Anybody running these and have pics?
No, but they look like they would perform good overall don't they?
This is a buddy of mine 37x12.50x16.5 ssrs I can get more pics if you want to see it at rest
37x12.5x16 on 16x10's. i ran these tires for a good while. they are great dual purpose tires. they aren't so hot in the mud though, gotta spin the hell outta them.
Thanks for the pics guys...
I was mainly concerned with proportion of height to width, don't want something TOO skinny looking...
It's kinda been a tossup between these and 36 x 13.5 Iroks..
I want the most aggressive tire I feel I can get away with on the street... Mileage isn't a huge concern, but yeah, I'd like to be able to get 25 g's out of em minimum... Pretty confident I can get 30, 35 out of the SSR's, not sure on the Iroks...
I'd be curious as to a comparison between the 2 when it comes to road noise and mud, snow and rain performance...
Hopfully tax return will force me to decide...
Well I can tell you that the green truck in the pictures ran all of poisen spider mesa golden spike and gold bar rim( well most of it) in 2 wheel drive. He didn't tell anyone he was broke cause he didn't want to ruin anyone elses day. The t-case to trans adaptor broke so in slickrock the tires do good. He does good in the mud too. I know he has about 30,000 miles on the tires right now and they are about 30% there. They do good just trailriding too.
Sorry for the Hijack, but what kind of lift was he running? Any problems blowing a bead with the 16.5 inch rims? Im running 16/5's and I worry about tossing my beads.
i sure love that color.
I have the 37x12.5x16. They do pretty well on the road from what I can tell. My truck is not a daily driver so I cant tell you you how long they last. There are a lot of guys running this style of tire on the streets around here and they do seem to hold up well.
Wow what a great pic especially the scenery and oh yea the guy pissing in the back round.
he nearly blends with the background IMO
have a set on some 16x10 steelies... have had these tires for about 4 years and they are awesome, they are very tough (10 ply) and have good road manners, never had a flat and have found dozens of nails stuck in the tires and have pretty bad chunks missing but they all hold up, im gonna be getting some bigger tires soon and i dont know if i wanna sell them, very solid tires
Wow, thats a good testimonial, thanks!
I'm pretty sure these are what I'm gonna run....
One of my friends has sold me a set of 37x12.5r15s SSRs but I havent put them on my rig yet . Ive gotta do a bunch of things before I can get them up there.
i forgot to mention that they wear pretty damn slow for swampers too
i run 37/12.5r16's on the truck i bought in october... they are nice. they are quiet on the road for thier size, are tough, and do well in mud, trails, ect.
I run the 37x12.50's on 15's. I really like them as well. Mine have zero wight on them and they balance just fine. The only down side I can think of is the siping encourages chunking if ya spin on a sharp rock edge. I just wish they made them in a 40 cause I am ready to step up. There are more pics in my gallery.
super clean rig mtblazer!
The green truck is a cheap 6" lift spring on the front (unknown brand) homebrew shackle flip on the back and no he has never blown a bead, of course he doesn't air down too much. I think the lowest I have ever seen Joe go is about 15 lbs
Thanks although it's not quite that clean anymore The paint is coming off rapidly, and I am not helping any I'm sure.
