Got a good deal on some like new 36 13.50 r15 irok radials. Mounted them on some new 10in wheels. Gonna run them just for the snow season. Hopefully the D 30 ring and pinion holds up with 4.88s.

I haven't seen a set of super swampers on any rig in years. I used to run LTB's daily but quit once they hit $200 for 31's. I think everyone else followed suit.

I have run super swampers before. Noisy, yes for sure. I am toying with the idea of irok radials and was just looking for some input. I have 15" rims I am going to run and that limits my choices for 37s

Yeah I loved my super swampers but cost way to much. I want to run 34 10.50 15 on my mj but 33 12.50 15 are 300 bucks cheaper for some m/t

These Irok radials cost about $1600 new, tires alone. I mounted and balanced them myself. Appeared to take the same if not less weight than my 35" MTR's took... Pretty surprising. One of them had a pretty good wobble in it. They are DOT 2016 tires though so the rubber is still nice and fresh

Same here. I prefer small 15" wheels and 37" tires have become limited. I was going to buy a set of 37 12.50 Trxus M/Ts. Also made by interco. Excellent for street and ice/snow. Tons of siping and not too aggressive.

My other choice is Toyo Open Country. But Toyos tend to have rubber that is kind of hard. Long life, but not as good traction

Initial review of these tires. Loud. Obnoxiously LOUD. Sounds like a jet plane taking off from 30-40mph. Other than that they are smooth rolling at 60mph. No steering wheel shimmy or vibration, just tire hum. These are great tires for a rig you don't trailer to the trail, but not so much for a daily driven Jeep. I see myself selling these after I get a few snow runs in. MTRs are silent compared to these suckers.

Suckers are aggressive looking! They look great on your Jeep.

I put on a IronMan4x4Fab steering box brace a few months ago. I got one from the first batch. Latwr he started making sector shaft support bearings to go with the brace.

I had to grind the pitman arm down 1/16th of an inch on top and grind the bracket itself so that the steering wheel wouldn't bind from the pitman arm touching the bracket. Ive had bad luck with IronMan4x4Fab's products fitting without modifications done first. I like their beefiness and that's enough to keep me going back I guess...

Iroks are hands down the best deep snow tire I've driven on to date. The Tread compound is the same as a snow tire.
