    I run the 33-13.5-15 Rockers for about a year and love them:bow: . They kick ass in the rocks and the mud. They ballance easy. They have decent road manners. I popped one off the bead and I had to drive on it for about 25 yards or so and it turned inside out and it did not hurt the tire at all. I have had TSLs and Boggers and the Rockers do better for me than either of them. My next tire will be the 37-13.5 15 Rocker.

    I have been running the 39.5x 16 for a while now. I have nothing but good luck with them. I have not balanced them and I still drive 60 on the highway. Now that I keep them out of the fenders they are wearing very well. I have them on a 16x10 rim and have only lost 1 bead running low air pressure, and I think that was because the valvestem was leaking. I see no reason to run any other tire.

    I also have been considering these tires for my latest project.
    Keep the reports coming.

    Something to be aware of..... They are WIDE!!! IIRC the spec said the tire was 16.5 wide at section width. On a 10" rim, mine are 17".

    check the may issue of fourwheeler mag, they recomend double beadlocks, also i have seen 2 come off the bead in the rocks at about 15 psi with no bead locks and they were on some skinny wheels, other than that they look awesome, if your not lookin at the MT than dont worry about the mag lol
