    my rear tires are way chewed up after one offroad trip in 2wd... i just had to give it more gas than usual and the rocks chewed them up.. what kind of tires do your friends have? The boggers might chunk easier

    what do they have for rigs? if your running a full size chevy with a bunch of jeeps, its prolly cuz you have more weight per square inch on your tire footprint

    Is it bias or radial, is it in a steer application ? Looks like chamfer wear from being in a steer app. Is it smooth, or are the chunks of tire missing jagged ?

    I run 37" mt/r's and the same thig happens to me. Its called "chunking." When you get into the rocks and have to get on the gas and spin the tires, it chews chunks out of them. I always thought it was normal. :dunno: Doesnt hurt the traction of the tires.

    I have the same problem with my last 2 sets of MTR's. This is normal wear and tear out on the rocks here. Most of my friends who wheel hard have the same problems. Also if your fenders aren't trimmed enough the body could be chunking them out....

    My MTR's do the same thing because of the rocks. The more jagged the rocks and the more tires you spin the worse it is. Me and my buddies have ripped up alot of MTR's over the years in AZ. Matt (az-k5) has ripped entire lugs off of his old 37" MTR's all the way to the steel belts.

    Ya but I sold those tires to some web wheeling smuck in Colorado :D :haha: .

    I am starting to get some more chunking lug peeling on the 40's now. It is normal.

    The type of rip in the pic is more common with body contact.
