    My old K5 project on 39.5 Iroks. THey are so soft and awesome. I never used them sadly but I'm going to buy another set for sure. I sold them cause I need 17" rim ones now.

    I have one run on mine and that was a short one due to breaking a front drive shaft. I already started rounding the edges and some tears on the lugs. They are quite soft but the granite in Texas is very hard on tires. I don't expect to get 2 seasons out of them (about 12-14 runs). I will probably run TSL's next time because they seem a little 'tougher' and also perform very well here. Time will tell and I may change my mind and keep running Iroks.

    yeah, save up your pennies and get the 42 Iroks, they have full tread depth... unlike the 39.5 version. If you are going to see lots of road miles, just stick with TSLs they ought to last longer. Unless you are rich and don't care about burning rubber... ;)

    Right front, your passenger side front tire is on backwards.

    And sled_dog, no offense or anything, but if you never ran yours, how do you know they are awesome? Just curious.
