Default maxxis creepy crawlers

Who's running a set of 35/12.5/16s and how do you like them?

What do they measure while mounted are they a true 35.....

Ironically I run Creepy's in 40's and KM2's in 40's.
I wouldn't trade my Creepy's for ANYTHING.
Outshines KM2's anyday. As Tab said expensive, when they wear out, I'll gladly plunk down the bucks for new ones.
They run right on size.

On a recent trip to Canada we had two of us with them, mine in 40 and another in 38. They worked great.

I have a set of creepy's on the yota in the 37x12x16 flavor. I love the tires I can run them at 5 psi on the trail and when I do the little bit of street driving I do I bum them up to 15 psi. The only thing I don't like about them is when it's cold and snowy they don't work to well but that could also be to the fact that the 4.3 just can't get the wheels spinning fast enough to climb. I'm putting a 5.3 in the yota so we will see if its a lac of power or if the tires are just not as good in the snow.

And on my 8" wide beadlocks the tire only measures 35 7/8 to 36 1/8 but that with low air pressure.

If you can buy them for 300 then you should buy 1352 sets of them and make a pile of cash reselling them. I think the 40's were around 800 a tire.

I would if I had that kind of money. Thats a deal from a member on here normally about $380 a tire. Being for a 16" rim compared to your 17" helps

You can buy 40's for 600$ a tire or less all day long....filthy motorsports is cheapest i found at 569$....they list the 35's at 329$. The price on these tires varies drastically.....i asked a vender on this board for a price a while back and about had a heart attack since it was over 100$ a tire higher than other places, but still lower than some places too

Who is the member on here? If I can get a good deal I would possibly be interested in 4 more 37's
