    anyone seen any weight stats on the irok? interco's site lists every other stat about the tire except its weight. I am looking for an accurate (within a pound or 2) weight of both the 36x13.50x15 and the 39.5x13.50x15. anyone seen any info posted on the www somewhere? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    thanks for the link to the thread... wonder bout them 36s. If we had an accurate weight of a 36" TSL we could do some simple math and get a pretty good guestimate of the 36" irok... anyone?

    yikers, them iroks are light! looks like if you have some light forged aluminum rims you could have 39.5s at under 100 pounds. not bad! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    How come if Iroks's are lighter, people are saying that a dana 60/14 ff setup would not handle them, would it be easier on them since they are lighter than tsl(or boggers) ??????????

    No people are saying D60/14 wouldn't handle 49s, we are talking 39s, big difference. People with 44 TSLs and Boggers break D60s with less trouble than you may think.

    yeah, Id put any irok under a d60 other than 49s... unless you have a silly camo style axle... sandy cone made 300m shafts etc etc.

    iroks are light for their size (compare em to SXs!) but no 49" tire is gonna be light...
