Question Tire Questions

Ok, I plan on buying a TJ and lifting it this fall. My question is with tires. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or info on these tires. The tires have in mind are the Maxxis Creepy crawlers, SS Irok Radial, and the Pro Comp X-terrains. I live in MI, and where i offroad is usually damp clay and packed dirt, or is dry and dusty. There are some really wet muddy trails with deep mud holes too. I wanted to know which tires would be good, and which ones are better for certain situations. I also plan on driving it on the street every now and then. I will have a second vehicle. Also any personal expirience would be helpful. Thanks!

If you have mud, you can never go wrong with a super swamper. The irok is a great tire. I have heard the x-terrains are terrible in mud, but no personal experience to back that one up

I figured the iroks would be good in mud, and my buddy just got some x-terrains for his jeep. Thanks for the info.

I have MT Baja Claw radials, and they are abit difficult to clean out in clay type mud, but not impossible with a little wheel speed. I have only had mine on for a month, but I love them.

I have seen the IROK radials (36x13.50x15 i think, 36 inch for sure), they are truly the epitome of the offroad tire (next to Krawlers).

That was the size of irok i was going to go with(36x13.50r15). Do you know anything about the mileage to expect. I will have another vehicle to drive, but i'm going to be tempted to drive my jeep all the time.

I also wanted to know if anyone has any pics of 36x13.50r15 Irok radials. I want ed to know if they run kind of narrow because i don't want a skinny tire on my rig. ANyone know anything about the MT Baja radial MTZ's. Sorry about all the questions, but as a full-time college student i want to make sure i buy a good tire.I have a limited budget. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well ,as a fellow college student (with family), I understand the budget.

I have seen the MTZ's on the trail. They did OK, but the owner stated that the Goodyear Wrangler MTR's were 10x better. As far as the IROKs running a bit skinny, I do not know. They look bigger than my claws, but that may just be in height.

FWIW, I paid $735 for my claws to be delivered to my door, $40 to have them mounted and balanced. That was from Rough Country in Tennessee. I talked to Jason if that helps.

I do not know if C-town = Chicago, but in case it means any town here in Oregon, check out www.buildajeep.com for any prices on tires.

Thanks for the help, i looked at the claws and it is one of the tires i'm now considering. I call clarkston, C-town, it's about an hour north of detroit. Let me know how your claws wear cause as i stated before, i will have another vehicle, but will still want to drive my jeep all the time. I actually have a YJ now, but i'm adding a tj to the mix this year.
