Most tires are a harder compound as you get halfway through the tread or so. Which is part of the reason I normally sell my tires around half tread. Anyway, they typically get a little louder and don't grip as well in the rain and snow.

Best tire for the $$ I have ever had. I would suggest these tires to anybody, for any rig, for any style of driving.

I still have yet to find anything that they have a problem with. On the HWY at 35 psi they ride smooth as an A/T, At 25-30 psi, snow is no problem, Air down to 18 psi and they will give you a comfy ride over rock, Air down to 12 psi and they just turn into a clawing animal, air down to 8-9 psi and tear thru the sand dunes.

i'm going to do a leveling crank, once i find somewhere with a lifetime alignment or something along those lines, up here... then a 3" BL

which would be better though? 33x10.5 or 33x12.5? i do a lot of street driving, so i'm thinking the 12.5's for extra footprint on the pavement

Mine got a lot noisier after I rotated them the first time. Still ride fantastic though, noise isn't a big concern either.

You won't notice it much if you rotate them more often (3k miles or so). I went over 5k miles at one point and noticed a lot more noise initially. Just part of running 12.50s on 7.5" wheels I guess!

Ah maybe thats what it is, I'm rotating them at 5k intervals. I'm due for another rotation in 500 miles, maybe i'll start bringing it in every 3000

hey, are they directional tires? additionally, which pattern would you use to rotate? rears come forward, fronts go diagonal?

Non directional. That rotation pattern would be good. The shop here was only front front to back and I started noticing different wear on the coast side and acceleration side of the lugs.

you shoudn't... not if the lugs are properly tightened... wear means there is movement and friction...
