Anybody running 37s??Comments?

Just curious if anyone was running the new 37s yet. I'm debating on whether or not to move from my 35s to some 37 ssrs. I know the downfalls of the SSRs, thats what my 35s are. I'm curious about the weight difference, tub/fender clearance problems, etc. Anyone that has some please give me some feedback.

I sold a CJ5 sometime back that had the old 37X13.50 TSL's that Interco no longer makes. I was running a spring over with 2" lift springs and a little fender trimming and no problems.

Of course they were bias ply and my gas mileage sucked - at least SSR's are radials. A buddy runs 35's and loves 'em. You just have to spin them a little faster to clean the goo out!

<font color=purple>The old "37" TSL's are still made. They're now stamped "38X12.50". They changed the stamp on those as they were filling in the gaps in their line. That was at the time the 36X12.50 was introduced & the 38.5X16 was still on the drawing board. They figured that instead of a 36 & a 37, it made more sense from a marketing standpoint to have a 36 & a "38", when in truth there's only about 3/4" difference between the two.</font color=purple>
