    hey guys im leaning towards putting these on my k5 after i put my 10" springs on. the only thing holding me back is the 13.5" width they have. anyone have pics of their trucks with them? 13.5 is awfully skinny compared to the widths that come on boggers and ground hawgs. thanks.

    Koldsimer runs those on his rig(when it's not broke or on its side) I think he runs 6" springs and a 1 or 2 inch bodylift with a good amount of trimming.

    Edit: I just realized you were looking for 39.5's, not 36's, but these may help give you an idea on the width.

    Here is my Bro's burb

    36-13.50/15 on a 15x12 wheel.

    Here are the same size tires on a 15x10 wheel and another shot of some 38.5-15/16.5 hawgs for comparison. There's not much difference in the size.

    These kinda show the width. For some reason they look more narrow in PICS than in person. They are mounted on 16x10's w/ 4.25" BS.

    They look really good, not narrow as I expected. I like them a lot. The only thing is... in your profile you said you have 39.5' tires. ' Measures feet, " is inches. Either thats a HUGE truck that look in porportion, or your sig has a typo :haha:

    13.5 seems narrow but 39.5 Iroks are big.

    This is my old K5 project with 39.5 Iroks on 15x10 rims with 4.5" backspacing

    I sold them because I need a bigger rim size, but I will almost definetally be getting 39.5 IROKs again, maybe 42s.

    Damn I miss that K5... and damn did I used to work messy...

    iroks bubble out a bit and give that balloon look, which i totally dig. i think i have made my mind up to buy some. 10" of lift should clear the 39.5s... but im thinking along the lines of 42s kind of now, with either trimming, cutout fenders or fiberglass fenders.

    Get the 42's!!! You will be kicking yourself all the time if you dont. You should have plenty of room to fit them with a little trimming. Here's a couple pics of my half wore out 42's.

    I'm allready thinking that I'm gonna try the TSL's next. Iroks seem to be great riding tires, but The TSL's are a tad bit more aggressive, looking at least. I guess it depends on how these sling the goo. Soon as I get my front shaft, I'll find out.

    TSLs more aggressive looking??? Have you seen TSLs next to IROKs? IROKs make TSLs look like street tires...

    i agree... tsl's are a greak looking tire though, one of the best IMO. but those iroks are so sweet!!!

    sled dog, how much lift were you running?
    koldsimer, how much lift is on yours? i see you hacked your fenders.

    Right now the truck is a daily driver, on 35s, but im buying an 06 sierra soon and i just wanna make it a weedend cruiser. Mild offroading, nothing serious. I want the fenders to look clean. Im really leaning towards the fiberglass front end update that some company sells, it's only $800 and it looks good, weighs a lot less, and has bigger fender wells... I really don't want to lift anymore than 10", because that's really more than I want to go already, but I got a great deal on the springs.

    I would love to have 42s, but with 39.5s I think I'll be more than happy. If I want to go bigger, I'll just get some 42s or 44s next year when these ones are bald. :D

    mine was 4" BDS springs that were not worn in. And that was alll. It sat rather high for just being 4" springs I always thought. Hacked to heck fenders. Never saw the trail so yeah...

    I'm running 5.5" bds springs up front with a zero rate. In the back I have ord's 4" shackle flip and 4" superlift springs with the overload removed. It comes out to about 7.5" front and back.
