Hey sandiego10, did you have any tire rub? How about MPG? Good looking truck.

No tire rub at all, both on road or off road. I'm getting 17-18 MPG on my work commute which is about 75% freeway.

Hey seadogcam I put on the same tires and am satisfied with the choice after a couple winters in CO. Get good mileage, smooth quiet ride, respectable offroad, no problems. Instead of a leveling kit you would probably be better off spending for a lift. The spacers just mash the springs and don't really do anything to improve the ride, performance or handling. They are just a looks thing. I am planning to lift 3" and add skid plates to the bottom at the time of the next tire change when 285s go on. But for the first few years these stock sized Wrangler SAs have been excellent. [IMG][/IMG]
yeah, so far i like those tires. not had a change to go off road yet. hope the tires will last.

Re: leveling kit

My Wranglers have gone 30,000 miles and look just broke in. This brand doesn't seem to get much coverage in the offroad mags, heck if I know why, mine have been great, money well spent.
