    15.50 wide tires

    Anyone out there running 38x15.50 or 40x15.50 on their JL/JT?

    Not on my JL or JT but I've done it a couple of times on my JK's. Great looking setup but it has it's pluses and minuses and enough so of the later that I now run 13.50 again.

    My purpose is for the Pacific Northwest muddy conditions.

    The kind of super tight trails that you guys have IS the reason why I stopped running 15.50. With full width axles and 15.50s, my JK's stood super wide and it was difficult to squeeze in between the trees. I would NOT recommend them for you.

    So what you’re saying is, if the trails weren’t tight you’d go back to running 15.5s.

    LOL - Not necessarily. I mean, for the cool factor, for sure. For performance - I can't say they actually offered any significant gains.

    I think Mel had 15.5s on his gladiator at sema but haven’t seen any pics since then

    15.50 is what he wanted but wasn't able to get them in time.

    I was wondering the same thing. I have 38 x 15.5 SSRs on my gen 1 RAM and I love them. They drive and handle fantastic and they look awesome. I've been itching to put some on my jlur but was hoping to get some feedback first.

    If you make the jump I want to see for sure!
