    Thanks to Ultimate 4 Wheel Drive Performance , I'm riding around on 36" IROK's as of last night. Here is a comparison of a 35" Wild Country TXR, a 36" IROK, and a very worn 35" BFG M/T (with my helper in the background)

    Backyard testing (yes, they rub with 4" of lift and cutouts)

    They are very soft tires. I can't wait to try them out on the trail. By design they seem like they'll do great in both mud and rocks, but wear very fast on the street. I suppose that just means I'll have to wheel as much as possible!

    Look good. Are you planning on adding some lift or adding some cutting /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif?

    Some of that. Cheap and effective /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif. I will post some more pics when I get the opportunity to get better ones.

    One sour note on the iroks is that mine are already chewed up pretty badly. We have that shale type rock around here and I found that almost every one of the scooped lugs thin lip has been ripped off. I was really quite dissapointed by this the first time I noticed.

    They are chewed up quite badly /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    I hope your luck is a little better than mine.
    traction is second to none though /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    It's ok; I'll pull you out /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    We bought a truck camper today - I'll post pics tomorrow over on Ultimate - and put it on the K30. We'll be taking at least 2 more wheeling trips this year, and hopefully several more local runs.
