    i like mine in the snow, we went and played in some 2-4 foot deep stuff and they put my truck in the lead with 36's and i would run off and leave everybody cause i could break the trail faster than averyone could keep up with me.

    How are they wearing? Do you get much street time on them? I hear they wear quickly if used on the street.....

    What width rims are you running? As I recall you were running stock rims :dunno:

    Just wondering because I am running the 36x13.50x15 Iroks on a 15x8 rim and they crown quite a bit. I am gonna try a lower air pressure, but am wondering if changing to a wider rim would be better. Saw you say that you had 15,000 miles on yours with good results which is the other reason I am asking you.

    Do they looked crowned at that pressure? Not sure what I'm getting at here....but my thought is that even if they look crowned to the eye, that if they are aired to the right psi the contact patch will be across the width of the tread despite looking crowned at the top.... :dunno: hard to explain :1zhelp:

    And what it comes down to I don't want to have to pay more money to swap rims, my 15x8"s are pretty new and all.
