Super SWEET! Can you post more detailed close ups of them please? I'd like to see how wide they are close up to see the tread width to side wall ratio. Also, can you post shots of the fender trimming job when your done? Really wanna see how it turns out. Man I really wish you'd been all done before I moved.

Are you looking for a picture like this???

Mark sent me that picture because I think we both had the same concerns. BTW I'm getting 37" Trxus also.

Thanks Dan, those look pretty good. You'll love the Trxus, I loved my 34's and really like my 38's.

Oh yeah...Got the tires & wheels from Wartoy (Sergio) at 4WheelParts in Texas...Saved some money and picking them up at the Phx warehouse was hassle free. My local Discount Tire supplied the valve stems and mounting for $11 ea. and didn't have any problem adding the #9 lead shot.

Thanks Serg!

I still can't believe how quite these are. Friday I was crusing down the freeway (on rubberized asphalt), windows up, A/C on, and heard a FS Chevy going the other direction like it was a plane flying overhead :)

I put my first hole in the sidewall on the last trip out............it took a rock shaped like a bayonet, 20 miles an hour at full lock into it at 9psi and it punctured just enough to make a slow leak...........so needless to say I've been impressed with how tough they are. Just make sure you have certs and all is good! :D

A couple things on the truck, but mostly other stuff around the house. I do believe I have an out-of-round tire that's keeping me below highway speeds....hope to get that taken care of at 4WP this week. I want to be able to keep up with the caravan come this August :)

Mark, what if anything did you do about your leaf springs being shorter than they should have been and thus was your measurement problems? Did you get them to make new ones?

Mark in Az
05-14-2007, 07:25 PM
I've been meaning to send you the info. The full number for the springs you have is T85F30077F200E112 or E for extended and 112 for 1 1/2" so they were made correctly for the part number ordered. I hope to have the fixed ones in a little bit. I'm filing this under "shiat happens" ;)

Ok, thanks for that info. What Randy from AOR sent me did not have that E112 on the end of the number. Good to know.

How are those tires as far as out-of-roundness goes? That question is open to anyone who owns the Truxus tires. I'd like to get a set myself but am concerned I'll get out of round ones. Might just stick with MT/R's? :D

On my second set of perfectly round and smooth tires. They are radials, so out of round will be rare, not unheard of but rare.

I'm running the 38.5's and they are the smoothest "large" tire I have run (including MTR's) they balance well and perform excellent in the rocks......for a radial tire they are nice and beefy as well.......just make sure you get the load range E tire with the thick sidewalls.

I've heard from several guys that the TRXUS tires ride really smooth, and only on some occasions do they bounce due to out of round problems. But if you're trying to compare them to the MTR's when they cup. I guess you could go either way.:2cents:

Yup, 10 ply was not avalible for a 15" tire. I could have gone with a 16" wheel but 17's are more common. BTW I'll try and snap a pic tonight with the fenders all trimmed up.
