    My first run on my 39.5" Iroks sucked. At 6 psi I could hardly grip the granite I was climbing. On a rock, soil mixture climb, I wasn't getting any traction either. Oh well, I still have faith once they are broke in a little.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that at 8psi I was hardly getting any sidewall flex but again this is due to them being new I hope.

    I wanted to be more impressed with IROKs, but thus far, the only thing I'm impressed with about them, is the price.

    I ran a set of 42in. "old" TSL's on a '73 k20 for a couple of years they did awsome in the dirt-n-mud, but not worth
    a $#@% in the snow... These new IROKS look promising, keep me posted as to how they treat you /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    My dad and I both run them, first trip out they were ok, but they start to break in and once you get a little rock rash on em holy crap they work bitchin, Im amazed how well they grip. I run the 36's and my dad runs the 40's.

    I run them and they are incredible /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gifI am probably at about 55-60% tread life on mine now and I get decent bulge at 10 psi. Its hard to notice on the flat ground but when you get into the rocks you'll really notice them wrapping around. Alot of us were running them in Moab - everything from the 36" to 42" tires - and not one person had any negative comments other than tread life on pavement. Mine did not enjoy the drive to Moab and back. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif I also have no doubt that they will do excellent in the snow as well because of how well they handle in the heavy rain. They make roads feel dry.

    I would highly recommend these tires to anyone. I will probably end up using them again when I go to 39.5's.

    One thing I forgot to mention though is that they seem to chunk alot worse than the TSL's. Mine are chunked up pretty bad - but they still chew like crazy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
