I bought a set of these for my CJ, and ran them strictly of road, other than short bursts on road to and from trailer to trail head. I've run them at 4psi since i bought them, and love them. They are the toughest tires I've ever had. The reason I'm writing a review is to encourage you to keep making these. Hands down, I'll buy these before any other tire on the market for wheeling. Fantastic traction, and tougher than anything else I've ever run. Anyone who complains about the road manners, noise and balancing shouldn't be allowed near wheeling vehicles. These tires are for your wheeling rig. Not looking cool at the mall, or running the hiways.
I really have been looking forward to buying a set of BFGoodrich Krawler 35 12.50 17 inch tires. I want to try these on my 12 Ram 2500 Longhorn for Rocks and Rivers. 33 inch size would sell like crazy and would work great for jeeps and my lifted Dodge Dakota.. Please do not discontinue the best off road tire available. Please expand on this idea $$$$
I have run quite a few different tire brands off road, as well as the full line of BFG tires and I am stuck on the Krawlers! I had KM2’s on my last Jeep and absolutely loved them for their off road performance as well as street manners but have always wanted to run the Krawlers. I bought the 39” Krawlers last year and have been beyond impressed! They performed flawlessly on the Rubicon Trail, gripped like glue in Moab, and performed amazingly in the Tennessee mud and rocks of Pennsylvania. They perform very well on the road as well, albeit with the standard mud tire roar, but they have not gotten louder over time like a couple of other brands I have had. The only recommendation I have is that you rotate them every oil change to keep the wear even, especially if you wheel hard. When aired down to 7-10 psi on the trail, they simply wrap around the rocks and provide a ridiculous amount of traction. I love the rubber compound as well and hope they don’t change it. On lines where other’s tires are spinning and not gripping at all, I usually have much better traction. If they do start spinning, they heat up very quickly and the traction definitely gets better. My only hope is that BFG keeps them going on the production line because I had to wait for months on two occasions because they were out of production or concentrating on other tire production. I will probably order another set soon in case they are on hold again. Anyway, these are a “must buy” tire if you are looking for a serious off road tire!
I have a set of 37's on my JK. Love the tire for off road use. The JK is not my daily driver so on road issues don't bother me. I use them all over Arizona and Utah. Pros - great grip - tough tire - air down well Cons - you'll wear 'em out pretty quick on the street - they develop flat spots when they sit for awhile and you'll need to warm them up to get past that I will stay with this tire, but plan to get the 39" version next. The 37" version needs to be wider. They're designed for off road use...great for that. Don't complain if you use them for something they weren't intended for.
These tires are excellent, Ran them for 2 years and about 14,000 miles on a 3500lb Ranger Prerunner and had 65-70% tread remaining. sadly vehicle was lost in a fire. I used the tires in pretty much on every terrain you can think of, sand dunes, desert running and rock crawing out in Cali when I was stationed there and then in mud and clay when I got stationed in NC. These tires even work very well in drivable creeks and rivers on sumberged rockbeds and slick underwater gravel. I drove across the country on the I40 on them in about 40 hours straight and they were a decent enough ride to not need to stop due to driver fatigue. never had any balancing issues with them, I used the bean bag balancing method suggested by the retailer that I bought the tires and wheels from. If you are a serious off-roader I would suggest these tires on a dedicated trail rig or on a daily driver. These are one of the most multipurpose highly useable tires on the market, I have expiremented with 6 or 7 types of mainstream extreme offroad tires and these destroy the competition by miles. only complaint is they are really noisy once they get beyond 10% tread wear and they get terrible mileage compared to a standard mud tire, that being said these are extreme trail tires and are performance based, not comfort based, so apply common sense and understand what the tire is designed for compared to what you want to use it for. Lastly beware these tires are very heavy and rotating them is not very fun.
