    Started mounting my Dirt Grips on my new bead locked wheels. its pretty easy to mount wheels on these things. longest part of it is the criss cross bolt torqueing process. im very happy with the results. tires are 38-15.50 16, rims if you didn't see them in a earlier post a couple of weeks or so ago are 16x12 weld SS II's that i had bead locked by OMF. i didn't buy there bolt "domes" that protect the bolt head from damage cause there 30 bucks per wheel for 12 that you put under every other bolt. i bought a 6 ft piece of 6061 aluminum for 30 bucks that will make enough for almost 10 wheels, so i will have plenty extra as they get damaged on the rocks. there 138 lbs, the rim was 30 lbs. is that a heavy tire?

    Nice. Those look sweet. I have heard that PJs are heavy tires. How did they balance? What is the true OD of the tire now that it is mounted?

    I have not ballenced them yet i have three mounted and inflated, the other two i will do this weekend. i found out its much easier if you let them sit out in the sun and get a bit soft before you mount them. true od is just at 38 in. i forgot to post that pic.

    smokkey, i have had these tires for a long time.
