    I am looking at the 39.5x13.50x15, They are good in rocks and mud right?? How do they wear on the street, remember these are the RADIALS.
    Thanks

    being as they are RADIALS, they won't be as good as the BIAS in off-road, but they will be better on the road.
    i'd say get them if you want better wearing iroks

    ive never owned a set, but i talked to a guy who had 40s, he said they wore horribly, his were almost worn out after around 6,000 miles. that was on a HUGE S-10 with a stock motor, so it wasnt because of his right foot habits.

    then again, maybe he's full of it, but theres a little food for thought for ya /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I just bought two IROK 36x13.50x16.5 radials for the rear of my 89 K5 with a 6" lift and I am going on thursday to get two for the front. With just the rears it tends to wonder on the freeway a bit so I am hoping that will cure the problem. Man they look really good. I have not been off road yet but I here they work well on rocks. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Must be full of it because they don't make IROK radials in 40s.

    I personally see no point in running an IROK radial. IROKs have the void ratio of boggers and a shallow tread depth. Even the radial won't last that long and it's going to be weaker because it's a radial.

    I'd choose something else. If you want Swampers, maybe look into the TSL Radial.

    I didn't know that Interco made any tires that are 40" tall. They do have 39.5" Irok radials though...
