    1. TSL SXs

      I ran those with some tread grooving to add more flex. Still didn't flex that great, but they did flat spot every night causing a badump, badump, badump, ride until they heated up and smoothed out.

    2. MT/Rs
      Ran those for the shortest time of all... Didn't perform "great" in any conditions.

    3. IROK (eh)

      My favorite. I'm on my second set. I believe it's the best bang for the buck. Bias plies don't flat spot like the TSL SX. They also have a much softer compound which works great in the rocks, but wears quicker on the road.

    4. BFG KM not KM2

      No personal experience.

    I have heard many a good thing on Iroks from this site and other people who have used them and plan on getting them as my next tire. They come in many various sizes and are available in up to 39" on a 15" rimhttp://www.intercotire.com/site25.php. Another thing, when i was doing research on the right tire/size and price, i used lots off offroad magazines(peterson's 4 wheel and offroad and other smaller ones) and went through all the tire ads and could find up to a 15 dollar difference from ad to ad. It was like they might have the irok for 15 less but have ssr's for 15 more than the previous ad. Then you take that number and im sure there is some local shop that has a lowest price guarantee(Allsouth Autosports where BMXking works has this) and you can get the tire at the same price with convenience and maybe they even beat the price. Just some thoughts.

    Colin, I heard a 4wp add on the radio this morning for the x-mas season, and they said if you mentioned the add you would get 20% off :thumbsup:

    another vote for the Iroks as long as you dont do tons of highway, however "Dave" from out there drove his to Moab and back last year, I love mine in rocks, dirt, mud, snow, pavement manners aren't bad just wear faster, or look at the radials they come in a 37 for us anti-dubs.

    So I'm getting these from Dannyboy, which are 37x12.5x15 SSRs. He's giving me a smoking deal for the wheels and tires.

    Not my first choice obviously, but will be great for the price and the amount that I use this thing.

    Thanks Dan!
