Stickies are over rated.

Joe, you never said if the krawlers are stickies or not.

I don't know why everyone is making a big deal about the Iroks being radials. For a true off road rig I don't think it makes much difference.

i owned 2 sets of irok radials.39.5 and 41's. i liked them. i slashed one but that was running the tire off the rim for 5 minutes, ramming logs, for a fast time.

he was looking at the blues jim.

I think the radial talk came with the new 41 pitbull. What he has now are radials and he likes them so why not get a radial again. I wouldn't be apposed to them I don't think.

FWIW, Curly told me based on what he has seen in Canada that he would never run a Pit but loves his Iroks.
Based on the options, I would go Iroks.

I've never run a radial that big but don' see why a radial wouldn't work out just fine. I wouldn't hessitate to run a radial on my TJ if it made sense at the time.

i slashed a 37" ssr radial on a small tree root in a rut. i was going pretty slow, and it was not pinched or anything weird. i put my tsls through much worse without an issue. perhaps the irok radial sidewalls are better than the ssr's.

im sure the pitbulls are great tires, i just hate the looks of the rocker. i cant stand the looks of the new mtr either.

i have abused my iroks a little now. i did break a valve stem, but otherwise they seem to be holding up.

i like the ltb's alot, and was about to buy a set. but i could not pass up the deal on my iroks.
