Thanks Again

37 Goodyear MT OZ feedback

The WARTIRES.COM Hummer runs these Goodyear 37 12.50 16.5 MT OZ TIRES and I have to disagree with the above stated "they don't pull well offroad" comments. Copy and paste this link:

That hummer h2 is not having any trouble in the muck up to the doors! And War Tires only sells top quality 90%+ tread life tires.

I ran some on my 4Runner for about two weeks in the winter and I found that they tended to be "un-round" till they warmed up, but they still rode like crap.
Needless to say, they are in storage.

Might as well add my opinion. I am running 406's pressed re-centers and the military tires. Obviously, this is not a 6000lb rig.

They are working great so far, but the only negatives to this setup for me are:
- Heavy (but this is just the rims - I also have the PVC inserts)
- You can tell the rubber is stiffer on the rocks and around some turns as they just do not grip like crazy - but for the wear, I figured it was worth it.
- Mine did not balance the best - they took a huge amount of weight to get close
- Mounted up they only measure 35.5. I would have liked to see a bit more but I think that is about average for a "37"

As you can see below, I disagree with the comment that the sidewalls don't flex. They wrapped around the rocks just fine as well. This was still at 15psi.



I will probably buy a new set once these wear out unless I make this a rock only rig. But... spend the money on having him powder coat them (although the color I painted them looks better than any other than I have seen) because they are a bitch to paint.

They are the best bang for the buck tire out there. Don't expect them to bite like boggers though.

I have them on my H1.... well kinda. They ride so freakin terrible I pulled them off and put some old worn out toyo m/t's on 18 chrome mazzi's that I had on my previous H2. the Toyo's always rode like glass down the road. But they are far to worn to be effective offroad.

Offroad the OZ's are not bad per say. But I air them all the way down to 12psi. On the H1 they never have problems getting traction. However my H1 weighs alot more than the other trail rigs you guys have them on.

Many of them are out of round and get flat spots. This makes them about impossible to balance. I found that inflating them to 50psi while on the highway did help but was still a rough drive.

I plan on keeping my 16.5 12 bolts and getting a set of pitbull rockers however I like the grooving I am seeing and may try that too.

MTs on my p-pump 24v, stock height. Im planning to groove them like the pic above. i need to get them balanced and need to trim a bit more.


Ive got pics of them on about 7 other full size dodges. The only one looks better than mine is a dually. they look just plain awesome on a dually.

I have these on a CJ5. They balanced suprisingly easy for thier weight and seem to ride really well.

hopefully I don't get flamed for asking, but how does one groove a tire? do you just take a heated blade to the lugs, or a angle grinder with a cutting blade?

Any way you want to. ive seen angle grinders, chainsaws, dremels, skil saws, a torch and a knife... but you can buy tire grooving irons from $60 on up that have a heated blade and they work the best.

Those tires we grooved up are below half tread - they are not lasting like everyone states, mostly road driven on an 80's Blazer. They are not chunking though -
