Of course. They're awesome.

The only time I ever had a problem in the rain was going downhill about 40-45mph (faster than I should have been doing for the conditions) in one of those drizzly rains where the ground is just wet. The light changed and I was a bit far away to not stop. So I hit the brakes and the rears locked up. I might add, this was also right after the 8.8 with disc brake swap....so I've learned the feel of the pedal better since then and it's never been an issue.

I can spin the tires if I try...but I've really gotta hit the go pedal when dropping it in to second.

Get them. You will NOT be disappointed. (Unless the excess weights to balance them bother you)

Thanks for the info. Nah, the balancing doesn't bother me, I was just curious how much weight they're going to take. Mr. Green

Okay, time for new tires - I've stretched mine as much as I dare. How do these run for sizing? Has anybody measured them mounted and on what size rim? TIA

I havent measured mine, but Ive read quite a few times that the TrXus run right on there advertised size. A few months back I read in either JP or 4Wheel and Offroad, that any Interco tires the have run have been real close and some a little over there advertised size.

Same here. I run metric's though...in general, metrics seem to run truer to size.

Just for comparison sake.. My MT/Rs run about 32.6" and they are 33s!
