the revo's are still good, but maybe too small after the gear change.

you interested in them?

are the Mastercraft courser CT's strictly a winter tire, or can one run them year round?

my buddy has those on his f250, he says they wear real good on the road. looks like they should do good in snow. good luck!

this pic somewhat disturbs me, yes i know there 8 ply tires and this was taken with 33PSI, the outside edge is not touching the ground, or hoist. i lowered them 30 PSI and that made it a little better, this is of course the rear.

they ride great and make a small amount of noise. great in the rain today.

Mark I think I ran my 285's at like 28psi front and 26psi in the rear. By the way there are a few guys running them on the JK forum I am on and are really like them.

The stock rim is a little narrow, im finding my 285's wear a little faster in the center then the outsides

i dont change mine and it snows as much here as it does there.

a/ts are much much better in the snow on the road but off the road the MT will shine.

tires look good mark, wish i had the extra money for a second set of 37s

i feel your pain zach!

see the MT's are garbage on michigan ice. so traction is the goal with me. i figure these will last me at least 4-5 years of winter use. so its a good investment.

there like drag slicks as they have no sipping and are solid rubber on the ice. lol.

plus it saves them for at least one summer.
