i didn't read through this whole thread but i read on pirate and checked it out on interco web site that their 36 measures taller than their 37. Kind of interesting i thought.

edit: for the IROK

My rig is set up to run almost any tire, but I am running 35s. Yes I can run larger tires, but I find the balance of lower COG on 35s is better for varying conditions. I wheel all over the country si a balanced approach works best. When my 35s wear out I will probably stay on 35s. I have run 31s, 33s and 35s on this rig and it will do most things with enough finesse.

It was true that bigger was better, until Telico closed down due to ORV use. Now smaller is better. I'm personally going to run some pirellis on my next rig.

That makes sense. Everybody from the GL area should drive 2000 miles to Oregon and have a discussion about tires.

Who's in?

I'm getting those Pirellis before I trek cross country to discuss though... Then I'll get like 17 mpg instead of 16 mpg.

I don't see a problem with any tire size someone chooses, as long as they are friendly and into the sport who cares, we all start somewhere.

This.

I will probably go 37 for my next set. I had 35's and they felt just a tad small, but then again, my K5 is a bit bigger than a jeep. I have a lot to do before then so things could change tho.
