NEW MEATS

finally made the jump to 37's. I hope these are great offroad cause they suck on the pavement. Now I just need to get some new wheels to mount my street tires on and I am good until we can do 40's

Nice. I think I'm gonna make the move to 40's or 42's soon. The 37's already seem small to me. Time to start cutting. I'll have to catch up with you when I get back in town next week.

Creepy Crawlers are great off-road, not so on-road, but you'll appreciate them when the going gets tough.

It's been a couple of weeks and I just wanted to see how those creepies are treating you. I found a pretty good deal on some and am very close to pulling the trigger.

Any thoughts?

I think they burn up super quick on the street. That was the only thing stopping me when I found a set of those in 40's. Those are hands down my favorite tire.... just can't use them on the street that much.

I sold the creepy crawlers and bought the 37" km2 again. I will get back to this later as I am driving right now. I guess the search function works

The creepy crawler , in my opinion, is a very good tire in east coast wheeling. They perform better than the KM2 in loose gravel and mud but the km2 and the krawlers that I am currently running, out perform the creepy crawler on big rock where there is very little loose rock or mud. The sidewall on the Creepy is much stronger than the km2 or Krawler. The down side to this is sidewall flexing. In large rock gardens, the KM2 and the Krawler wrap around and grip rock a lot better than the creepy which is why I switched back to a BFG Krawler. I am willing to sacrifice a sidewall to make it up an obstacle but that is just me. Both the Krawler and the creepy require some substantial break-in before they perform to their potential off road.

On road performance, I was suprised at how good the creepies were on the road. Not as good as the KM2 but as good or better than my krawler. They are definitely going to wear faster than the km2 or the blue lable krawler. There is no perfect tire for for every wheeling situation so you need to identify where you wheel the majority of the time and choose a tire that will get-r-done in that environment. Hope this helps a little

Brad,

Do you have a 37" KM2 laying around? I need a spare until I get new tires (before April).

Your old tire got crazy and I had to put it down:

Mine were stickies as well. It really depends on the rock. For where I go, 90% of the time the km2 was better off road but a place like Golden Mountain orv park, the creepie was marginally better.

Heck yes! Me 'n' the crew.



Truly, I've never even considered Maxxis. From what I've gathered in this thread, they have different compounds, but the same tread style?
