    I was just wondering what people here are getting for tread life on a baja claw, espically 33's. Also if anyone can measure the actuall hight of these I would apprecaite it.
    BTW Im not talking about the radials

    I knew this guy I worked withs cousin who bought some Baja tires from where I worked that we put on his truck. They were bald in less then 10,000 miles and he was pissed. I asked, it was mostly street drivin. Don't buy the tires for street use.

    I talked to a guy who had 38" Claws on a Chevy truck and he said they were wearing really good. I rode in his truck and it rode smooth. I thought they looked pretty big also compared to my 38" SX's I had at the time. I can't remember if he said how they were offroad, although one of the 4x4 mags did a tire test and they said they did great in the mud against the TSL's, Bogger's, STS's, and IROK's.

    Oh, I also think those tires were the older tread design, maybe they changed the rubber compound too /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    As with any tire, especially directional, you must rotate constantly. I rotate my claws every 1500 miles and they have been wearing great. I think their forte is in the rocks at about 11-13psi. They are exceptionally smooth and quiet on the road.

    My 33" Baja Claws (bias ply) are bald at about 20,000 miles. The actual height (no joking) is 30.5 inches... of course that's with no tread left /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif And mine are NOT quiet on the road
