Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the "Old-Tread" w/the new "Kevlar" & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a "Monsoon" in the afternoon & went for a "Test-Ripp"... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They "Dig" & "Float" over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the "New Tread" @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were "Flinging" & they track fantaitic, No "Drift" in 6 to 12++ inches of "Sloppy Mud" (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the "Extra Tread" down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, "Aired Down" on the "Rocks" (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are "The Ones" to buy if they are in need of "New Shoes" for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!
