I'm pretty sure i've measure tire height by wrapping something around it to get the circumference then divided by pi.


Yes i'm a dork

I should have put an "*" in with a disclaimer that the rims were at least 1/2 way close to one another......

Well, the guy from Specility tires never called me back yesterday, and I was in a 10 hour long meeting, so I didn't have time to pester him at all. Already left two voice messages for him today.

he will eventually call me back.

here's my input, if you do get to return the tires I would suggest a 38.5x14.5x15 sx (actually 37.5" tall) or a 38x12.5x15 sx (actually 37.0" tall) or if you dont mind spending a little more for a better tire then the 38x13 or 37x12.5 creepy crawler.

Well, long story short, I'm being taken care of. And after I'm complete, I will post up all the details to handle this like I did, with a good response.

STOA only produces Irok's and SSR's, and Boggers, so I have to choose one of the three.

I don't want the SSR's, or boggers, and I don't think I can fit 39.5" tires under my jeep, so that is what I'm working out with them.

Just received my RGA number for my iroks to be picked up monday. WHen they receive them, and make sure they are in "like new" shape, I will in turn receive SX's.

Took me a couple days, but it was easier then I thought it would be.

SXs will absolutly kill your axles.

and you know SXs run small right? My old 38.5 SXs were over 2" smaller tan my 39.5 boggers.
