If only I was running 20's, they'd only be 130 a piece!

That is a good price for the 315's though!

I don't remember ever saying that? With my new lift the old 295's look small. I plan to stud these for winter and probably run TrXus or the New General Grabbers next summer.

I thought we ALL said that at one time or another

IMO, the 80 series when lifted crys out for 315s...It just looks so much better, especially from the arse end. 285s just look too narrow...Not sure how the 295s look.

Cool thanks. I just bought a set for my Defender and although they have 0 miles, they sure look decent. I need a set for my Dodge.

I agree. My 295's just look small now. I will loose a little up-travel by dropping my bumpstops but it just needs 315's.

FJCs are the same way in my opinion, they look way better with 315s..Thanks Marco and FJ Brady for the push..

Corbet is there any good data on the roll resistance on these?

From what I have read on MUD they are a little louder on the HWY than my Nitto TG's. So probably a little more resistance than those. All reports are good in the snow. Our county sheriff's vehicles run them down here. I spoke with a few last winter and they all loved them for snow. I plan to stud them up personally. Then run something else in the summer.

If I were going to only run one tire year round these would still be high on my list. As would another set of TG's or the TrXus. I really need studs where I live, just ask Marco. And with the kid now I'm going that direction.

Would it be pushing it if I grabbed those with no re-gearing, I have 285 right now and I haven't re-geared at all?
