PostSubject: Time for new shoes   Time for new shoes EmptyThu Apr 30, 2015 3:09 pm

I've been running 30x10.5x14 Roctanes and they have worked very well all around. I've got ~1600 miles on them and they are 50-60% tread. Time for some new shoes and I'm leaning towards staying with Roctanes... Might even got to a 31 or 32 and add a gear lift to take the stress off the drivetrain.

Other suggestions?...nothing smaller than a 30"

I love my Blackwater Evolutions.  8 ply sidewalls too, with a harder compound than most tires.

I really like my Blackwaters too. They run a tad small compared to the Roktanes though. My 30x10x12s measure out to about 29" when mounted.

If I were to buy tires tomorrow I would go back with the Roctanes.

Front done and new tires mounted. 72" wide and 24" GC as it sits, will probably settle a couple inches. Now go the rear to do... Rolling Eyes Me poor ole back is killing me but no time to rest. After I get the back done I adjust the preload to lower it some.

Not that I am aware of. I got them from SXS Gear I talked with Chris (the owner) at length about them and the other makes. Seems like a really good guy and he is the patent holder on the design. So far the quality of work is very good, we'll how they do. To be continued...
