    Do you carry a spare? These seem to be tough enough for it to be unlikely that you would slice a tire, and if you did, they're stiff enough that you could drive on a "flat" tire as it wouldn't really be flat.

    Not personally running them but have a couple of freinds who do. Yes bring a spare. Any sidewall can get sliced. These are pretty tough but I saw a sagebrush go right through the sidewall of one.

    I'll be running mine with beadlocks. I'm going to carry a tube to use as instead of a spare.

    At least that's the plan right now. :dunno: I'm just tired of carrying around big ol' spare tires.

    I didn't think about just carrying a tube or two. I'm mainly trying to figure out where to carry that monster or how to get away without it.

    Shawn, how are you carrying yours around? Got a pic of your truck on them? I've seen one, but couldn't find it.

    Edit: Just looked at your cardomain :doah: What's the backspacing on those wheels?

    This one shows it.

    I have my 37" spare mounted behind the rear seat standing up across the cargo area. A 1100R16 would fit there, but the 37" MTR blocks the view good already...

    the spare is a 38 amd will fit all the way I just happen to have spare drive shafts and axel shafts between the tire and seat.

    my tires run at 5psi or nothing, I have even put maybe 100 or 150 street miles on them that way and left them aired down since thanks giving. otherwise they were at 30 psi before.

    back spacing is 6 or 7 inches?? at first I hated it, however I feel it has worked well to my advantage:D

    Where'd you get them from. That's a pretty good deal.
