much offroading yet, but i did a 30 mile, steep dirt trail up to 3,000 feet near Mexico and I never lost traction on the switchbacks. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Thanks for the feedback - glad you like the tyres, I am very pleased with them on my WJ, especially as we are now in a typically wet English summer!

On another note, I don't know how many photos I've looked at on this forum but I have just noticed that the US WJ's don't have a repeater indicator (blinker) on the front wings (fenders) - can't believe I had not noticed this before.
