Ok all... I had them mounted and balanced at Toby's Alignment in Palatka, FL on Friday. My Toe-In and Camber was out a bit, so they added an alignment as well. I have the 315x75x16's... mounted on ION ALLOY 16x8 (174's) and let me tell you... I love the way these tires look!!! (Pictures will be added tomorrow).
My total out the door price, to include the alignment, was $932.87
I have a new ION ALLOY 174 ordered, and will get the 5th Maxxis Bighorn in a week or so.
Ok, thus far...
The tires balanced with ZERO issues. The rubber is very consistent. The ride is very nice, compared to my older Liberator AT's... even for an MT.
The noise is a slight hum... but I find it pleasing. I have a Hard Top, and Full Doors... so, that makes things quiet. I know they will get louder as they wear... but I'm game.
There is little siping on them, so I don't know how they are in the rain...
My speedo is WAY off now. I'm running 4.88:1 gears, with Spartan Lockers... and with my 2 door Automatic, there is more than enough gear now. It stays in Overdrive with zero issues. Even with my GOBI roof rack.
My jeep is straight as an arrow driving down the highway. No bounce, no pull when I hit the brakes, just drives smoothly.
I have 4 Rubi 4Door Springs / Shocks with TF Pucks, and there is tons of clearance for these tires.
2.5" RK Stock Mod Lift with Billsteins coming soon.
All in all, I am very happy with these tires. Now my Jeep looks like a JEEP!!!!!
Pics will be posted tomorrow.
