Default light weight 36 or 37s

Looking to go from 35 km2s to something a little larger. My km2s weigh 64lbs a piece are there any tires slightly larger that are somewhat close in weight?

Looking for 36 or 37s unless they make a true 35. My tires only measure 33.5

Thanks

If you're already putting holes in sidewalls the last thing you want is a lighter tire.

I run 36" super swampers on my tj. Locked front and rear with no issues. Im sure I could break it but sometimes alittle common sence will save parts. They were wearing out pretty fast on the street, so I picked up some cheap 35" bfg all terrains for the street.

Interco m16's are light weight but I think they may be thin. On the other hamd I have not read a review complaining about punctures.

I would love to but don't have a welder nor a place to do the swap just yet. I would like some new tires that I can run one more year

I'm fine with 35s just hate how they only measure 33.5 I normally don't break and a tire slightly bigger with allow me to crawl more obstacles

A bigger tire will just get you further into the trail before you're stuck. Our last trip I was the 2nd smallest tire on 40s and I was still hanging up trying to follow the 44s, 43s, and 42s. Decide what you want to do and build/size appropriately.

A d30 with the caps tacked in place will handle a hell of a lot more than people think they will.

IMO, a D30/35 combo is very safe with 33" tires. You can still break it, but it's safe. A 35-37" tire can be wheeled safely but it takes someone with restraint to keep from breaking them. I wheeled mine pretty hard with 35" Krawlers before I broke them............... but I eventually broke them. The way I see 2fst4u driving, they won't last long.

I don't see a big plus to tacking the caps in place. Sure, they eliminate the snap ring from coming loose but in most of my axle joint breaks, I broke the pin off the spider or twisted out an ear. Snap rings were still in place.
