Maxxis Creepy Crawlers opinions

So looking into new tires for the TJ in the 37" flavor and have been eyeballing these. Not really a fan of bias plied tires, but since it is mostly trailered and only does short trips to the store I think I can live with it.

So what are peoples opinion on these. Keep in mind they will be run on Arizona trails, rocks, sand, and cinders. I have tried searching, but didn't find any threads directly related to them.

Great off road tire, not so much on road due to the flat spotting. If you are trailering go for it.

Some build info here:

re: Creepy Crawlers opines...

I've not run them but had friends that have; as long as , like thedirtman said, you arent long trekking on asphalt ( they are supposedly so sticky that they get around 15-20k if DD duties occur) 'cause they wear quickly compound-wise. They climb and eat rocks like they were claws or something. They are VERY heavy.
If I were in AZ and describing the terrain you are traversing( and I have wheeed there as well as I am jealous that you live there to have that terrain and kind of weather for your Jeep) I would have to try the General Grabber ( made for sand, pre-running and slick-rock) , but most likely would have a set of MTR Kevlars in 37" as they are light and tough as crud if sticks and roots aren't a big factor like here in Tennessee) but , (this is my next tire upgrade) I cannot get my mind off of those new Falken MTs or the PitBull Rockers Radials.I see that white Rubi that has the 'SYNERGZ' license plate in the Pitbull magazine advert and the radials looks so great on that white JK! If I had the moolah for Maxxis Creepy Crawlers, I would instead run the PBRs ....(all of that is very opinionated and again, I haven't run the Maxxis tires but have close wheeling pals that have passed me that info..and I have driven their rigs with 36" Crawlers..and 40's on another...both being trailer rigs and not driven home afterwards at 90 mph down freeway as I and my Coopers STTs do...)

well one issue I have is I am keeping my stock 16" Moab rims, so I am very limited on the size. Potbelly doesn't offer any 37s for a 16" rim. To give you a idea of mileage, it has only got 54k on it and over 40k was in the first 4 years. I have had a few years where it has had less then 1000 miles put on and it was all offroad.
