I have 35/12.5x15 and was wondering if anyone else is running this tire. i know its not the tire of choice, but its what I got for now.
My ? is..

How low of a psi have you run these tires offroad?

I've run them at 10lbs. and the sidewall seems to flex to the rims edge, just thinkin' about goin' lower. So far I haven't damaged a sidewall. Swampers are goin'on in the near future.

my friend runs 33" pro comps and he runs them at 10psi and they work very good. if your have to run radials, unless your going bigger, those 35s will do the job. you dont have to have swampers. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

i have the 33s and they worked fairly well.i never had any trouble what so ever off road i usually only go to 15-18 but i have gone as low as 5 in the rear and 8 in the front in moab and never had any trouble
but they are on 15x7s so I can push it a liul further then those with wider wheels. I've never expeirenced any sidewall problems!

I've got a friend who runs 33" Pro Comp MT's. He likes them a lot. They seem to be really sticky, and drive well on the road. The sidewalls haven't had many problems, though they seem thin. In fact, he's only sliced one of them, and 4 Wheel Parts gave him a new one, road-hazard style.

I have the 33"s on my Yota. We have only wheeled them once. We aired down to our normal(for a radial 33") 10 psi.
I spent the rest of the ride worried about side walls. These tires are weak!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

i have a set of 33x12.5 on a set of 10 in rims. they are on a zuk and i air down to 4 all the way around. they work pretty good but they are not swampers. i have pinched the hell out of the side walls and they have held up. not a bad tire but not my choice anymore. mike

I have been pleased with the 33" PC MT's performace on/off road, but the strength is another issue. I've already sliced two sidewalls, one on a root on a local trail, one got pinched open out at Pritchet canyon.

Edit: BTW - I run them between 12-14 psi on the trail, 30 on road. Going to 35" MTRs next.
