Wheeled today with the 255's. The traction was really good, slipped a lot less than with the mud terrains. Aired down to about 20psi in the rear and they drove pretty well.

They RUB It might just be the alignment which I can increase the caster but the way I think about it I might as well just do a cab mount chop just because... the wheels are not centered right in the middle of the wheel well so I think with some increased caster I can get them to work fine without rubbing. They do not rub at full lock only when the wheels are about 45 degrees.

Sitting in a garage? Is that why he has 90% tread left? Most unhelpful...

Actually 95% tread left. I used thwm for a good 6 month I think with a bit of off-road on them. I'd guess I put 7-8k miles on them

How is that un-helpful? They've worn brilliantly so far

He bought a set of 35s....he's been running those.

He put 7-8k on and has 95% left. That's a 150000 mile tire. It's okay, I don't blame him, I exaggerate too.
