PNW tire choices

So... for the guys that have run various tires in the pnw

I'm looking at 39s or 40s

I've only run PBR bias for big tires, and they're hard to get currently
(my 37s ran like 35.5 actual height at street pressure around 22 psi)

I can get interco iroks, maxxis trepador, creepys, and pro comp mt2, all in a 40 on a 17 inch wheel (doing double beadlocks this time) pretty easily, and at a little bit of a discount.

What says the hive mind?

Iroks are probably the most consistent tire for pnw.. good at all, great at nothing. For hive mentality run to 4wheel suck and go jump on the pro comp bandwagon and go make elbe great again.. i will say i was really impressed with pro comps in the snow though lol.. I'd really say good ole tsl's and iroks are best. I pick iroks cuz they lighter and break less parts. Or blow everyone's mind and get the greatest tire ever made.. the super elusive interco thornbird hahaha!

*edit*
Why do you need double beadlocks? Super snow wheeler? 90% of our trails are dirt roads and honestly dont really require beadlocks at all imo.. what you gonna run for wheels?

Iroks like stated above. Consistently a better snow tire than most. Decent rock tire aren’t too loud wear like shit if you get bias. Sidewalls are thin.

Edit: run single headlocks wrap inner bead with duck tape to prevent burping.

I still peel lots of inner beads on the trailready/pbr combo. That's the only failure I've had on the pbr though.
I've got a set of 17 steelies. figure I might as well.

Yep^^ i agree with the thornbirds hahahahaha my radial iroks are wearing way faster than my bias ones did. Id run bias iroks over radials anyday. The flatspots are non existent on radials though.

Ive always had that problem.. i just found 6 to 8 psi is the magic number to keep the inner bead.. go out on 8psi and refill when you see "6" lol i dont do the super epic snow wheeling thing.. fuck that.. its cold and boring lol!! So i don't need the pull the valve stem mentality on low air pressure.

Yeah I'm not really thinking snow so much. Just the pnw norm....some rock, dirt and roots.

Well after talking to Bodhi last night, I'm either going to go swampers or the Cooper stt pro.
Kinda leaning to swampers. Irok or tsl bias.
Tsl probabky be flexier, but irok tougher.

I run sticky 40" Treps, but I don't snow wheel. No complaints. I run 5-8 psi on single beadlocks with a 3K lb crawler.

Yes, you are.

You're more likely to know him as Mr. Stubbs.

Talked to Mike (you'd know him as crash) And I guess I'm going with IROKs

I ran iroks for years, switched to nitto trail grapplers just to try something different. Glad I did they have out performed the iroks in everthing.

It depends on the rig. 39.5 irok is by far the most popular here in northwest oregon on the jeeps and toyotas.
the tsl is hard to beat for a fullsize. I loved mine on my old k5
The treps are proving to be super versital. And I've seen promising stuff from The 40" tsl/sx. But the one that impressed me the most for what it is, is the procomp mt
