I concur.

They do seem to be decent tires however, but they have always had that goofy round inner tube look.

Actual ride height and tires mounted this evening.

Whatever PSI the tire place put in them and full vehicle weight the 36 irok measures just over a 36" tire. Unscientifically of course.





Front Wheel well



Rear Wheel well


Going to have to do some trimming, but I am not sure its as bad as first thought.

Wow, I'm impressed there's actually pics of the tires on wheels mounted on the vehicle now instead of 30 pics of an unmounted tire propped against the Jeep.
