    Alright, can get a set of 5 XLs (50% tread)shipped to me for 792
    or, I could get a set of 5 XZLs (60 % tread) for 1167. they both measure at 38X11R16.

    Who is running these and what do you think of them? I will be wheeling in muddy trails and some rocks. No bogging. If you got any pics of them on your truck/k-5 please post up.

    Thanks

    i own xls and so does mtnman. He swears by them. I haven't really used my truck with them yet.
    If you can...get both sets. My buddy has the xzls and loves them.

    I've never used them, but I absolutely love XZL's. I woulda loved a set in appromately 33-35" tall, but apparently, they are darn near impossible to find. :(

    Im a tall and narrow fan...

    I have a set of 11.00R16 XL (39's). They weigh approx. 100lbs each. They have a load cap. of 4800lbs EACH :eek1: . They are bumpy because of the large tread blocks.
    I paid $82.50 A PIECE :D for mine with approx. 50% tread left (17/32's).

    I haven't tried them on the trail yet, though.
