How are they? I know a few of you have been running them for a while now and I'm curious with them not being as wide as a tsl if they tend to dig too much. I am considering them soon in the 36" size and am hoping the review is good /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Thnx

No not for only sand but we do have a fair bit of it around here. I live in a very dry climate and there is more than a few spots that I've found some sand. My 33x12.5's have always done alright but it could always be better.

The Iroks just look like a much better tire to me for everything else other than that, which is why I'm looking into it.

No I don't really like the looks of those and I don't think they would perform as well as the iroks would. Maybe in the sand but not on anything else.

The shoulder lug design looks awsome for sand. I think the center lugs will leave a lot to be desired. If you *sight* down a tires tread and see light through it they usually don't do so well in the sand. This is all a theory of sort as I have no first hand experience with them.
My .02 (I usually get change back so don't feel bad if you ignore the above)

well i havent been in huge areas of sand, but i have been in a few spots and my Micky Thompson Baja Belted 35/17.50/15s are about the most awesome tire i have seen in sand, i can go anywehre any time, they are great, i run about 9lbs in them, and when you get to spinnig them really fast it sounds like a tire burn out on pavement, lol i dont think they are great for anything other then sand and pavement, but i do like them, and they just look awesome on my blazer, lol
