I am going to have to replace my tires soon (285/75/16) and have been looking at the PJ's. Looking for some feedback on ride, grip and treadwear. Thanks!

The guy on trucks said there a good tire for everything. Not sure what to say to that.

I talked to a local guy who had a set and he said they were the worst tires he has ever had. Apparently they are near impossible to balance for some reason. I've actually heard that from a few other people too.
I think Chris King (valkyrie) had a set for a while, maybe he will see this and chime in.

Some guys who work at a local shop also said they are hard to balance, mainly because they're so friggin heavy. Quite a bit more weight than other off road tires so they say.

Not very many resounding reviews of these tires. I guess I will stick with my tried and true Bridgestone M/T's. Thanks to all for the comments.

This is only what I have heard as I have never ran these tires but I have had 15 sets of tires and 4 sets of wheels on my truck in a matter of 5 years...

Wear-Terrible
Traction-Great except ice and wet roads
Ride-Like any other mud tire

I suggest the GoodYear MT/R's or wait and see what the brand new redesigned BFG Mud Terrain looks like when it come out in April, or it is supposed too anyway... I am sure it is getting redesigned to hang with the MT/R's cause the old KM style sure can't, not in my opinion anyway...

I went out with a guy that has a Hummer H1 with the PJ dirt grip tires. We beat the sh** out of that hummer in the dessert and the tires held up great. They were really loud and VERY out of balance on the highway though. For the abuse that we put them through and that he puts them through though, I'm impressed they weren't worse than they were. He was missing all kinds of chunks and tread from rocks and stuff too. I would say for a dedicated off road machine, they would be good, but not for a driver.

I think that they are really expensive, and I have heard that they have problems balancing them because of their weight.

I know I guy running the 38x15.50's on a superduty and he loves them he siad his ride great and do good for an all around tire but didn't do so hot in the mud. Alabama red clay requires some awesome grip. He was switching to tsl's.
