meh to me the KORE on the side is just like a brand name or running the skull that comes with the ballistic stuff. plus i got a discount if it said KORE on it. LOL
4 wheels + a spare = 5.................................. 5x32 =160

actually if you had beadlocks you would have been fine. i think having a spare is a good idea but you shouldnt need it.

have you forgot the situation i got myself into? I was buried in the lake, spinning my tires in a soup of rocks and sand. I dont think the ring would protect it.

yeah nevermind, i trailer mine all the time so if something bad enough were to happen i needed a spare id just load it up and go home.

i still think you would not have lost a valve stem. plus this was hopefully a once in a lifetime retarted mistake. :)

I prefer to not let something as minor as a gash in the sidewall of my tire end my weekend of wheelin... lets just leave the spare "discussion" at that.

Always go with a spare! It can't hurt! A lot of guys out here just leave their spare with their trailer/tow rig. If they need it somebody runs back. That way they're not crusing around with a monster spare tire. Maybe you don't have tire shredding rocks out there like we have here in the deserts like Matt and I do. I've seen all kinds of tires get flats. Even stickies get raped of their air reatining capabilites every once in a while.

Judging from their website they were more expensive then my GLO beadlocks, which came with hardware.

huh? its the same price. Great Lake Offroad? Plus I dont think theirs come with hardware, i looked at their site. neither does Kore unless you add it. I just liked the design of Kore's so i went with those.

Quality of these were awesome and there are a ton of people that have purchased them.
