I wheeled with a guy that had those on his JK back in November. He didn't have trouble anywhere and they cleaned out better than I imagined they would. The rest of the group was peppered with MTR/Ks, KM2s, and even a set of X-Terrains on AndreLopez99's rig.
I was impressed with their capability after considering them a show boat tire for many years. They were the first to offer a 38" tire for a 24" wheel. LOL!
Talk to 2k2Wrangler on here, he's running them and doesn't seem to have any issues with them either.
Here's a video - a bad one - of the JK mentioned above. They didnt' spin much here and that's a pretty large, wet ledge.
If you check out the videos of JeepNick and the Falken boys doing some CRAZY stuff with the Wildpeak AT I think you'll see that the tread pattern isn't everything.
I'd call this a good all around directional tire with potential to give you a long tread life.
One side just gets a 3 tire rotation lol. Front to spare, rear to front, spare to rear.
I might just not rotate it in. She only drives 10-15k/year, and it'll be less since I bought the xj to haul the kids/dogs...
I wish I had a better answer for ya man. Its the only negative with directional tires.
Fair enough. I figured it was either
1. don't rotate it in
2. like you mentioned - one side gets a 3-tire rotation
or 3. you do a normal 5-tire rotation, but have to have at least one re-mounted every time you rotate (seems like a huge hassle, but would get the most even wear out of all 5)
so i finally got mine out wheeling this weekend (pics to follow) and was very happy with their performance. I never once felt like i needed more tire to make an obstacle. They gripped well on all surfaces from dry rock to muddy hill climbs.
I'm very very pleased with the tire. AND i drove 80 mph for 4 hours to and from rausch creek
