    Well, they llok cool, but HOLY CRAP they cost a pretty penny! Lots of great tires out there that cost less and are proven (Interco, ProComp, BFG, etc) /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Three years ago nobody had heard of the Pro-Comps or M/T Baja Claws and both have caught on.

    im still not a big fan of the pro-comps. Nothing wrong with them, just not a big fan.

    I'm the total opposite. I think the pro comps are one of the best tires to come out recently. The claws I think are generally worthless. They've been a total disappointment for M/T, that's for sure.

    I saw a set of 38" grapplers on spinner wheels mounted on a cadillac escalade this past saturday. It had 10" of lift.The dude brought it back to the shop because of a noise coming out of the transfer case. It broke some clutch bands and rear ring & pinion because he did not break in gears correctly. That dude has spent some serious dollars on that ride.

    I'd love to run them if only they came in a smaller rim. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif Those and the Toyo M/T 38 x 15.50 /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif but they both want you to run huge rims /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    They look nice , but they come in funky big rim sizes. I would consider running them when I can go down and find a 15 inch rim size in stock at a fair price /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
