    12.50 or 13.50 ??

    Well I waited to long. Cooper STT PRO 37X12.50 just jumped up about $120 ea where I was looking to buy, Now $389.00 And Amazon shows only 4 left at $265 ea. So my question 13.50 is there any pros or cons comparing the two. I can still get the 13.50's for $260. Going to be running Machetes w/3.5 backspace and when I redo the lift going with EVO bolt-on coilovers. Will I have clearance issues with the wider tire? Thanks

    Well with more research I found the 12.50 in the price range I was looking for. Discount Tire. (American Tire). Would still like to hear the feed back on 12.50 vs 13.50.

    13.50 with Machetes will give you a pretty gnarly stance.

    No regrets - although you will tramline on the road a little bit. Not sure if the 12.50 is as bad.

    No problem. I believe I got a great price and can hardly wait to get them mounted up and try them out. Thanks

    I went with the 37x12.50's when Discount was having their Black Friday Sales. Got them installed mid-December. I commute about 50 miles round trip with most being on the rutted highway. So far they have done great. I am running 30 psi cold and have had no problems in the recent snow and ice that we have had on the roads here in eastern Washington. I had just a slight rub at full crank, two washers per side on the steering stop fixed that right up for my set up.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
