Has anybody had these tires before? I know they've been out forever but I've never seen them in person. I'm thinking about selling my mudgraps and getting some 36x14.5 pj's. I really don't offroad anymore so that doesn't matter I was just wondering how they do on the street and how many miles to expect out of them.

Really? They look like a regular mt tread pattern I figured they would go at least 40k. I've got about 17-18k on my mg's will well over half tread left. I rotate them every 2k.

One or two guys on here have ran them. From what I've gathered from the various forums is that they are mainly junk (heavy as well). Get some KM2's, STT's, or something of the like and I can almost guarantee you'll have better results. Or even a BFG AT or Nitto Terra Grappler if you want an "aggressive" at.

well i can get a set of 36x14.5x18's for 1100 which isn't bad at all. thats how much I paid for my grapplers. the only thing about km2's and stt's and all them other regular mt's is that they only come in 12.5 wide and everybody has them. I want something a little bigger and more aggressive looking but I might as well get swampers since pj's are junk.

My experience was the exact opposite. I found them to be an extremely hard tire, the compound was hard enough that chunking was a real concern. As a used tire I couldn't get them to balance well (they're heavy to begin with) and had death wobble on my 60 as a result.

My cousin runs 37" PJ's on his 95' Z71.... He has had them for years now and they still have alot of life in them. But, with that said, its not his DD anymore either.

He's never complained about them though.

I had them in 38 x 15.5 and really liked them. I didn't notice them giving me problems due to being excessively heavy, but I didn't look up the numbers either, nor was I really concerned with a couple pounds per tire when looking at 38s for a 7000lb truck. I got a good 40k out of them and that was with only one rebalance/alignment in 4 years (I did rotate them often though). The biggest thing for me was they are load range E, most 38s are only C, so think about that if you're goin to tow anything heavy.

Overall I liked em, they ran great on the street, did well in the snow and awesome in the sand/desert. I'm probably going to get them again - they are definitely better than the radial TSLs I have now.
