To get 30's or 31's ???? - 11/18/09 04:11 AM

I know that there are good attributes and setbacks for choice of tire selection......I wanted to know what you all thought on the matter regarding tire size.....

I got the RSG 4 suspension lift and RB tub lift 1 3/4 inch------Gonna get new mud tires but can't decide if I wanna keep 31 due to power, fuel, and look etc.........???????

I got extra money so I gotta get some tires!!!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/oink.gif" alt="" />

With all that lift why would you go back down to 30s. Go with 31s.

Take a look at xjeepr's rig on Everet's upyourkia web page. He says those are 29.5x11.50x15 Interco SSR's.
His is the red rig with the awesome bumpers, his tires look pretty good as well. Get what you think works best for your rig <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I started with 30" ATs, got an extra set of 31" MTs. After 70,000 miles replaced the 30 inchers with 31" ATs, I will never go back to 30s. When I get mine back on the road I want to get a set of 32" swamper TSL radials to replace the 31" MTs my boy wore out on his Ranger.

My opinion is GO WITH THE 31S!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Thanks for those votes though.

Still not sure yet cause some of these tires are around $250 each! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Sure wish I had that 3 inch body lift though....

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 11/25/09 06:00 AM

31. I went with a used set of 30 to try out, but I think when it's time to get new shoes i'll go up to 31". These trucks don't have any power anyway, and they already get pretty crappy mileage, so I don't think the extra inch will be all that much worse.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 12/03/09 05:05 AM

Another tire size to toss in is 265/75-15. They are 30.5 inch diameter. Haven't found any muds for this size but did find some AT's and snow tires.
If you want taller and a little narrower than 30x9.50's these could be used for onroad.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 12/03/09 10:08 AM

If you need 1" more clearance and bling factor: 31"
If you need more power and fuel saving factor: 30"

I voted for 30" cause I thought you had enough clearance as is. And probrably needed the fuel saving to get to the trails, and added power to tear up the TX desert...

They seemed to me like they lasted about the same as normal new tires...

Just in case you get interested in the 30" tires from treadwright, they offer the mud design like this:
[Linked Image]
But the same style with their Kedge grip comes in a outer diameter of only 29 3/8".
I like the 31" tires that Nukeiridium suggested better.

What do you think about Maxxis mudders???
I'm running a 32x11.5 and are pretty good on mud considering the price.
They clean easilly, do not make noise on road and have a good durability.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 12/06/09 06:43 AM

I looked at the specs on those MUD tires from Treadwright, and they say it's 30.7? must be a typo, I guess.
Posted By: Everet

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 12/06/09 07:19 AM

Most tires that are 31's are not really 31's.
Actually, I believe Treadwrights run larger than most new 31's and 30's.

I was reffering to the 29x30x8. (29 3/8") Treadwright's smallest size of mud tire with KedgeGrip.
[Linked Image]
I emailed in to Joel Hawkins at TreadWright to get the actual O.D. on that style to see if it'll fit my Sporty with only a 3" lift.
Sorry for the confusion.

The 235's should be ok. The 30x9.50's are 30.7 and would most likey rub behind the tire and trimming of the bumper might be necessary.
I will probably get the ATG's since they will be going on my 2wd.
Love my MT's and when they wear out (the have about 1/2 tread remaining @ 20k miles)I'll go with the Guard Dogs. This company sure gives you the most bang for your buck in my experience.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 12/11/09 08:26 PM

30's would be my choice, thats what I ran with! 31's would only give you an extra 1/2" of ground clearance, but would require more horse power to turn and use more gas, and they are more expensive, 30's seam to be cheaper and more plentyfull around here.

do the 31's really take that much more power to turn than a 30? well i guess if the widths are way off yes.

I have a set of 5 truxxus m/t's for sale at the moment on 15x 8 steel wheels.

one rim has a folded lip but has held air for a couple years now.
1 tire still is basically new, 2 tires are very good shape, and the other 2 are decent shape. a little wear to the inside after running them for a few days after an accident that through my alignment out really bad.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 01/09/10 02:29 AM

Thanks for the wealth of INFO as always.

There are some certain brands that I do try and stay away from..(ie--Cooper,yokos and firestone <Think its cooper> though).........

Mickey's are way to BUKU for me!

I thought the one's that X-Jeeper used were 29's though...

And the ones that I do like are a brand that I never heard of before....BTW they changed the prices to $143 each...Still within reason!

In case anyone wonders, this is what a Sportage looks like with the retread 30x9.5-15 Mud Terrain tires from Treadwright, along with the RockSportGear 4" deluxe spring lift package or whatever it is called, and the front bumper.

Nukeiridium,
That truck of your's looks wicked!
Love the look of nobbly tires on a lil rig. Like a stomper.

I get so envious of city foke and they nice clean rigs. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" /> Mine looks like it has been on the trail since birth. I, I ,I, warsh her down regularly, but my Sporty lives on dirt and snow covered roads all of it's life. We usually only warsh her when we is going to town. We wanna blend in on the highway. You know Alaska has only one Highway and it's about a state away from where we live. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

the body lift or the suspension?
front suspension is Ironmn and rear TJ springs.

the 3 inches bodylift, I made it from metal pipes with round metal stops using the rubber bushing original placed between chasis & cabin, the bolts has been changed completelly for a 7 inches due to original bolts are wedded to chasis making all difficult.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/06/10 02:34 AM

The POLL was quite effective in my overall decision regarding tire size.

I decided to stay with the 31's!

Who ever voted "stay with stock" deserves a royal Asss beating!!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I was getting our company car done and I saw tires that I liked ..... So, I got em.

I only bought 2 out of 5 though so far (budget permitting).

They were around $135.00 each...Will get the rest someday and hopefully sooner then later.

Thanks for all the input from you all!

Will keep all of you updated too!

Congratulations on the choosing of new tires. I know how hard it is too purchase tires at such a heafty price. I had to break down and do what you did when purchasing tires. Got two then waited two months and got the other two.
Pics are allways appreciated; nothing like a good visual to stimulate the senses. Can't wait to see them puppies mounted. We'll be here waiting till you get them mounted and pictured.

I reckon it looks better now with the smaller/custom nudge bar, specially if you drive it everyday, you don't want to be wasting petrol lagging all that extra weight, probably stops better too <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />.

Oh I forgot to ask what happened to your grill?

You know what would look cool? Make a custom grill out of that expanded steel stuff like David put on his! Mmm that would look nice and heavy duty / match your Mad max theme <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/23/10 08:21 AM

you would be surprised at how much nicer the ride without that swaybar.
yes the debate about saftey goes on.
just drive it like a truck without a swaybar and you would be good.
i got around that old man and through the colvert without flippin without mine.
warning however,if you try to loosen nuts they will most likly snap.i may have to put mine back on to pass inspection,but it will come right back off.

nice pics. cant wait to see my sport in a set of those.

It fits the truck alot better now. Nice. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> And i'd like to second the swaybar, but that was in another discussion. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

...........and they don't already????? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

Agree with the comments about minus sway bar(s), but only when fitted with uprated springs. Mine handles better with a 2" bodylift, 2.5" spring lift, and 31" tyres than it did stock as a rock. The "chuckability" factor into a corner is far better, with minimal hopping through undulations mid-corner. More confidence inspiring handling.

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/24/10 09:43 AM

Agree with the stiffer springs and cornering. Since my 3" lift, I have been able to corner at higher speeds. Safely.

My sway bar with drop links kinda rubs on the front of the lower arms.......

Is this what you mean Blitz??

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/25/10 08:53 AM

if its rubbin that really aint good. if you want to keep the sway bar ,do it right. lower the front brackets to retain original angle on swaybar. they work kind of like torsion bars,and by changing the angle steeper with a lift it makes the sway bar even stiffer.
sudden change in one direction without sway bar aint to bad,its when you need to correct, thats when there could be trouble.the return is where the extra sway will kick in. it could be bad.i definatley noticed that i needed to be careful.

so if you take it off you need to drive to accomodate. but for just comuting it was so much nicer. try it for a week and tell us what you think.careful with the nuts.liquid wrench and some heat for sure...

should this be a new thread under sway bar?...just askin.
geuss its my fault ,i started the sway bar stuff..anyway GREAT LOOKIN TIRES! more pics when the rears go on..

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/25/10 09:30 AM

I heard somewhere that you want to keep the front and rear diameter of the tires within 1/4" of eachother, and definatly under 1/2" of eachother if your running in 4 wheel drive. Am I correct? Can I drive around in two wheel drive with different diameter tires front and rear? It would be nice to have some mudders on the rear and some all terrain on the front, but I am worried about difficulty matching diameters with todays sizes and tread depth differences. Is this a possibility? Or am I just looking for trouble in the drivetrain?
Posted By: blitz

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/25/10 11:07 AM

i dont use 4wd unless i absolutley have to. even with the same size tires you can bind stuff up between the front and rear tires..i.e..."transfer case".
guy at work was telling me that he uses his 4wd in the rain on highway. in a jeep cj.why were we talikn about it,......he was getting a new transfer case.
that was about 6 months after he had got a new trans mission.
moral of story(i love that line) if you aint slippin and sliding,you will bind up your tansfer cs.so..if your slidin around that much, i dont think a small diameter differene will ruin you.
im picky about this topic.i would try to maintain the same size.but you can get away with a little for awhile.i also like to baby my transfer case chain.lotta work,time,money, to get in there.i dont beleive in a lead foot in the woods either.recipe for some breakage.sometime it has to be done.for the most part i try to just putt thru the trails. as soons as you hear people say "watch this" or "hold on" you can just get the block and tackle out...
now let me give you my philosophy on transendance and how to open your third eye..uhhg enough. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/sleeping.gif" alt="" />

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/25/10 03:21 PM

Ya Blitz is right, you'll be fine as long as their close ratios and you're not driving around on the street in 4WD.

I don't see any reason to be in 4WD in the rain, Sporty's don't have enough power to break loose even if you try!

The tire tread depth and circumference issues have more to do with AWD low tolerance transfer cases that engage all the time.

With that said, same tire size, tread design & depth is still the best way to go.

Just my 69 cents

Thanks for being kind.....But it could be relative for tire size and also safety! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />


I will take a crow bar and bend it a bit cause it is rubbing against the lower arm....

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/26/10 06:28 AM

hydra..im not sure if im right on this.im thinking maybe...your sway bar is upside down.

also it may bolt onto the top of a-arm bolt end.(you would need to rotate the cap end with the bolt threads to point up)
like i said im not sure and mine is off,but this warrants investigation.
either bolted on wrong side,or upside down,or both.
something just doesnt seem right. we need a pic of original setup.

Look at the very bottom of the skid plate to the forks:

Well either mine is on wrong or yours is. Mine sits above the mounting bolts not below like yours.

The bolts that hold the ends of the swaybar to the fork bolt are on like a ball joint. Unbolt them, and turn them facing up instead of down. Then reattach swaybar. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 02/28/10 05:04 AM

You say you do have the drop links? I had to move the swaybar under the original skid plate with the droplinks to attach the swaybar. I have dave's kit. I would take pictures, but of course i don't use my swaybar. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />

Same here my swaybar is under/outside of the skid plate.

Which makes it easier to remove anyway when wheeling...

Re: To get 30's or 31's ???? - 03/01/10 01:05 AM

Have to fish swaybar out from original position. Remount using drop links under stock skid plate. Then mount to a arms in original position which is bolts facing up, nuts on top. Sorry i don't have pic. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" />

Might be a little hard to see as it was not taken for this purpose. I can't remember why I took that pic. The original is much bigger, can see the whole wheel well.
I don't know..measuring something out....lol

Thanks for the Pic.

It will really help us ! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

The Anti-Sway bar still appears to be inside the skid plate and the bolt should be facing up like Nukey and Jaboo said.

Thanks for the pic again.
