10 ply PBR on the JK

How do you all feel about the 37" PBR and the 10 ply construction?

Any issues with it on the JK? 10ply seems pretty darn stiff.

Considering a set of the PBR Radial for my occasionally DD and weekend wheeler JKU.

Thanks in advance for the replies JKO!

"my occasionally DD and weekend wheeler JKU."

That's my rig's position. I love my PBRs in all conditions. Their only weak point, imo, is steep sandy granite inclines where the lugs have nothing to grab onto. 8000 - 9000 miles experience with them.

I was really amazed on how well the 10 ply bagged out after a few wheeling trips to break them in. I have zero hesitation recommending them from a 10 ply/stiff sidewall concern.

not ideal for any type of on road use. Bias ply tire so punctures destroy them. PERFECT for a trail rig and if i had a duramax and trailer, id have pit bulls on my jeep, but thats not a practical choice for me. Think about a different option if you mainly do highway driving
