kanati mud hogs

What's the price on a 37 ?

I remember searching for reviews. A guy had these in 35 for sale. People seemed to like them. Not many if any negatives.

Just found this recent article on Fourwheeler.com they reviewed the 37" Kanati Mud Hogs. The article at the end states they are 2-ply sidewall, but the Kanati web site says 3-Ply.

http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/wh...mudhog-review/

For less than $300 each installed, I'll take the gamble.

OK, so the tires came in and I got them installed. BTW, Sam's could not install them, so I took them to a shop friend of mine that installed and balanced them. I have them installed on the stock Rubicon Rims with 1.5" Spidertrax Spacers. There is some rubbing at full turn of the wheel.

First impressions, on the road they humm a little but not bad at all.
* They measure 36.5" @ 30psi on the Jeep. I plan to drop to about 25 psi, and chalk test them, as it is the edges are not touching pavement.

* Weight of the tire with the stock Rubicon wheel is 96.5 lbs. Currently have the spare on the stock carrier with a MRBP adapter and flipped 3rd brake light.

I should have them in some mud and rocks within the next few weeks, I will update on their performance then.
