    Iroks hands down are some of the best tires you can get for the rocks.

    I'd go with some 29x20 low-pros with spinners if I was you, since you ARE gay.

    i like the tread design and weight of iroks... but their tread depth leaves something to be desired...

    39.5
    -----
    iroks = 20/32"
    TSLs = 25/32"

    42"
    ----
    iroks = 24/32"
    TSL = 27/32"

    the irok also has much more void in its tread, which means its starts out shorter and wears out faster.

    What? :confused: Did you change your mind on the rockwells and 53"s? They're not very well mannered on the street after all. Make her a trailer queen, and I'll make you a helluva deal on tires and axles LOL. :grin:

    Now I get it John, you said you couldn't wheel last time because you were getting motor work done. You've been holdin' out on us.

    Nice hood, BTW.


    Back on topic: I voted Iroks, just because that's what I would get.

    A difference of .156" on the 39s and .093" on the 42s :thinking: I dont think a difference that small would ever sway me one way or the other on a tire.

    The TSL is a good tire but,IROCs stick like glue to rocks.On the rocks,similar build and weight rigs,one with TSLs,one with IROKs,the difference in performance is obvious.No question.

    Thats what made my decision :D
