    Petersens has some Baja Claws on their 14 day Flattie, and they had two sidewall punctures in four time off road...

    That doesn't sound too good, but i dont know if theirs were Bias or not.

    the 14 day flattie had radials. I've heard only one complaint about the bias ply's, they are about 2" shorter than what they read. Most 35's are measuring in around 33". The other complaints are normal for a tire that aggressive. LOUD and SUCK ON PAVEMENT.

    I saw the new 16 x 38 x 15's live! They are way cool looking. However the only way I would get them as opposed to the Swampers is price. The bias are far superior if you spend alot of time off road and in rocks and stumps. The radials will be better for the highway. They are a step between the boggers and Sx Swampers. Sidewalls are mean. Todd

    I have the 35"claws on my Jimmy now and I just measured them and they are around 34.5" I don't know about noise or handling because the Jimmy is still being built and I just put the axles on the other day(Dana 60 up front and 14 boltFF in back) It will be a little while before it is rolling on its own power. Whether or not they handle good one thing is for sure, they do look bad ass!
