I absolutely love my big joes! Great traction on EVERY surface. The compound is nice and soft and the tread is nice and aggressive!

I would rather grab zombies. Lighter and 4 to a package plus they are made to fit the 17mm max size tire.

Big Joes aren't that heavy. They are large, but all I saw on my MGT was an increase in performance. They were even lighter than the stock MGT tires!

I have moabs on Axial beadlocks on my Warhead. Unfortunately I haven't gotten a chance to test them out due to weather conditions, but I can show you what they look like at least =)

Pay no attention to my lame bedsheets. It was the only clear space I had nearby.

Oh yeah, and I realize they're mounted backwards.. a slight retard spell came over me.

Compared with the stock tires, these seem like they fit the size of the truck better! =)

Bigger is better, right?

FYI, Big Joes are lighter than LST2 stock tires are lighter than Muggy stock tires... And they're all almost definitely lighter than Axial beadlock rims with any tires..

Do you really think your clutch will survive any of those huge 40 series tires? I would look into some lower -profile race style tires - Axial Cubez, Crime Fighters, - heck, Muggy stock tires, etc.. I can't just imagine a Muggy with Big Joes is gonna last very long.. - the clutch anyway..
