So now that there are some IROK's out there running around how are they holding up on the street/weekend offroad trips, any problems, etc? I'm trying to decide between, IROKS (39.5), SX's (38) and PJ Dirt Grips (38 but too much $$). If your running them on Hummer Rims post up some pics!

Just tossing some sorta-realted info info into the pot. Went wheeling with a guy on 42 TSLs, and Domenic had Frankie's buggy out there on the 39" IROKs. I'm running 38.5 SXs.

With neither aired down, the 42s were the same height as the IROKs, although that buggy is light enough (3100 lbs) that the tires don't noticably bulge when parked @ 8 PSI. IROKs run big, and it's about time Interco had a tire that did that. :)

Oh, and we did get a lil' bit of video. ;)

I've heard the bigger PJ's above 36's don't work as well. Just what I've heard.

Are you talking about IROKs? I haven't heard of them being available in radials, and Interco's site doesn't show them.

When I ordered them from Les Schwab the guy said there were (2) differnet part numbers for the 39.5 x 13.5 x 15. One for Radial and 1 for Bias. I'll get my receipt and get the part number in a few min.

I didn't think they made the 39.5 in a radial? At any rate how do the bias ply's handle?

I'm not lucky enough to have a tow rig or another DD so I need an all around tire, probably the MTR
It's all about priorities. I run 38.5s SXs, so I bought a 1987 Chevy Sprint that I couldn't sell for $100 if I wanted to. Looks like this, but has been hit in the front, has a cracked windshield, burns oil, and leaks antifreeze.

Good plan. But some of us wouldn't be caught dead in that thing, not to mention anything less than a lifted 4x4. :flipoff2: That's why God invented the radial mud terrain. :D

Let go of some of that pride. :flipoff2: It will allow you to have a more serious off road machine. I drive a Geo Metro to work. Can't beat 45 MPG out of a $400 car.
