irok tires

I was thinking about getting a new set of tires and i mostly will be driving them on the road does anyone know how the iroks hold up ( do the roar or notch up). I am also looking at the trxus and wondering the same thing. I have a 1983 chevy 1/2 ton with a 6inch lift with a 1-2 inch shakle lift in the front and wondering if anyone knows if i can fit a 37 12.5 tire under it.

Truth be told, Super Swampers in general don't hold up on the road very long.
Iroks aren't probably the best choice for daily driver tires, and trxus definitely aren't either.
You want something that holds up well and sounds quiet, you need to look at some Dick Cepek FCIIs.

Toyo mud's are an aggressive tire, hold up great on the road, and are suprisingly quiet and smooth on the road. I have heard the 37" is really hard to find right now though?

I run SSR's, and have buddies on the TRXUS M/T's and Irok Radials. The TRXUS are on a 4-runner, but they seem to be lasting very long. My SSR's and another set on a Tacoma are gonna be gone in about 15K on each. Same about for the Iroks. 37's will clear with a little trimming on the bottom of the fenders and long as you don't have HUGE backspaced wheels. Your 10 bolt axles might not like you though.

I've heard a lot of good things about Trxus M/T's and Iroks. My friend has a set of Iroks on his jeep. They are 37x14 on 12" rims. They are the biased ply and are very quiet. They seem to be wearing well and no vibrations although he's only had them since the begining of summer. My other friend is running Trxus M/T's 35x12.5 on 10" rims on his jeep and they took a lot of weight but seem to be fairly quiet and there's only minor vibration. As far as wear, he also bought them at the begining of the summer. I'm not sure if a heavier truck would have any other effect the tires?

do you think that the mt classic2 with 4.75 inch backspacing would work or is this a little to much backspacing
