Iroks.

Question though: For a rig that driven on the street that much, why don't you get a set of wheels/tires that you can drive on the street and keep the bias big tires to bolt on before you go wheeling?

Weird you didnt state what type of terrian you wheel. Do you have dbl beadlocks to air down super low? what type of gears and hp etc etc..But on the street just get whatever is cheaper..

I tend to say iroks for those of us who have low HP rigs with higher gears, they tend to clean way better than tsl's in those situations.The sidewlls are super thin at least on the bias ply tires and they are softer than the tsls..Personally i hate them and want a set of rockers next in the 42" flava but with 4.10s still in the axles and a weak big block chevy i get great performance from them.

My last rig had TSl's but with more hp and gear..They are the tougher tire and ive found they have more contact with the surface so they are safer and work better on rocks

I love my Iroks. I have TR beadlocks and havent had an inside bead problem yet, down to 4 psi.
I run them around 16psi on the street and can hop in and drive to work after sitting for a week and they roll nice and round, even in the winter.
They arent obnoxiously loud either. I have also had my rig up around 70-75 with no balancing and its not bad at all. Im on my third set of bias Iroks and I have been very happy with them all.

Sharp New Mexico rocks. 4.0L six, 5.38 gears. I'm on Krawlers now, but I keep cutting and gashing them. I know nothing is perfect, but I used to run Swamper stickies all over the Hammers and never had a sidewall issue.

I don't drive it every day. Don't want to swap wheels all of the time either.

Great to hear. Mine are on DIY steelies and I burped em 4 times in one day last trip. So I got some TR's to put em on since I had great luck with my last set.

Ran 39.5 x 17 Iroks on a 4500lb rig both street and trail for a little over 3 years. They worked pretty good and drove the street and freeway as good as could be expected for a bias ply tire. (65mph) I would have bought two more to replace my beat up ones but could not find them. So I looked a t Pitbull Rockers. I could not run the 39.5 as the width would not work on my rig so I ended up with 42's, I have one trip to Johnson Valley with them and they work great. We hit the road and drove to Bullfrog area and they were better than the Iroks on the asphalt. I will be running my normal trails (Fordyce/ Rubicon) this year and will have a more heads up comparison on obstacles but I like them. Really wish they would make a 40 as my rig is kinda setup for that but so far so good. Mark
