The only problem I foresee is the issue with the Fuzz. Wondering if anyone is having issues with local PD.

Only thing I ever got from a cop, was a stare. No issues, but rotate them frequently (3k miles). Also helps to know where you are...

From what I was told by a Goodyear rep where I get work trucks worked on: All large tread block tires with large voids, need to be rotated more often because for some reason the back of the block will ALWAYS wear quicker.
You'll want to rotate from driver to passenger so the "back" becomes the front.

Maybe I should rotate mine. The outside of my fronts are wearing and the iside of the back are wearing. Not bad but its noticeable. I just thought it was from my silly rock humping burnouts

Pro Comp may be the only one I've noticed that is directional.

Most cops have no idea what headlocks are or which are actually street legal. If you are running a rig that is mostly street 'legal" by looks, you should be fine with the 5.0

so lets get back on topic...who is running these on their daily drivers?

and as a follow up is anyone running them with different tires than the military MTs, like Iroks or Pit Bull Rockers?

And follow up #2, how much of a bitch are they to balance?

I am happy with mine. Running the military Goodyears. They ride better then my 35 inch Toyos did. Im am sure if I spent the time to break down the rims a tires I could get them to be better. I put them together once and had them balanced. Hundreds of miles on dirt roads aired down, and they still ride great on the street.

I'm looking at getting these and not looking forward to dealing with getting them mounted and balanced. You can literally just toss the airsoft inside the tire and add no additional weights? How many BBs do you use?
